One Day in Burlington, Vermont: Three “Must Try’s”

My short time in Burlington consisted of early morning departures, late night arrivals, and rain in between. However, I have nothing but good things to say about my recent trip! Maybe that means that I’m quite easy to please. But during my short trip I found that no matter what the weather might be, with some research, there’s always something to be discovered in a new destination.

Today, I’m saving you the research and sharing with you my top three destinations to scope out if you choose to travel to Burlington during the summer. Continue reading “One Day in Burlington, Vermont: Three “Must Try’s””
