What is it like to live in Burlington, Ontario?

Welcome to the community page for the Burlington area of Ontario, brought to you by The Rocca Sisters real estate team. 

Burlington, a once serene suburban community has blossomed into a bustling, thriving city that is nestled within the heart of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). MoneySense, one of Canada's leading lifestyle and investment magazines, has recognized Burlington as the #1 mid-sized city in the country to live. And it's easy to see why! 

The city's crown jewel is its beautiful waterfront, which is accessible to all through the breathtaking Spencer Smith Park. And if you're looking for entertainment, Burlington won't disappoint! The city boasts a range of attractions, from Canada's Largest Ribfest to the world-renowned Sound of Music Festival so you will never run out of things to do.

Burlington is a city that's in tune with nature and all the beauty it has to offer. With over 1,436 acres of parkland, it's no surprise that the city is a haven for hikers, birders, and nature lovers alike. And with nine world-class golf courses, it's also a golfer's paradise!

But that's not all. Burlington is home to some of the best hiking trails in the world, including the Bruce Trail and the Niagara Escarpment - a UNESCO-designated World Biosphere Reserve. And if you're looking to take in some breathtaking views, the Waterfront Trail is a must-visit. This stunning trail skirts the shores of Lake Ontario and Burlington Bay/Hamilton Harbour, and it's part of the Niagara-on-the-Lake to Québec border trail.

Burlington is also strategically located in the heart of the Golden Horseshoe, making it easy to access all major centres. You're just half an hour away from Pearson International Airport and downtown Toronto, and only minutes away from Hamilton and Oakville. And with three GO Transit stations and a well-developed local transit system, getting around the city has never been easier.
