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.

Each year, autumn brings upwards of 3 million visitors from around the globe to the Green Mountain State. They come to view the world-famous fall foliage, drive the twisting mountain roads, bite into apples right at the orchard and climb the peaks on those perfectly crisp, sunny days. In this issue, we'll lead the way to some quintessential experiences, including biking by farms and fields of flowers on the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail and sipping a cold pint of hard cider brewed right in Burlington.

We'll also explore some hidden gems of the season, from a graffiti festival on the edge of Lake Champlain to a glassblowing competition featuring the country's top pipe makers. Whether you're in town for September's Art Hop or not, follow our guide to the colorful South End Arts District, a hot spot for galleries, breweries and restaurants. And trek slightly south on Route 7 toward Shelburne Vineyard, where natural wines capture Vermont's terroir and sheep graze below the vines — part of an innovative project to improve soil health.

If you're just passing through Vermont, we hope you'll be convinced 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 a yoga space, breastfeeding rooms, charging stations, free Wi-Fi and local art. Locavore crêperie the Skinny Pancake has café locations before and after security to keep you happily fed whether you're coming or going.

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.

Nous sommes ravis de vous accueillir! BTV : Le bulletin trimestriel de l'Aéroport international de Burlington est un magazine bilingue, traduit en français pour nos amis québécois, qui met en valeur les attraits récréatifs, culturels et culinaires du Vermont, selon la saison.

Chaque automne, plus de 3 millions de touristes provenant de partout dans le monde visitent l'État des Montagnes vertes. Ils viennent découvrir les célèbres couleurs d'automne, sillonner les routes de montagne, croquer dans des pommes cueillies directement au verger et escalader les sommets environnants par de belles journées ensoleillées. Dans ce numéro, nous vous présenterons quelques expériences typiques, comme découvrir à vélo les fermes et les champs de fleurs en suivant le Lamoille Valley Rail Trail ou savourer une pinte de cidre bien frais, produit ici même à Burlington.

Nous explorerons également quelques secrets bien gardés de la saison, notamment un festival de graffitis au bord du lac Champlain et un concours de verre soufflé qui met à l'honneur les meilleurs créateurs de pipes de verre au pays. Même si vous n'êtes pas venus pour l'événement Art Hop, qui a lieu en septembre, consultez notre guide sur le South End Arts District, un quartier des plus colorés où les galeries d'art, les microbrasseries et les restaurants abondent. En suivant la route 7 vers le sud, vous découvrirez non loin le vignoble Shelburne. On y produit des vins nature qui reflètent à merveille le terroir vermontois, tout en laissant les moutons brouter sous les vignes – projet novateur qui vise à améliorer la qualité du sol.

Si vous ne faites que passer au Vermont, nous espérons que vous voudrez 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 : studio de yoga, salles d'allaitement, bornes de recharge, Wi-Fi gratuit et art local. La crêperie locavore Skinny Pancake est présente avant et après la sécurité pour que vous puissiez vous restaurer à l'arrivée comme au départ.

Nous vous remercions d'avoir choisi BTV et espérons vous revoir bientôt. La ville de Burlington et l'État du Vermont sauront vous surprendre par leurs splendeurs.

  • Explore Hidden Wilderness Along the Burlington Wildways

    You might not realize it from the hustle and bustle of downtown, the postwar suburban sprawl of the New North End, or the hip postindustrial South End, but Burlington is pretty wild. Like, Henry David Thoreau/Walden Woods kind of wild. Despite its urban trappings, Vermont's largest city hides a treasure trove of natural wonders. The trick is knowing where to find them.

  • Get a Taste of Vermont at the Burlington Farmers Market

    "Farmers market" and "Vermont" are basically synonyms, right? The Green Mountain State is known for its cheese, its maple and its dedication to local food. And in Vermont's largest city, the Burlington Farmers Market is a community fixture. A trip to the market is a weekend ritual all season long.
