While I have been here before, it, like many downtowns, has changed since our last visit, but unlike most downtowns it has GROWN. Man there is so much to see and do here, and as of this coming Monday, there will be NO more smoking allowed in the downtown area (Church street). This whole area has a ton of shops,... More

Some of my favorite stores were gone. There are still some great ones but a lot fewer. I used to spend the whole day shopping there. This time I was done in 1 hour.

After having recently visited Burlington for business on more than one occasion I've concluded (along with several coworkers) the Church Street Marketplace has become downtrodden and filled with homeless, young people begging for money and various other issues . Apparently its really become a problem. Llbean recently opened a new store so hopefully the area will become revitalized... It really... More

I went to Church Street not long after moving here. The parking garage stair cases are full of urine. There is a significant amount of loitering in the area and this is obviously a great place to pee. But what made the trip intolerable was the 'gentleman' actually relieving himself (pooping) in the alley to the parking garage. I turned... More

No matter if you are looking for sport gear, new shoes or a book that you can then bring to the park, you will find what you. Plus, get a bowl of fresh air as well as a lot of heart-warming food to choose from :)

No matter the weather, there is something for everyone here. Summer has the street vendors and musicians, as well as numerous sidewalk cafes. Winter features a beautiful display of holiday lights. The selection of stores and restaurants is amazing. I've been several times and still have not gone to all of them!!! Also, as an added bonus, on Saturdays during... More

Don't miss the Marketplace on your first visit to Burl. Pedestrian only shopping and dining and people watching in the open air. Shops and eateries for all wallets and tastes. Sidewalk dining in warm weather. Short walk to the waterfront park and views of the harbor on Lake Champlain with spectacular sunsets over the high peaks of the Adirondacks beyond.

I really liked the Church Street Marketplace. I went on a Friday night to check out the shops and restaurants. I then returned the following day to check out the farmer's market. There were lots of nice shops with everything from Gap and Ben & Jerry's to tiny, independent bookstores and clothing stores. There were two street performers playing instruments... More

We just returned from an Open House trip to UVM and Burlington. The tour guide at UVM recommended Church Street to our group, and we walked there from the Hotel Vermont. What a great spot in the center of Burlington! 3 or 4 blocks have been turned into a pedestrian-only walk street -- lined with fun restaurants and nice shops.... More
