What to do in Burlington for Fun!
Winter is all about winter fun! This past weekend brought snow and fun for families all around Burlington. Some chose to hit the hills at Lowville for a little fun in the snow. Many chose to ski or tube at Glen Eden. There is lots to do, so get out there.
Be sure to visit the beautiful and blooming Mediterranean Garden at Royal Botanical Gardens. The Glass Under Glass Exhibit is on until February 27th.
