About Burlington, VT


About Burlington - "The Queen City"


Known as the "Queen City", Burlington is the largest city in Vermont. But don't let that distinction fool you, Burlington still retains its small-town vibe and plenty of charm. Resting along the shores of Lake Champlain, Burlington is home to a bit less than 50,000 residents.

Residents and visitors alike get to enjoy the city's many brewpubs, cafes, art studios, and craft stores. The Church Street Marketplace is especially popular, being the busiest pedestrian strip in town. Burlington's market is home to as many as one hundred different vendors. These vendors offer fresh farm produce, dairy products, and other organic, sustainable foods. These farms also follow strict GMO labeling laws, so you'll always know what you are buying.

Vermont is actually America's healthiest state according to the United Health Foundation. The state has held this distinction for the last four years. Besides all the healthy food options, the plethora of outdoor hiking and activity spaces also help people stay in shape.

Many of these scenic areas can be found in the "Green Mountains", for which the state is nick-named. As green as these mountains truly are, they truly light up come autumn. Reds, oranges, yellows, browns and more. Fall Foliage Festivals are common and are enjoyable for visitors and locals alike. Come winter time, the mountains are often covered in snow. There are many mountains that are great for skiing and other winter activities. There is the aptly named Mount Snow, as well as Stratton, Killington, Sugarbush, Stowe and many more.

If anything is more common than beautiful mountains, it might be the covered bridges. There are over a hundred of them in Vermont. The picturesque bridges themselves make for good photo opportunities. It's all the better when they set against the backdrop of the mountains. The Windsor-Cornish bridge is definitely worth a visit and drive, being the largest covered single span bridge in America. Another great drive is down the scenic Route 30, which will take you through several covered bridges and through the beautiful countryside.

Burlington is one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the United States. In fact, the city was the first in America to generate all of its energy for residential use from sustainable sources. Given the rapid growth in green technology, green products, and green culture, the "Green Mountains" aren't the only thing that's green in Vermont.
