Last night marked the Kickoff for the Sound of Music, Burlington's free music festival. I watched the fireworks show from by balcony with the lake as the backdrop. This got me thinking about how great it is living Downtown Burlington, and how I wanted to share it in my blog.
I am fortunate to have recently relocated to the Downtown Burlington area, and am loving every bit of it. I have lived in many places through out North America and never have I lived in a city full of so many friendly people. People always say hi while I am walking my dog and stop to chat when Ali will let them.
There are so many cool little shops and restaurants in the Downtown area that I love already and more that I can't wait to try! Some places even introduce themselves when you walk in which very rarely happens anymore, it really makes you feel good and part of a caring community.
If your looking to move to a lakeside city that has it all I would definately recomend Burlington. If you want to be close to the lake the Downtown area is where its at. Schools, Churches, shops, restaurants and the water are all within walking distance. There is something for every demographic here, if you are a first time homebuyer we have great starter houses, if your a family looking for a home with a quiet backyard we have that too, empty nesters we have smaller homes and condos right by the lake if your downsizing these condos have all the amenities you will ever want or need.
As I am writing this the snowbirds planes just flew over my balcony...so awesome!!
Come spend the day at any of the Events/festivals happening here in Burlington and I am sure you will see what I am talking about.
