We enjoyed walking this area and then stopped for dinner at the water front restaurant. Very enjoyable.

If you are an outdoor family, or just love being outside, this place is beautiful. As a matter of fact, 13 years ago, I met my husband walking along the waterfront. Burlington is a very artistic, outdoor town, if you love that, and beautiful views, it's the perfect place. Now my husband and I bring our girls, every summer and... More

It was a bit on the chilly side (understatement) but coming here to look out at the frozen lake with its small islands was quite a treat after a long drive.

Stunningly beautiful. The lake is very close (within walking distance) to the Lang House on Main B&B. VERY worth the walk.

This area did not look like this when I attended college in Burlington over a decade ago, it was filled w/ bums and a place to avoid after dark! It's changed, and for the better. This beautiful park area was great for running, strolling, bike riding or plain old enjoying the views. A very enjoyable way to spend some time... More

Clean, pretty, safe, picturesque, fun events going on. It's a small town, so put it in perspective but I loved the little shops and beautiful views.

My partner & I traveled to Burlington to get married this past weekend. We chose the boardwalk along Waterfront Park as our venue. Lake Champlain offers a beautiful and romantic backdrop.

There are many different events happening here throughout the summer. you can see a band, or have a brewfast. Always something happening at the waterfront. Beautiful views of the sun setting, a bike path, and many places to walk around, as well as the Echo Aquarium.

The Burlington waterfront is a MUST for visitors. Take it from someone who's lived here for 20 years and STILL tries to get down there as close to daily as possible. Year round. Beautiful views across Lake Champlain at its widest point toward the Adirondacks on the NY side. Grab a swing along the boardwalk or a chair at the... More
