The city of Burlington has its own unique allure in Vermont, particularly during the summer, offering a delightful blend of natural beauty, cultural attractions, and mouthwatering culinary experiences. Winters can be downright frigid here, which is why when summer arrives, everybody flocks to the downtown streets, drawn to the city’s picturesque waterfront and the hustle and bustle of Church Street.
Catch a game of baseball at Centennial Field, home of the Vermont Lake Monsters (vermontlakemonsters.com), or indulge in a captivating performance at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts (www.flynnvt.org). For a quick and comprehensive tour of the city, hop on a Burlington Brew Tours (www.citybrewtours.com/burlington) bus and explore the local craft beer scene or embark on a relaxing harbor cruise to beat the summer heat.
Burlington’s culinary scene is also not to be missed, with a selection of farm-to-table restaurants that present and enhance the food from local farmers and other providers.
