Sit in a swinging bench, watch the sunset, get in some great people watching, bring a picnic /dinner or grab a bite to eat at any number or restaurants within walking distance to the waterfront. Even in the cold weather the waterfront is fabulous.

This is my favorite place to walk along Lake Champlain. Views are 10 star, there is a boathouse to visit and have dinner, boats to take cruises around the lake leave from here; ECHO educational center has tons of information about the lake, and children's exhibits, a boardwalk with swings to cruise, a small park with a fishing pier is...

We went after going to the Echo Lake Aquarium. There are some great sunset view and if you are a photo-enthusiast like my wife is, you will enjoy taking pictures as the light changes quickly during the setting of the sun. We had some great color in the sky and with the water forefront and mountain backdrop made for very... More

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.

Walking around Burlington and down by the lake in the fall is fantastic. The path through the park and along the lake is fabulous, as the multi colored leaves fall from the trees and you can see across the lake to the Adirondack Mountains.

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.

We were on a women's bus trip to Vermont which of course included a lot of shopping and eating. We discovered the Waterfront Park a short distance from the downtown. It was a warm day but overcast. We walked along the boardwalk and docks and then ventured up to Battery Park for a beautiful view of the lake, fall colours... More
