What better way to write about Burlington than to write about its historical society. The group has been active since it restarted in 1960 and is an affiliation of the Ontario Historical Society. The Society founded with 5 objectives; hold a monthly meeting; to compile, and keep historical archives; share and work with group interested in historical values and lastly, create awareness, outreach opportunity and public interest in the local history.
But, have you heard of it? The Taste of Burlington? Most Burlingtonion wouldn’t have. I was one of them. What is the Taste of Burlington you say? In 2008, Tourism Burlington, Aldershot BIA and Burlington Downtown organized the event with the participation of the local restaurants to promote dining experiences in Burlington.

For as low as $15, you get a 3-set course of scrumptious lunch or $35 for prix-fixe dinner options. The course typically includes an appetizer, entrée, and dessert.
