Here is a small list of some of the best things Burlington and Vermont have to offer.</p> <h3><strong><em>1.&nbsp;Four <u>Actual</u> Seasons</em></strong></h3> <p><strong>Winter</strong></p> <p>Vermont has some of the biggest and best mountain resorts on the east coast. With so many different mountains to choose from, such as Stowe, Sugarbush, Jay Peak, Bolton, and Smuggler&rsquo;s Notch, Vermont has become a haven for Eastern skiers and snowboarders alike. Also enjoy cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, ice fishing, and snowmobiling.</p> <p><strong>Spring</strong></p> <p>Once all of the snow melts and the mud dries. Vermont can finally live up to its &ldquo;Green Mountain State&rdquo; name. The mountain vegetation grows thick with wildflowers and a blanket of greenery. Take a hike in early spring to avoid the humid summer months.</p> <p><strong>Summer</strong></p> <p>Vermont summers are like no other. There are so many fun activities and summer events within 40 minutes of Burlington, you could lose your mind trying to pick the perfect one. From biking and hiking to fishing and sailing, there is something for everyone. &nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Fall</strong></p> <p>Vermont is widely known as the &ldquo;best leaf peeping state in the country,&rdquo; and it isn&rsquo;t hard to see why. Crowds of people, knows by locals as &ldquo;Leaf Peepers&rdquo;, come across state lines to witness Vermont&rsquo;s colorful fall foliage. (Prime months being September through November)</p> <h3><strong><em>2. Lake Champlain</em></strong></h3> <p>Lake Champlain, the 13<sup>th</sup> largest lake in the United States measuring a whopping 490 square miles, has so much to offer. Relax at one of the many waterfront restaurants, grab a drink and enjoy the sunset. Take a dinner cruise on &lsquo;The Spirit of Ethan Allen&rsquo;. Beat the heat and take a dip at one of Burlington&rsquo;s many waterfront parks and lakeside beaches.</p> <h3><strong><em>3. Church Street Marketplace</em></strong></h3> <p>The Church Street Marketplace, Burlington&rsquo;s largest and busiest outdoor shopping area, has endless places to shop, street performers, some of the city&rsquo;s historic architecture, and famous eateries and bars. At night, the marketplace is beautifully lit up with lights on all of the trees from top to bottom. Come during the winter months to see the oversized Christmas tree at the top of Church Street.</p> <h3><strong><em>4. Burlington Farmer&rsquo;s Market</em></strong></h3> <p>Since 1980, Burlington has been home to a year round, summer (outdoor) and winter (indoor), Farmer&rsquo;s Market with over 90 stands. Hosted every weekend, people come in droves to City Hall Park (summer) and Memorial Auditorium (winter) to sample and buy local produce, art, and flowers and to listen to live music.</p> <h3><strong><em>5. Amazing Food and Drink</em></strong></h3> <p>Burlington is widely considered the food hub of Vermont. With so many amazing restaurants, bars, breweries, and vineyards, Burlington has your cravings covered. Stop at Church Street Tavern or Ken&rsquo;s Pizza for a quick bite or fine-dine at Hen of the Wood for a farm-to-table feast.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Whatever your reason to move to Vermont, you will find it hard to be bored with everything that this town has to offer.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_largest_lakes_of_the_United_States_by_area"> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_largest_lakes_of_the_United_States_by_area</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.burlingtonfarmersmarket.org/about/entertainment/">http://www.burlingtonfarmersmarket.org/about/entertainment/</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Community Events Vermont Real Estate Vermont Uncategorized Real Estate Tips Marketing Lake Champlain House & Home Wed, 27 Jul 2016 11:07:51 -0400 South Burlington, Vermont Open House - Sunday 5/15, 1-3 PM http://www.buyvtrealestate.com/blog/posts/2016/05/13/south-burlington-vermont-open-house-sunday-5-15-1-3-pm/ <span style="font-size: 11.2px; line-height: 14.56px;">This Sunday, May 15, 2016 from 1:00-3:00pm, Geri Reilly Real Estate is hosting an Open House!
