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.

As Lake Champlain's gently lapping waves slowly freeze in place and snowfall coats the landscape in a layer of clean white, Vermont reveals new opportunities for outdoor adventure. Its pristine slopes have beckoned so-called "ski bums" since the 1960s — and, in this issue, we explore the history and lasting impact of that movement. And we point you in the right direction for some ski bumming of your own.

Don't have a need for downhill speed? There are myriad other ways to get outside and enjoy our winter wonderland, from ice skating to sleigh riding. We've rounded up some of our favorite activities close to Burlington.

Of course, you'll need to head inside and defrost afterward. For that, Burlington offers a number of hot spots with warming cocktails, roaring fireplaces and indoor entertainment. And when it's time to lay your head on a pillow, cozy overnight options abound.

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

If and when Vermont legalizes cannabis for adult use, what would be your preferred means of ingestion?

  • I’m old-school and will keep burning the bud.
  • I’m looking forward to display cases full of THC-laced baked goods.
  • Bring on the oils, dabs and vape pens.

    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.
