About Living in Burlington, Ontario

Transportation

Cars are an excellent mode of transportation in this city. Many houses for sale are a reasonably short drive from the nearest highway, such as Highway 407, and it is straightforward to find a parking spot. On the other hand, the public transit network in this part of the Greater Hamilton metropolitan area is fairly poor. Nevertheless, residents can depend on the Aldershot Station, Appleby Station and Burlington Station with access to the Lakeshore West Line. The city is linked by about 20 bus lines, and most properties are close to a bus stop. Burlington is not especially well-suited for walking since few daily errands can be run without having to resort to a vehicle. Even though certain bicycling-friendly pockets can be found, the bicycle is a somewhat poor mode of transportation in Burlington as bicycling is rendered strenuous by the typically steep topography, and there are a limited number of bike lanes.

Services

A fraction of house buyers in this part of the Greater Hamilton metropolitan area may be able to purchase their groceries on foot in one of over 50 stores, while others will have to use another means of transportation. There are also a few choices for those who appreciate nearby restaurants and cafes. As far as education is concerned, daycares and primary schools are easy to reach on foot from most homes for sale in this city. In contrast, high schools are not especially abundant and thus not always within walking distance.

Character

The character of Burlington is exemplified by its slower-paced atmosphere. This part of the Greater Hamilton metropolitan area is quiet, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several louder sections, especially near the airport (ZBA), Queen Elizabeth Way, Highway 407 or one of the railway lines. Finally, there are over 100 parks nearby for residents to unwind in, making it easy to get to them.
