Burlington Holidays Overview


Burlington is Vermont's largest city and is situated by Lake Champlain. It is an important commercial centre and college town known for its intimate atmosphere, free thinking and liberal environment. The best time to visit the city is in fall when Burlington streets are adorned in bright colours.

Many of the city's historic sites and buildings are listed on the National Register and it has an impressive 17 different historic districts. Downtown Burlington is home to the well-known Church Street Marketplace. The area also has a diverse mix of restaurants and shops.

The Lower Main neighbourhood of Burlington is funky and quirky, boasting some of the city's best establishments. Throughout the neighbourhood are local stores like Little Pair, The Green Life and Anjou selling quirky collectibles and antiques and locally made house wares.

Along Lake Champlain's shore is the Burlington waterfront with biking and walking paths and swings. The ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Centre is located in the state's first ever Certified Green Building along the waterfront. The centre is home to more than 70 species of reptiles, invertebrates, amphibians and fish.

Burlington organizes dragon boat races each year on the lake for charity. Since 1982, the city has also celebrated New Year's with a First Night celebration. The House of LeMay, the city's drag troupe, performs many shows each year and also hosts an annual event for charity.

Burlington is located close to Stowe as well as various other towns in the Green Mountains, making it a base for visiting north-western Vermont.
