Weekend Itineraries: Family Friendly

Burlington weekend itinery

May 22, 2024


Many of Burlington’s 18 hotels have pools, so jump into your weekend feet first. Kick it old school with a game of glow-in-the-dark bowling at Burlington Bowl, then get a Taste of Burlington at any of the more than 400 restaurants in the city, including international, regional and local fare.  


Start the day shopping for locally grown fresh produce and baked goods at the Burlington Centre Lions Farmers Market open May to October. In the Winter borrow skates at the Rotary Centennial Pond ice rink in Spencer Smith Park with a lakeside view. In the summer, enjoy the splash pad and playground. Visit the free Art Gallery of Burlington or pre-book a family tour at Ireland House for some interactive learning. Wind down the day the Nostalgia Games Café playing board games together.  


Get moving with a hike on the boardwalk around Crawford Lake Conservation’s world-renowned meromitic lake and learn about species at risk on the Hide and Seek Trail or First Nations history at the longhouse. Visit the Tourism Burlington website events listing to see what else is on when you’re here. Get a dozen of the unique made-to-order flavours at Duck Donuts for the trip home.
