Time to Play

No visit to Vermont should be all business. Bring your family for a mini-vacation. You’ll find a rich variety of fun things to do and places to see.

A visit to the area is not complete without spending time in Vermont’s most populous city. Burlington boasts many lake and mountain views and an award-winning, outdoor downtown shopping mall, the Church Street Marketplace. The rejuvenated waterfront features a park, skateboard park, and bike paths; art galleries, shops, a theater, and restaurants; and a boathouse and mooring area.

The 90-mile trip to Montreal from Burlington takes a pleasant hour and a half. It’s a little more than three hours for the 225 miles to Boston. At 293 miles, New York City is over five hours away.

The city’s active arts and entertainment scene is enlivened by the large population at the five area colleges.

Several other engaging towns and cities are within an hour’s drive of Burlington — Middlebury, St. Albans, Montpelier, and Barre — each worthy of a visit. Farmers’ markets can be found across the state.
