Several years ago I went to college in Burlington. The city's setting on beautiful Lake Champlain enhances life there in a big way. Burlington is a green city that meets environmental and ecological issues with innovative ideas. Burlington has encouraged reuse and recycling for decades.
Many community events and attractions take place on the lake shore. Sailboats dot Lake Champlain in summer. Ferry boats make regular crossings all year around. A well used, meandering bike path runs through the city of Burlington. Church Street's pedestrian mall is home to a variety of restaurants and boutiques. An underground mall, accessible from Church Street, has additional restaurants and shopping. The atmosphere invites visitors and locals to linger over a cup of Green Mountain coffee or a Ben and Jerry's ice cream cone.
Burlington is a vital, vibrant city. Events like the Chew-Chew Festival fill the calendar. The Chew-Chew festival is an annual celebration of local food and beverages that the entire community enjoys. Summer brings beach days. Fall is a glorious riot of color. Winter can be brutally cold and snowy. Spring arrives sometime in April with the red-winged blackbirds. In Burlington, you enjoy the best of all seasons.
Accept Burlington's invitation to vist or live there and savor all the city has to offer.
