Burlington Vermont

summer edition

Are you ready to explore Vermont’s largest city with your family? Burlington, Vermont is such a special place.  Here are the best things to do for summer fun.

Bike the Burlington Greenway

The paved trail runs along the water for eight miles, from Oakledge Park in the south (pictured above) to the Winooski River in the North.

Look for Champ!

Champ is said to be a relative of the Loch Ness Monster, and hundreds of people have spotted him since the first sighting in 1819.

Take a Sunset Cruise on Lake Champlain

The Spirit of Ethan Allen departs from the Burlington Waterfront for sunset cruises on Friday and Saturday evenings through the summer.

Explore Church Street

Church Street is a pedestrian-only marketplace in downtown Burlington. It's where you go when you want a latte, a diamond necklace, a new outfit, or a burrito. 

Go to the Echo Center

Part museum, part playground — with loads of exhibits and hands-on learning opportunities for kids and adults.

Watch the Sunset from Oakledge Park

Oakledge Park is the perfect spot for families to end the day — there’s a lovely playground, tennis courts, and walking trails.
