WEEKEND EVENTS: JULY 7 – JULY 9, 2017

The dog days of summer. So hot, you can delight in the lazy pace made necessary by the fact that we simple can not move any faster. It’s like nature telling us to slow down and have a drink.

Sadly, the water level at the beach is still too high. But the breeze at the waterfront, and the significant breeze on the pier, will surely cool you down. Take the kiddoes to a splash pad, or to the ginormous pool at Bronte Creek Provincial Park, then cool yourself down with a beverage at an outdoor patio.  

Downtown and the waterfront is bustling with life, don’t miss out.  Or if you want a nice long walk, hit up one of Burlington’s 9 golf courses. That’s right…NINE.

Take a drive! Here, I’ve even picked out some music for you. Burlington has whatever you are in the mood for: city, country, escarpment and lake.

Summer goes by so quickly…it would be a shame to let it pass you by. Get out there!
