Geological adventure during the winter when marsh ice is solid ( not always a sure bet, just ask my husband.) Access by parking at Burlington High School and cross North Ave. Follow signs, only 1/8 mile down to caves. In case you take an unexpected plunge (again, eye roll toward my husband) you’ll want to have backup clothes in car and a friend (wife) handy.

A gorgeous place to walk or run, the paths leading from the Farm store and parking lot take you to the Inn and the lake. It is breathtakingly beautiful and wide open; plenty of space to distance from others and unwind. The Farm store offers an incredible selection of prepared meals to heat at home, fresh produce and salads, cheeses, and syrup - created right at the Farm. Under 20 minute drive along Route 7 south to Harbor Road.

Comfort food. Perfect pho ga to warm your pandemic-weary heart. A large serving is a good serving if you'd like a warm leftover later. You cannot go wrong here and the prices are very reasonable; about $11 for large pho. Located at the northern-most end of North Winooski Avenue, a 10 minute walk away.

Winter trek up and over the Notch from Mount Mansfield/ Stowe to Cambridge/Smuggler's Notch Ski Area. Road is closed to traffic and minimally groomed to provide a packed surface to walk, snowshoe or use nordic/backcountry gear to explore. Views of ice falls and glades; gorgeous. Popular place on a bluebird sky day.

Weatherproof Gear

Vermonter’s say that if you don’t like the weather, wait a minute. And that there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing. So, to ensure a comfortable visit: bring layers of clothing that wick moisture away from your body when you’ll be active, lots of layers to add or subtract as needed, and practical gear ( shoes and boots with good grippy tread, water repellent jackets, hats, and insulated outerwear for September through April.) Burlington trends warmer thanks to the Champlain Valley and lake effects.

Burlington Greenway & Waterfront Park

This is the heart of Burlington, connecting the north and south neighborhoods of the city together at the lake. Walk, roll, or run for over 30 possible miles that wind through the city - perfect for ditching your car - and trace along the lake (locals call this section the “bike path”) for incredible views of the Adirondack mountains and the BTV cityscape. Quiet and tranquil in the early morning and bustling with activity late afternoon and weekends.
