This is THE one place you want to take in the sights when you ar in Burlington. During anytime of the year its lovely, but the summer, that just takes the cake.

Take a walk or a bike ride-rentals right on the waterfront and enjoy the the view of the lake. You will get chance to see and hear what is on the waterfront and sorrounding area. There are plenty of restaurants and there is ECHO museum.

Afternoon on the lakefront was relaxing, enjoyable and beautiful. The park is clean and well maintained. The view is spectacular and it's a nice change from the church street congestion.

Go there for the Grand Point North festival every September. It's quaint, relaxing and beautiful. If you get a chance, go here to see the sunrise or sunset over Lake Champlain!
