Burlington

4.3
Burlington is the most populous city in the U.S. state of Vermont and the seat of Chittenden County. It is located south of the Canada–United States border and south of Canada's second most populous city of Montreal. The municipal population was 42,452 according to a 2015 U.S. census estimate. It is the least populous city in the U.S. to be the most populous city in a state.A regional college town, Burlington is home to the University of Vermont (UVM) and Champlain College, a small private college. Vermont's largest hospital, the UVM Medical Center, is located within the municipal limits. In 2015, Burlington became the first city in the U.S. to run completely on renewable energy.EtymologyTwo theories have been put forward regarding the origin of Burlington's name. The first is that it was named after Richard Boyle, 3rd Earl of Burlington, and the second is that the name honors the politically prominent and wealthy Burling family of New York. While no Burling family members are listed as grantees of the town, the family held large tracts of land in nearby towns, some of which were granted on the same day as Burlington.
