Retail Therapy Heaven

A favorite activity for visitors is shopping!  With two shopping centres and numerous other popular and unique retail destinations, you can spend all weekend and not see the same old, same old.  A perfect girls day out is meeting a friend downtown to browse the fabulous fashion and home furnishing stores, then enjoy a leisurely lunch at one of the quaint outdoor cafes and take a walk along the pier and promenade all the way to the canal and lift bridge and finish off the day with a gelato …heaven!

Best Weekends


Going to a spa is an indulgence that many of us don’t treat ourselves to so it is a perfect outing for a girls getaway whether for a special occasion (wedding, post-baby, birthday) or just because.  Being pampered, having a relaxing massage, enjoying a glass of wine or specialty tea, and chatting with your BFF is one of those small luxuries that help reduce stress and rejuvenate you.  In Burlington we have some wonderful day spas and other services that you can enjoy including:

Best Weekends – anytime!

Fitness Fanatics

If you like to be active while getting away from it all, being situated along the waterfront and minutes from the escarpment means Burlington has many active choices.  In spring/summer the girls can enjoy swimming, paddling, walking, hikingcycling at the waterfront, in local parks or conservation areas.  In cooler weather, there are indoor options for fitness, sports of all sorts, climbing etc.  Why not stay in a local hotel and cycle or hike and then enjoy a massage?  Here are a few of the more unique opportunities… call us for more ideas or check the website:

Stay When You Getaway

If you want to get the full girls getaway experience you have to pack an overnight bag and actually get-away!  You can do the slumber party thing and talk into the night over a glass of wine and indulge in some treats bought along the way. Stay at your choice of accommodations at local hotels.

Camping (seasonal) – okay you may not want to rough it but you could try a yurt at Bronte Creek Provincial Park or cabin at KOA which is more glamping than camping!

Enjoy your getaway.
