  • Take Shelter: Burlington's Boutique Accommodations Are a Home Away From Home

    Burlington makes an ideal getaway any time of the year. As Vermont's biggest city, it offers the best of both worlds — rural intimacy and authenticity balanced with urban convenience, hustle and bustle. Visit in the winter, however, and you'll likely spend more time cozying up at your overnight accommodations. Warm blankets and warmer hospitality are fine antidotes to the cold weather.

  • High Score: Burlington's Archives is a Player

    When entering the Archives, downtown Burlington's classic-game arcade, one of the first consoles you see is Tapper. The 1983 game, in which a bartender must keep up with his patrons' increasingly frenzied demands for beer, is an apt metaphor for the Archives' two raisons d'être: vintage video games and sudsy brews.

    When the clock strikes midnight on December 31, Burlington will usher in 2018 with a bang of fireworks over Lake Champlain. But that’s just the final touch on the annual revelry that is First Night Burlington. Founded in 1983, the event has become Vermont’s largest single-day arts celebration, a substance-free festival serving up 13 hours of eclectic entertainment in more than a dozen downtown venues. Buy a button, then crisscross the city for a classic cabaret by Burlington’s Lyric Theatre, aerial artistry and general clowning around by Vermont’s award-winning Circus Smirkus, highenergy funk-rock by local band Gang of Thieves, and so much more. Cheers to the New Year.

    Burlington is small, but it showcases the performing arts in a big way.

  • In Season, Fall 2017

    From bustling Church Street to the highly trafficked waterfront, Burlington is anything but a ghost town — unless Thea Lewis is leading your way. The actor, author and paranormal historian is also Vermont's queen of Halloween, and, in the weeks leading up to that haunted holiday, she presides over three walking tours rife with local history and mystery. The Darkness Falls Tour explores the spooky spirits of Burlington's downtown; the Wicked Waterfront Tour dives into shipwrecks, lake monsters and shoreline mischief; and the Cemetery Tour travels to the city's most ghoulish gravestones. These tales are spine-tingling but typically appropriate for ages 9 and up.

  • Ground Crew: Meet FliRite Aviation Pilot Shirley Chevalier

    Shirley Chevalier dips a wing on her 1959 American Champion and takes the single-engine plane into a sharp banking dive toward a grassy airstrip on Lake Champlain's Savage Island. As the tiny two-seater approaches the private island, halfway between New York and Vermont, it shudders from a sudden burst of turbulence. Chevalier pulls up on the stick and aborts the landing. A second, equally bumpy attempt is also aborted.
