Top 5 things we love about Plains

  • 1

    Walkability

    Walking is the new driving. In Plains you’re sure to shed a few pounds grabbing your daily coffee and groceries. But, you will possibly gain them back when you start making the great local sushi and pizza places a dining habit.

    The Burlington GO Station

    Speaking of not needing a car, you will be able to walk to catch the train, and miss out entirely on the “fun” of finding a parking spot.

    Mastermind

    It stocks only the best toys, leaving out all the crap we want to get rid of, only hours after it enters our home. You’ll also become addicted to the complimentary gift wrapping. Saves you money and your precious shower time.

    A Real Coffee Shop

    If you are one of those people who enjoys a bold flavour and the ability to sit in an establishment with wifi while you sip your morning coffee, you will be delighted that Plains has a Second Cup.

    IKEA

    It’s a thing. We all know you want to go there. Resistance is futile.
