Welcome to Burlington
Burlington's walkable downtown, bike paths, farmers market, fabulous food coop, and proximity to nature earn it accolades as one of America's greenest and most livable cities. The city's ongoing Great Streets Initiative (www.greatstreetsbtv.com) aims to sustain that momentum, with wider sidewalks, enhanced green spaces and reduced pollution.
Burlington makes an attractive base for exploring the rest of northwestern Vermont. Two of Vermont's crown jewels, Shelburne Farms and the Shelburne Museum, lie just 15 minutes south, while Stowe and the Green Mountains are within an hour's drive.
