Burlington • Vermont
Burlington is home to gorgeous sunsets over Lake Champlain, unique pubs and restaurants, breweries, three colleges and one university: University of Vermont and Champlain College to name a couple. The Ben & Jerry’s Factory is a sweet place to tour, especially because you can visit the flavor graveyard afterwards and see the retired flavors that didn’t quite make the cut. Take a stroll down Church Street and check out the outdoor shopping, restaurants, and live events.
Vermont is a picturesque state, flaunting its snow-capped mountain landscape in the winter, and rolling green hills in the summer. Simply put, Vermont is an ideal long-weekend escape, yearround, especially when the fall foliage takes full effect.
One of the largest natural lakes in the United States is Lake Champlain. Situated between New York, Vermont, and Canada, the lake offers various water sport activities, fishing and boating excursions, and plenty of food & drink stops within the area.
It's easy to become familiar with the quaint town of Burlington. Church Street Marketplace is a pedestrianized, open-air mall lined with over 100 places to shop, dine, and explore. There are several extraordinary restaurants within walking distance serving local delicacies and craft beer.
The residents of Burlington, or "Burlingtonians" highly commend shopping local and shopping small yearround. This quaint city is home to four-season activities, beautiful historic buildings, and an eclectic arts scene.
The vibrant city of Burlington is not to be missed. With the Adirondack mountains looming in the distance over Lake Champlain, and the thrill of fulfilling your craft beer passport, Burlington, Vermont is a treasure of the Northeast.
