Burlington is the most populous city in the U.S. Kids will appreciate attractions like ECHO, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain and North Beach Park. Visiting Burlington Bike Path and Alburg Dunes State Park will get you outdoors. There's still lots to do: take in the waterfront at Perkins Pier, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Champlain, don't miss a visit to World's Tallest Filing Cabinet, and admire all the interesting features of Burlington Community Boathouse Marina.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Burlington vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.
