A marketplace full of activity in downtown Burlington.
Among its many trophies, Burlington boasts Church Street Marketplace, an outdoor pedestrian mall that marks the city center. Explore Vermont's famous promenade lined with cafés, boutiques and street vendors. It's a cornucopia of local color, all nestled within a four-block stretch.
Stop by the charmingly independent Crow Bookshop to find new and used books for the whole family. Shoppers will love browsing, but half the fun of Church Street is the surprising characters. One never knows what lurks ahead; perhaps a parade of nude cyclists, or a tightrope walker wowing the crowd.
