We spent four wonderful days in Burlington, VT in June of 2009. It's a beautiful town on Lake Champlain with many things for everyone to do. Children will enjoy any or all of the following activities:
- Spirit of Ethan Allen cruise on Lake Champlain
- Breakfast at the Skinny Pancake
- Touring ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center
- Eating chocolate at Lake Champlain Chocolates
- Hunting for Champ the Sea Monster's plaque along the shores of Lake Champlain
- Visiting the Ben & Jerry Ice Cream factory in nearby Waterbury, VT
- Playing jumbo checkers on the lawn of the Inn at Essex
- Taking a hot air balloon ride from Above Reality Balloons
You can do as much or as little as you like. The weather is moderate during the summer. I highly recommend Burlington for a nice family getaway.
