I can’t believe it’s been nearly a year since I drove my family up to Burlington, ON. For many years, I driven past the amazingly-cultural city on my way to visit my brother in Toronto and never stopped. A couple of years ago that changed when I was asked to visit and write about my travels.
Last year, I took the fam during the heart of the winter and we, once again, had a ball. On our last day, we took a break from the cold and headed to Royal Botanical Gardens to check out its Frogs: A chorus of colours exhibit.
This blue Poison Dart Frog really caught my eye. Okay, frogs are super cute, but this little guy is stunning. Scientists have studied the skin of these frogs for potential medicinal usage and Rainforest native inhabitants have used the poison on the tips of their hunting blow darts.
This year RBG is hosting Reptile Rondezvous and it begins this Sunday.
Disclosure: I was hosted by Visit Burlington and received complimentary admission to the RBG. All opinions are my own.
