We walked through the whole place in less than an hour. It has a nice small town appeal. there is a "mall" that has a Macy's but most of the shops close early so we didn't get to see much, just look at the windows.

We've all been to shopping streets. Restaurants, outposts of mall stores, street vendors, street entertainers. Church Street is right on a very thin line of maintaining its heritage versus becoming just another street. As of now it toes this line successfully and is an absolute pleasure. But we all know where this could head in the future (see Harvard Square... More

The Church Street Marketplace is the main shopping street in charming downtown Burlington, Vermont. Outdoor dining at many of the restaurants that line this street. Many stores including an indoor mall with Macys, Gap, Victoria Secret, JJill, Chicos and many other fashion brands. Very recommended to anyone coming to this area.

The revitalization of the downtown area is beautiful. I was thrilled to see the old buildings occupied by new and thriving businesses. There are some great restaurants to enjoy. I was a bit surprised to see how many of the shops close at 6pm. As a business traveler I wasn't able to enjoy many of them. The parking can be... More

The street itself has lots of interesting shops and places to eat. You'll either like it or you won't, no middle ground. Quite different on the street as there are mixtures of cultures from left over hippies to eco warriors to corporate money to new age and homeless. Everyone all seemed to get on and it didn't feel unsafe. The... More

Beautiful area to walk in. They have all kinds of unique shops, restaurants, and the mall is right in the center of it. Would recommend this as a day trip to anyone staying in the area.

Interesting place. It has a European feeling to it. Reminded us of some towns in England and France but it was disappointing to see all the down and outs on the street. It didn't add charm or color, it just made it feel unsafe and uncomfortable which is a shame because I bet this could be a really fun, artsy... More

Beggars in the street. People that are obviously "disturbed" asking for money, One young lady was to put it delicately selling her wares to any interested man. SHAME on the city of Burlington for allowing what is obviously a very nice attraction to be taken over by lowlifes. Not someplace for me spend my money.

Burlington Vermont is one of the nicest small cities you can visit. It is home to several colleges (among them University of Vermont and the smaller Champlain College) and sits on a hill above Lake Champlain. The views from town over the lake toward the Adirondack mountains. Burlington is also home to the 4 block long pedestrian marketplace known as... More

What a beautiful and peaceful place to shop and eat. The mural in Leahy Way at Church Street Marketplace is one of the nicest historical murals I have ever seen. It was surprisingly refreshing to see this beautiful area closed to trafic.
