Vermont's largest city - and only city of any size - lies in a beautiful location on a hillside overlooking Lake Champlain and the skyline of the Adirondack mountains, on the opposite shore in New York. The thriving downtown reaches right to the shore, but its main shopping district is a few streets above on Church Street. There is almost always something happening in this broad, car-free space lined by shops and restaurants. Crowning the hill is the stately campus of the University of Vermont, which gives Burlington a young, hip vibe. Don't expect a big city, but do expect to find a high concentration of arts and cultural attractions, as well as plenty of active options for tourists to enjoy. Burlington has a high population of artists and fine quality craftspeople, whose works you'll see in the many galleries and studios throughout the city and surrounding towns. The Flynn Theater is a magnet for top national and international performers and music, and Burlington is home to the Vermont Symphone Orchestra as well as music and theater groups at the university.
