This 5-block open air pedestrian mall is lined with shops and restaurants of all types, attracting locals and out-of-towners alike. Unfortunately, you can't walk 10 feet without inhaling copious clouds of second-hand smoke, thanks to the numerous people who like to hang out and smoke at one of the few public places left in Vermont where smoking isn't banned.

Though it was very clod while we were there, we enjoyed walking down the church street shopping district (pedestrians only). There is also a medium sized indoor mall with a Macy's.

We visited the Church Street Marketplace on our visit to Burlington. Wow.....What fun and great shopping. We went back the second day. So many great shops to browse, and wonderful restaurants, too. The Winter Lights were still up, and they are so pretty at night. We can't wait to go back.

During the past few decades, many American cities and towns shopping areas became shabby with empty store fronts and a place for derelicts to inhabit when all the shopping malls came into popularity. Fortunately Burlington Fathers did some forward thinking and turned their downtown into a beautiful Marketplace. It was well planned, right down to addressing parking issues by constructing... More

We visited Burlington in the holidays and it was very nice. This beautiful university town is full of good restaurants that encourages local producers. Church Street is a beautiful pedestrian street that counts many boutiques, cafes and restaurants. I will definitely go back.

There seemed to be plenty of places to park and we always found at least one place to go. There are lots of shops, bars, pubs, food, coffee, etc. The lights at night were very cute and it is very central to lots of other restaurants and shops to visit.

The last time that I had time to spend on Church Street was in August, 2013. The was a Festival of Fools going on with jokers and jugglers on every corner. There was some crazy band dressed as sea creatures playing on one stage and many restaurants and bars had live entertainment. The festival gave a fun and festive downtown... More

Church street is a place that is fun to walk up and down with a cup of coffee or cocoa from a local shop. Window shop, or pop into a store for a browse. There is a great selection of Vermont-crafted products for home or as great gifts. The variety of restaurants and eateries are many and very satisfying. Stop... More

Nothing like taking a walk down Church Street, regardless of the season, people watching, eating delicious food and getting some shopping done. There are some magical boutiques on the street, side streets to explore, coffee shops plenty, and the lake right nearby!

Burlington's CHurch Street Marketplace is a wonderful place to visit and walk. In warm weather, the many fine restaurants have outdoor seating. There are street musicians and performers, as well as food carts of various types. The city underground mall abuts the walkway and there is a 2-hour free parking garage. Even in winter, it is worth walking down CHurch... More
