The Burlington area has a lot to offer visitors. The downtown marketplace features great shopping and many fine restaurants. The waterfront, highlighted by its striking Community Boathouse, hosts food and music festivals and provides access to boat rentals, tour boats, and a lake-side bike path.
Burlington is home to the University of Vermont and Champlain College. In addition, many of Vermont’s most popular attractions are just a short drive away, including Stowe, Shelburne Museum, Shelburne Farms, and Ben and Jerry’s Factory. There are a wide variety of recreational activities and sporting events available on Lake Champlain and in the nearby Green Mountains.
