Welcome to Burlington — and Vermont

We're delighted to have you! BTV: The Burlington International Airport Quarterly is a bilingual magazine — translated into French for our Québécois visitors — that highlights Vermont's recreational, cultural and dining scenes according to the season.

In this issue, we explore Vermont from top to bottom — soaring through the sky in a hot-air balloon, flying down a mountain on a zip line, skimming the surface of Lake Champlain on a kayak, and then diving deep into its waters on a shipwreck tour. If you've come to enjoy summertime, you'll find some tempting options within these pages.

Or, if you're just passing through Vermont, we hope this issue convinces you to return for a longer stay! Use this magazine, too, as a guide to the airport and on-the-ground transportation options.

While you're waiting for takeoff, the Burlington International Airport aims to make your stay a pleasant one. Please have a look around and enjoy its amenities and services, including locavore food vendors, a yoga space, breastfeeding rooms, charging stations and free Wi-Fi, and local art.

We thank you for flying BTV and hope you'll come back to see us soon. Let the beautiful city of Burlington and state of Vermont amaze you.

Signs of Summer

Everybody plays the fool at the Festival of Fools, a street-theater celebration that overtakes downtown Burlington with circus arts and other silliness from July 29 to 31. 

More than 90 food vendors showcase the local agricultural bounty at the lively Burlington Farmers Market, held every Saturday in City Hall Park. 

Cinema lovers park it at the Sunset Drive-In Theatre in nearby Colchester, where four screens show double features of first-run films all summer long.

For more seasonal highlights, turn to “In Season.”

Dans ce numéro, nous explorons le Vermont de fond en comble: dans les airs en montgolfière, en tyrolienne à flanc de montagne, en kayak sur les eaux du lac Champlain et au fond du lac pour y découvrir des épaves. Si vous êtes venu profiter de l'été, une foule d'options intéressantes s'offrent à vous.

Si vous ne faites que passer, nous espérons que ce numéro vous convaincra de revenir pour un plus long séjour! Utilisez également ce magazine pour vous orienter dans l'aéroport et guider vos choix de transport terrestre.

L'Aéroport international de Burlington tient à rendre votre attente aussi agréable que possible. N'hésitez pas à faire le tour des installations et à profiter des nombreux services : restaurants locavores, studio de yoga, salles d'allaitement, bornes de recharge et Wi-Fi gratuit, art local, etc.

Tout le monde peut faire l'idiot au Festival of Fools, ce festival de théâtre de rue qui prend d'assaut les artères du centre-ville de Burlington du 29 au 31 juillet. Vous y rencontrerez des artistes de cirque et toutes sortes d'autres petits rigolos.

Plus de 90 exposants viennent présenter les riches produits de l'agriculture locale au très vivant Farmers Market de Burlington. Ce marché des producteurs a lieu tous les samedis au City Hall Park.

Les amateurs de cinéma adorent fréquenter le cinéparc Sunset Drive-In tout près, à Colchester, où sont présentés sur quatre écrans pendant tout l'été des programmes doubles de films en primeur.

Pour connaître d’autres attraits saisonniers, allez à la rubrique « En cours de saison. »

    Burlington City Arts curates art exhibits in three areas of the airport: the Skyway, the area above the escalator and the walls facing security for Gates 1 through 8. Whether you've arrived early for a flight or are waiting to pick up passengers, do take the time to look around!

    On Seven Days' Love and Marriage Issue cover this week, we asked readers to draft a letter — Mad Lib-style — to their Valentine. This kind of creative writing requires a pair: One asking for parts of speech, the other dreaming up the answers. If you're playing solitaire, though, here's a whiz-bang generator.

  • Say Cheese: Taking a Bite Out of the Vermont Cheese Trail

This tiny state is home to more than 45 artisanal cheesemakers, many of which have earned international honors. Among them: Jasper Hill Farm in Greensboro, Vermont Creamery in Websterville, Boston Post Dairy in Enosburg Falls, the von Trapp Farmstead in Waitsfield and, perhaps best known, Cabot.

  • Spring Forward: Making the Most of Vermont's Mud Season

    Springtime in Vermont is a never-ending grab bag of surprises. One day, it might be dumping powder at Stowe, Sugarbush and other ski resorts. The next day, a thaw may turn dirt roads into muck in the foothills of the Green Mountains. But don't let yourself get stuck inside during Vermont's infamous mud season. The trick to getting fresh air during these spring months is to know which recreational areas to hit when. Here's a guide to some outdoor options.
