Plan An Easy Peasy Staycation in Burlington

If you’re looking for something great to do locally, don’t count out how amazing a staycation in Burlington can be!

We booked a promotion through the Hamilton Halton Brant tourism board. They want you to fall in love with the heart of Ontario this fall, and to help you accomplish that, they’ve put together getaway packages for families, couples, girlfriends and more! We were itching for a night away so we took full advantage of the one-night family stay at the Holiday Inn Burlington. We didn’t even have to leave town to have a great time!

When we booked our one-night staycation in Burlington at the Holiday Inn, it included a $50 Visa gift card as part of the promotion. I knew we would use it towards dinner out because not cooking dinner is my idea of a vacation!

We checked in easily right after school because my kids just couldn’t wait to see their overnight accommodations. The Holiday Inn Burlington didn’t disappoint. The room was bright and clean, and the beds were perfect for jumping on – or so I was told!

Can you see those jump marks? It was the first thing she did!

Being that it was Halloween weekend, we planned a not-too-scary movie night complete with movie theatre snacks and drinks. But first – we had to swim. We booked a private 1-hour swim in the large hotel pool and my girls felt like VIPs.

Stay Local, Dine Local

With our complimentary $50 Visa gift card, we ordered dinner from Jack Astors. They have a great family dinner deal for $40 that we’ve ordered more than a couple of times. My kids love their chicken fingers! The Visa gift card sealed this great deal because when I don’t have to cook, I’m very happy! Mom got a vacation, too! Other family-friendly restaurants in the area include Boston Pizza, Montana’s Familia Fine Foods, Sotiris, Swiss Chalet and Kelsey’s.

The Piece Du Resistance!

At 9 o’clock, the concierge tapped on our door to deliver milk and cookies! It was the perfect touch and my kids loved it. The cookies were massive, oh so fresh and tasty, too! When we checked in to our staycation in Burlington we were asked what time we’d like our bedtime snack delivered. It was included in the family package.
