Take It Outside

Royal Botanical Gardens is home to 27 km of nature trails, 2,400 acres of nature sanctuaries and over 2,300 species of plants. Download the self-guided, Royal Botanical Gardens tour to your smartphone (or print it out before you leave) for a scenic wander through Hendrie Park and the Rock Garden.

Do Something Unexpected

Architecture and design fans will have fun getting to know Burlington’s historic side with this self-guided Walking Tour of Heritage Burlington. You’ll set out from Art Gallery of Burlington and make your way through this historic part of Burlington’s downtown learning about the heritage homes and buildings here.

Stock The Trunk With Fall Flavours

Stonehaven Farms, just north of Burlington, is the perfect place to pick your fall pumpkins. While you’re there, be sure to try your luck navigating the giant corn maze. Burlington Centre Lions Farmer’s Market and Centro Market’s Sunday Farmer’s Market are also terrific destinations for sourcing the season’s freshest produce.

Centro Market
