While it's utterly charming with a sprinkle of snow, Stowe isn't just for winter. Just 40 minutes from Burlington, other seasons provide spectacular panoramas of tree-covered slopes ablaze with red, gold, and orange foliage, rivers, and watering holes. Stowe also offers shops, restaurants, galleries, yoga classes, and horseback riding; and sometimes the latter two are combined.
Burlington is for the outdoorsy, and many of its attractions are, well, outdoors. This is the kind of place you can ski 5 resorts in 5 days, all in snow-covered New England villages that make you feel like you've walked into postcard. Or, in warmer months, go hiking the Long Trail, apple picking, or camping on the Lake Champlain islands.
Burlington is an outdoor lover's dream. Built on a steep hill rising from the shores of Lake Champlain and overlooking both lake and mountains, Vermont's largest city combines a small-town, eco-friendly, countryside feel with a thriving food and arts culture. You walk the streets to the sound of wind and waves along the shoreline, and to the beat of other strollers in Burlington's pedestrian-only centre.
