On the shores of tranquil Lake Champlain, Burlington is a small city in tidy, bucolic Vermont. Close to 40,000 people call Burlington home, which makes it the most populous city in the Green Mountain State. A two hour drive south of Montreal, Burlington is known as the “Queen City of Vermont” and has a ton of natural beauty in store for visitors.
It begins with Lake Champlain of course, a natural, freshwater lake and popular summer retreat on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border. With a special ecology and many fine parks, three of which reside within Burlington city limits, the lake is a wonderful source of recreation throughout the year. Mount Mansfield soars above the Burlington skyline and is home to Stowe Mountain Resort.
