Burlington is a city in the northwest of the US state of Vermont, 95 miles south of Montreal in Canada, on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain. As Vermont’s largest, it is known as Vermont’s Queen City.
Burlington is also a bustling college town, home to the University of Vermont. It’s a city that has it all: scenic beauty, sophisticated dining, shopping, entertainment and a host of outdoor activities. From downtown Burlington you can see the Green mountains on one side and beautiful lake Champlain on the other. Three bridges over the lake, as well as three ferry boats, connect Vermont to New York.
For more inspiration, suffice to say Burlington has a thriving craft beer scene. Its popular guided brew tours include tasting up to 15 locally produced beers and a meal at a local restaurant.
Ben & Jerry’s ice cream had its origins in Burlington when best friends Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield converted a petrol station into an ice cream shop. And former US presidential candidate senator Bernie Sanders was Burlington’s 37th mayor in the 1980s.
Hotels in Burlington range between traditional ones and hotel resorts, chic inns and bed and breakfasts to convenient motels and apartment hotels.
Many of the well-known and reliable hotel brands are available downtown – Hilton, Sheraton, Marriott and Holiday Inn. Burlington hotels away from the centre may offer better rates, for example in Shelburne or Colchester. Bed and breakfasts are spread out over a wider area, such as Vergennes by the lake, Stowe, near Mount Mansfield, and South Hero, on the lake Champlain island chain.
The best time to visit Burlington is from May to September when many festivals are on and the city is bursting with greenery. Between April and November, there are fewer tourists and hotel rates are reduced. Hotel prices peak from December to March, when skiers and snowboarders arrive, aiming for the nearby slopes.
The more reputable hotels in Burlington have 24-hour service, a business centre, a gym and a pool, and modern rooms fitted with a fridge, TV, air conditioner, hairdryer and a variety of toiletries. The Hilton Burlington, for instance, has rooms and a fitness centre with lake and mountain views, an indoor pool, a spa tub and a free shuttle service to the airport.
For an outdoors-centred stay, there are resort hotels in Stowe, with babysitting services, a golf course and fitness classes onsite, and a multitude of activities nearby, including hiking and biking, sailing and rafting, cross-country and downhill skiing, ice skating and even skydiving.
Bed and breakfasts have fewer rooms and a non-smoking policy but are generally cheaper than a hotel, with breakfast-inclusive rates. Rooms come with a full set of modern amenities and free Wi-Fi.
If you’re travelling with family or friends, self-catering apartment hotels may be a handy alternative as long as you don’t mind arranging your own meals. Apartment hotels come with air-conditioned rooms, a fully equipped kitchen, laundry facilities and free Wi-Fi. Facilities differ from place to place. The Residence Inn by Marriott Colchester, for instance, has an indoor pool, a business centre, free newspapers in the lobby, daily housekeeping and free breakfast.
Lake Champlain, stretching 120 miles from New York to Quebec, is a hub of water activities. You can paddle, explore its rocky shoreline or go sailing. The Community Sailing Centre can set you up with a sailboat, kayak, canoe or paddle board. Sightseeing and dinner cruises are also available.
Legend has it the lake has its own Loch Ness monster, called Champ, living in the depths of its waters. You can always hope to spot it!
In the Waterfront neighbourhood by the lake, there is a marine-focused children’s museum, the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center. And for adults, Lake Champlain Maritime Museum 30 miles south, in Vergennes, focuses on the local maritime history and archaeology.
Keen hikers visiting in the summer or autumn should head towards the Green Mountains. Mount Mansfield, so named because its summit ridge resembles the profile of a human face, is Vermont’s highest mountain at 4,393 feet. All hikes can be done in a day, the classic one being the scenic Sunset Ridge Trail, just under three and a half miles. It is an hour’s car journey and the best seasons for hiking are between May and October.
The Shelburne Museum, eight miles south of downtown Burlington, has exhibits covering American folk art, quilts, toys, carriages, decoys and more housed in 39 buildings spread over 45 beautifully landscaped acres. It also features a collection of impressionist paintings by Degas, Cassatt, Manet and Monet.
In Huntington, 19 miles southeast, a must-visit is the Birds of Vermont Museum, where natural history meets art. It is a non-profit organisation aimed at educating the public on the role of birds in the earth’s ecosystem. It displays over 500 bird woodcarvings created by a Vermont naturalist, and is surrounded by a bird sanctuary.
Also in Huntington is the Green Mountain Audubon Center, which holds diverse wildlife populations, including 100 species of birds, living in 225 acres of varying habitats, and five miles of trails through which to discover them.
