    Lake Champlain Ferries

    by Tom_Fields Written Oct 17, 2009

    The ferries on Lake Champlain have operated for centuries. Today, the Lake Champlain Transportation Company provides this vital service. The boats connect Burlington, Port Kent, Essex, Charlotte, Plattsburgh, and Grand Isle, on both the Vermont and New York sides of the lake. The boat between Burlington and Port Kent, New York, runs daily from June through October. The trip is about an hour each way. Times are from 8:00 am to 6:15 pm from the King St ferry dock on Burlington's waterfront; see the website for more details.

    If you want to take day trips from Burlington to the Adirondacks (Ft Ticonderoga, Ausable Chasm, etc), then this is the way to go. It's also a nice way to see the lake, although without the narration provided on the cruises.

    This is all you will need to get anywhere!

    If it is a little more off the beaten path, you don't have a rental car, and don't feel like blowing money on a taxi (particularly terrible here)......hitchhike. You'd be surprised how easy, safe, and common it is compared to most places.

    Union Train Station Right by the Lake

    by Goner Updated Oct 26, 2002

    Union Station is 1/2 block from the lake and within walking distance of King Street Landing where the ferry goes to New York. For those who come into Burlington by train this is a great convenience.
