Burlington, VT: Mountains, Water Views and Big City Amenities

Article by Eric H. Photo by Skye Chalmers from Vermont Vacation
Someone from up above blessed Burlington, VT., with one of the greatest city locations in New England. Beautifully situated on Lake Champlain with stunning views of the New York State Adirondack Mountains, this very liberal "college" town also features enough attractions and events to create a great urban vacation.

Home of the University of Vermont, Champlain College, Community College of Vermont and Burlington College, Burlington comes across as a what some call a mini-San Francisco with it hilly streets leading to the shores of Lake Champlain. Church Street Marketplace makes the downtown special with its colorful, four-block pedestrian area of shops, restaurants, bars, cafe, galleries, shops and street vendors, entertainers and festivals. The lakefront area is another jewel with scenic walking and biking areas, dining, a park, the stunning Burlington Community Boathouse, sailing charters, and a wonderful seasonal ferry ride to Port Kent, NY. The sunsets are simply amazing!

You really get the best of both worlds in Burlington: the rest and relaxation around the lakefront and the city life of the downtown. The result is a highly recommended New England travel destination.
