Watch a movie

If you feel like venturing out to catch a new movie or two, it might be a good idea to check to see what movies pique your interest. Residents can catch the latest blockbuster films at SilverCity Burlington Cinemas, Brant St. and N. Service Rd., which will be open on Christmas Day.

Check out the holiday decor

Some Burlington residents go all out when it comes to Christmas decoration, and, since most start to look at taking them down, Christmas Day is one of the last to actually see the displays. Or you can head down to Spencer Smith Park after dark for the annual Festival of Lights display.

Go for a hike

What better way to enjoy the outdoors in Burlington than by taking a late-December hike? There are plenty of great trails in the city, including Kerncliff Park, Mount Nemo Conservation Area. For more ideas, visit here.

Grab a bite 

Considering Christmas Day is one of the few days of the year when most businesses are closed, most people will have the day off work, and it’s the perfect opportunity to just relax and enjoy spending some quality family time together.

Residents can do this by checking out a local restaurant (call ahead to be sure it’s open) or taking a stroll through downtown Burlington to take some family photos.
