We went to Burlington to see the lake and enjoy the summer along the shore in this lovely lakeside city. Walking along the lake we loved the views and the people-watching.

Visited downtown Burlington yesterday. It was a beautiful walk along the waterfront. Very relaxing and scenic area. A good hangout place to unwind & catch sunsets.

This is a favourite trail for walking, roller blading and biking along the shores of Lake Ontario. Even more so since the path was completely paved several years ago. When biking, you can also exit at the south end and go for a nice ride...More
