Having stopped briefly in Burlington on a day trip while a student, I was glad to get to spend a bit more time there on the way for a visit Canada much later. Burlington is Vermont’s biggest town but very small by comparison to most others. Sitting right on Lake Champlain, it has a nice river front, pedestrian market walk, and several old buildings around the town. (2012)

One of Burlington’s noted features is the Church Street Marketplace, a long stretch of city streets that has been blocked off as a pedestrian market mall where one can stroll past numerous shops and cafes.

Heading out of Burlington towards the town of Waterbury, you can find the factory of famous Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream where all their crazy flavors start.
