As a longtime resident in the hill section of Burlington, I enjoy the convenience and beauty of this historic neighborhood that is perched on the hill next to UVM and Champlain College. Minutes from the Burlington airport and the interstate, yet walking distance to the shores of Lake Champlain where you will find the Burlington Boat House, the bike path and the expansive waterfront park. We can walk downtown to enjoy the Flynn Performing Arts Center, or take in a movie, or enjoy one of over 50 restaurants! Saturday mornings, the Farmers market is a must! As a neighbor of Champlain College, I can audit classes, free of charge, as well as enjoy the evening lecture series.
Still, we have easy access to the mountains, with skiing, canoeing, hiking and camping all within an hour- talk about the best of both worlds! This weekend we took the kids to Stowe for a day of hiking, to enjoy the fall foliage- what a day! All within an hour of home.
If you are thinking of living "in-town" with all the convenience that has to offer, Burlington is the city for you. Voted one of the "Most Walkable Cities", "Best Places to Raise a Family", "Tree City USA", and "Best Places to Retire".
