  • Burlington Vermont enjoys this fantastic waterfront made for people doing all kinds of wonderful activities. Biking, walking, watching the lake, dining, going on a sightseeing boat, renting a sailboat...  more »
  • The target that I traced by GPS for arrival in Burlington was this: the Waterfront Park; a park located opposite the Lake Champlain. We left the car in a public parking spot and from there, our path through the city was all entirely on foot. We walked slowly through the entire length of the Park enjoying the sea breeze, the trees and of course, we sat in one of the banks suspended from swing to do that "people watching" Basic (sometimes rolled up a dog watching "too!). In the late afternoon, we were presented with a beautiful sunset! Don't miss this opportunity if you are in Burlington on a sunny day! Next to the Park, has an aquarium called Echo Vermont; I didn't get to visit him, but it seemed a very pleasant ride and interactive for those who travel with children. ** Read more about Burlington and my journey through New England in my Blog Vivajando!

  • Stopped on a cold day so couldn't walk around much because of the cold. Had a nice view of the lake as the sunset though! I am sure it's gorgeous during the summer and a great place for walking.

  • Stopped in to see if they could outfit my car with a rack and mounts for a kayak. Got everything and was able to get installation squared away on the spot in less than a hour. Very awesome service and friendly staff.
  • The views of the lake are great. The boardwalk is nice with some great seating.
  • Great place for outdoor concerts in the summer. Relatively small park for activities, but it's a great view of the lake and sunsets.
  • Great place for a casual walk in the waterfront. Lots of good boat watching in the warmer months.
  • Beautiful stretch of park right on Lake Champlain. Come here every summer and enjoy the picturesque sunsets and long walks by the water. Many summer time events to keep you busy and close to downtown Burlington. There are great swinging chairs facing the lake which are super relaxing any time of day.
