Vibrant, historic yet modern and hip. Burlington is what you seek in a destination, with a walkable downtown and lots of choices for recreation, shopping or browsing, just minutes from Vermont’s lake and mountain regions.
If your passion is the outdoors, head for the waterfront, where you can bike, kayak, take a cruise and learn about the Lake. Vermont’s Champlain Islands are just north of Burlington and yet a world away. Hugging the shores of Lake Champlain, the Islands stretch between the Burlington area and the Canadian border. With 200 miles of shoreline to explore and enjoy, the Islands are a great place to vacation in summer, fall and even winter!
Enjoy the urban nightlife at world-class restaurants, theaters, bars, and brewpubs. Want to taste the local delicacies? Explore the wineries, chocolate manufacturers, breweries and cheesemakers or shop til you drop at the Church Street Marketplace.
