This march break, leave the hustle and bustle of daily life behind and explore all the events the city has to offer. Start your day with a warm breakfast at local restaurants such as Skyway Diner, Luk’s Diner or Pearle’s Café before hopping in the car or loading the bus and heading to your first adventure.

Additional activities such a makerspace and the “G scale” model train experience is also included in your ticket turning your trip into a full day adventure.

Sweet, Sweet, Nature:

There is a sweet incentive to connecting with nature this march break. Head to Bronte Creek for their Maple Syrup Festival and start off with a pancake breakfast (with local maples syrup of course!) before exploring the trails or making a stop at the play barn.  For another sweet experience, take a country drive to Mapletown at Mountsberg Conservation area.

Make a Burlington hotel your home base for the week and avoid the hassle of long car drive tantrums or ill time bathroom breaks. With so much to do in the city, a good night’s rest is in order, and if that good night’s rest is in a hotel with pool, even the kids will be begging to stay. Book your stay here.
