I have been to Burlington numerous times and always make sure to wander Church St. Great shopping, even if only passing the windows, and a ton of restaurants. This is the heart of Burlington!

This pedestrian street that runs through the middle of town is a nice place to stroll. There are a few little gems along the way - local boutiques, cafes and art galleries - but there are also a lot of chain stores that you can find anywhere. Do check out the BCA Art Gallery. Great exhibits!

The Church street Marketplace is, by design, a place for people. Lots of shops, interesting stores, places to eat formal or informal, drink coffee, stroll, sit, hang, maybe watch professional street theater, and yes, this is the home of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream- so you can eat ice-cream. Burlington Vermont, for whatever reason had the vision, years ago, to... More

Went to visit friends and our first stop was church street. What a gorgeous spot! We went at night and the whole street was lit up beautifully with white lights. Great place to grab a coffee, shop for cool souvenirs, eat a great meal or do some bar hopping (we did a little of all :) ). Oh ya and... More

Lots of shops, especially outdoors sports shops, abound. Tons of restaurants, offering local foods. The variety of places to eat was impressive in a town this size. The about 4 block shopping area is pedestrian only, and with the cobbled stone streets makes it an idyllic place as well in which to shop and eat.

It was beautiful, fun and enjoyable to walk on that street and shop in the stores. Not a lot of people, beautiful architectures and delicious restaurants.

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
