Vermont’s largest city would be a small city in most other states, but Burlington’s size is one of its charms. With the University of Vermont (UVM) swelling the city by 13, 400 students, and a vibrant cultural and social life, Burlington has a spirited, youthful character. And when it comes to nightlife, this is Vermont’s epicenter.
The city’s location adds to its appeal. Perched on the shore of Lake Champlain, Burlington is less than an hour’s drive from Stowe and other Green Mountain towns. In fact, the city can be used as a base for exploring much of northwestern Vermont, where each season brings its own festivals and events.
