Burlington is in the perfect spot as it sits midway between Toronto and Niagara Falls making it the ideal road trip. It’s also rated the best community and the best place to raise a family, there’s a variety of large parks and trails which is perfect for families. Burlington is also home to some of the biggest summer festivals and events such as the Sound of Music which has been going on for over 43 years and the Ribfest, bringing in people from all across the GTA. With that being said there is also some of the best shopping to be found in Burlington and especially thrift stores.
