Burlington Vermont enjoys this fantastic waterfront made for people doing all kinds of wonderful activities. Biking, walking, watching the lake, dining, going on a sightseeing boat, renting a sailboat, sauntering, or buying real maple ice-cream (or other flavors). (inhale) and a kateboard park (a really really good one) (see actual photo) or going to one of many live events that... More

Stopped on a cold day so couldn't walk around much because of the cold. Had a nice view of the lake as the sunset though! I am sure it's gorgeous during the summer and a great place for walking.

Vibrant restaurant with great location. Reservations a must unless willing to wait for a bar seat. Decor is modern repurposed factory with high ceilings, creative lighting, well decorated and cozy seating. Beautiful view of the Winooski River from almost every seat. While waiting for seating on a comfy couch a bar tender/waiter took our drink orders. Several local beers on... More

I absolutely love the location and the lake. But it is OVERRUN with college students and tourists at times when most folks can go. During the middle of a weekday, or in the off season when everybody from Montreal and Mass have either gone home or are skiing, this is a magical place. Stroll the boardwalk, learn more about Lake...

We drove over from the coast just to visit Burlington and see Lake Champlain. We got there right at sunset which was great timing. I would recommend this as a must see location at sunset.

A beautiful fall day. Sharing a lovely stroll along Lake Champlain with so many options to explore. Go on a boat tour, see the aquarium, sit by the water for snacks, dinner or eat a meal. The view of Lake Champlain is beautiful and sunset is amazing. 😊

The waterfront park is very special as it is a quiet place right on lake Champlain and has a magnificent view of the adirondack mts. People enjoy this harborside park in all seasons and the view is spectacular. It's fun to watch the boats if the lake is not frozen.

It is just so beautiful! If you go to Vermont, you must see the sunset by lake Champlain. It is the perfect place for a walk, for playing sports, having a picnic, or even just sitting down and relaxing.

It is a nice waterfront. Too bad we came in early November because it was cold and very windy. I saw some runners, dog walkers and bicyclist during my visit. I can see this place being a nice park during the summer.

Sunset not only brought a memorable scene across the lake but also provided excellent people-watching while walking about. Almost the best part of my visit to Burlington.
