According to Kiki: a Burlington, Vermont To Do List
Steven and I first visited Burlington, Vermont, when our good friend was attending UVM back in 2014. We loved it so much we have gone back to visit almost every year since! It is a unique and vibrant place with awesome food, music, beer, scenery, and people! Plus it's a pretty drive up 89. If you are planning a trip to this adorable New England city, I have narrowed down my favorite breweries, restaurants, and activities for you! But first, let's talk about where you are going to stay.
Get an Airbnb that is within walking distance to Church Street.
If you want to splurge on a hotel right in town, even better. We stayed at an adorable Airbnb that had everything we needed and the price and location were right. We rented bikes so it was even quicker to get to Church Street and the water front. Here's a link to where we stayed:
It was decorated adorably and we loved drinking our coffee on the back porch in the morning.
As I said we rented bikes. We had a great experience at North Star Sports
which is right on Main Street. They gave us everything we needed for a fair price plus directions to the bike path! This photo isn't the best quality but we are clearly fired up to be bike people.
Then it was off to Causeway!
This was the most gorgeous bike path and almost the whole ride is alongside Lake Champlain. The whole ride is 20 miles (there and back) and I had a sore butt about it the next day. Might need to invest in some padded shorts!
When it comes to food and drink you can't go wrong! Burlington is a food and beer lovers dream. Here are some of my favs:
- Honey Road
- Butch + Babe's
- Dedalus Wine Bar (Steven ordered a whole fish there! look, it still has its eyeballs and everything!)
And of course you can't leave town without paying a visit to your good pals Ben & Jerry - everyone's favorite Vermont duo!
Of course there are tons of other restaurants to eat at, mountains to climb, and beers to try so that's why I will continue to go back every year!
