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.

Springtime in Vermont means that the snow is finally melting, and it's time to stop and smell the flowers. In this issue, we celebrate the glory of gardens by guiding you to blooms at local parks and an area art gallery. Want more fresh spring air? We'll point you in the right direction for outdoor adventures, from setting sail on Lake Champlain to biking through Burlington.

The fun doesn't stop at city limits. While you're here, set aside time to explore "Burlington's Brooklyn." That's one nickname for neighboring Winooski, a historic mill town now known for its beautiful riverfront boardwalk, circular downtown and hip nightlife.

Hungry after all that sightseeing? April's Vermont Restaurant Week brings 10 days of statewide dining deals that pair perfectly with excursions near and far. We'll tell you what's cookin' at, and around, three exciting eateries.

Read on for an itinerary of what to do, see and sample. 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.

Le printemps au Vermont, c'est la neige qui fond enfin et les fleurs qui embaument l'air. Dans ce numéro, nous célébrons la gloire des jardins en vous guidant vers les parcs locaux et une galerie d'art qui valent le détour. Pour prendre un bol d'air frais, nous vous conseillons une aventure en plein air, une croisière sur le lac Champlain ou encore une balade à vélo dans Burlington.

N'hésitez surtout pas à sortir de la ville. Pendant votre séjour, prenez le temps d'explorer le « Brooklyn de Burlington ». C'est le surnom qu'on donne à la communauté voisine de Winooski, une ville industrielle historique reconnue pour sa superbe promenade riveraine, son centre-ville circulaire et sa vie nocturne branchée.

Toutes ces activités vous ont creusé l'appétit? En avril, ne manquez pas la Semaine des restaurants du Vermont : 10 jours d'aubaines gastronomiques dont vous pouvez profiter dans tout l'État. Après ou avant une excursion, c'est tout simplement parfait. Nous vous dévoilons ce qui mijote dans trois sympathiques restaurants et ce qu'il y a à faire dans les environs.

Vous trouverez dans ce numéro un itinéraire des choses à faire, à voir et à goûter. 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.

    A Ferris wheel towers over the Champlain Valley Exposition, its steel spokes illuminated by gyrating patterns of multicolored neon lights. Aromas of fried dough, cotton candy, beer and straw bales intermingle in the languid summer air. Sunburned teens in tank tops and jean cutoffs snap selfies along the midway while one of their friends in a baseball cap hurls sidearm pitches at a dunk tank, trying to douse a heckling clown.
