Burlington
Vermont's largest and perhaps most cosmopolitan city, Burlington beckons with the perfect blend of old New England charm, arts, culture and nature. Located on the shores of Lake Champlain, between the Adirondack and Green Mountains, Burlington is one of those places you can't help but fall in love with. During spring and summer, the streets come alive with festivals and outdoor concerts. The picnic benches, playground and bike paths of Leddy Park are filled with warm-weather revellers, and opportunities to swim, fish or just relax on the beach abound. In autumn, the Burlington Bike Path is bustling with locals and tourists who come to view the vibrant autumn colours. In winter, lace up your ice skates and head to... more Vermont's largest and perhaps most cosmopolitan city, Burlington beckons with the perfect blend of old New England charm, arts, culture and nature. Located on the shores of Lake Champlain, between the Adirondack and Green Mountains, Burlington is one of those places you can't help but fall in love with. During spring and summer, the streets come alive with festivals and outdoor concerts. The picnic benches, playground and bike paths of Leddy Park are filled with warm-weather revellers, and opportunities to swim, fish or just relax on the beach abound. In autumn, the Burlington Bike Path is bustling with locals and tourists who come to view the vibrant autumn colours. In winter, lace up your ice skates and head to the Paquette Arena or grab your skis and head to any of the nearby resorts. Church Street Marketplace, with its early-1900s architecture, great restaurants, live entertainment, one-of-a-kind shops and well-known stores, is the focal point of the city centre. Any time of year is a good time for chocolate: be sure to stop by Lake Champlain Chocolates for a tour and taste. less
