On the eastern shore of Lake Champlain just south of the Canadian border is where you'll find Burlington, Vermont. With a laidback, socially conscious ethos, the town is perhaps most famous for the University of Vermont and its popular exports — jam band Phish and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. It's also the state's most populous city with more than 42,000 residents.
On average, there are 157 sunny days per year in Burlington with particularly cold winters. Although it's a naturally beautiful destination throughout the year (the region is lush and green), a popular time to visit is during the autumn months when fall foliage is in full display with stunning leaves of gold, red and orange. Discover some of the top attractions of this historic New England town — and its nearby areas such as Waterbury, Shelburne, Cambridge, Charlotte and Stowe.
