Burlington may be known for the phenomenal vistas of its fall foliage, but there is an abundance of reasons to visit the city year-round. Perched between the Adirondack and Green Mountains on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain, Burlington is Vermont’s largest city. Home to historic buildings, a lively arts scene, great shopping and a full roster of outdoor activities, Burlington offers hotel guests plentiful opportunities for enjoyment, no matter what the season.
Head downtown and visit the historic Church Street Marketplace, filled with beautiful fountains, restaurants, shops, and hotels. Visitors to Burlington can also take in a concert or play at the Flynn Theater, home of the Lyric Theatre Company and the Vermont Symphony Orchestra.
Nature lovers can stroll or bike along the Atlantic waterfront, or enjoy the natural beauty of lakeside parks; bicycles, rollerblades, kayaks and sailboats are all available for rent. For indoor fun, learn about Lake Champlain wildlife at the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center, or gawk at unusual works of art and anthropological artifacts at the University of Vermont’s eclectic Fleming Museum––all convenient to downtown Burlington accommodations. If you’re visiting in summer, be sure not to miss the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival, a world-renowned two-week event!
