    Burlington Favorites

    Burlington has a comfortable mix of urban sophistication — museums, theatre, music, clubs and restaurants — and small-town intimacy. All of the usual outdoor seasonal activities are readily available. Several ski resorts are only a short drive away, with the Green Mountains a few miles to the east and the Adirondack Mountains across the lake in New...

  • " Best BBQ in Burlington "

    Burlington Restaurants

    Let's start by saying I'm somewhat of a BBQ fanatic, and have my own smoker at home. In every city I visit, I go in search of the best Smoked BBQ in town, and this is how we found Big Fatty’s BBQ, first off the smoked smell attracted me and my wife from blocks away so we had to stop in and try the food. This is where I met Alex Wilson, proprietor...

  • Free shuttle to Mt. Mansfield

    Stowe Transportation

    A very convenient way to get around Stowe, especially to reach Mt. Mansfield if you're staying on Main Street or anywhere along Mountain Road, is to ride the free Mountain Road Shuttle. These run roughly every 25 minutes between 6:40 am and 9:25 pm. You do make some stops along the way so it's slightly longer than taking you own car, but you save...

    When we arrived in Stowe, we found out they were celebrating their 40th winter carnival that weekend. At first I was excited at the idea of taking part in the festivities, but I quickly realized there wasn't much going on besides some ice carving. Not that I was expecting anything of the same magnitude as the carnival we have in Quebec City, but I...

  • romantic dining

    Middlebury Restaurants

    For more of a romantic getaway or a quiet evening with your favorite people, try Fire and Ice. Not as loud as Two Brothers, this place has more quaint New England charm, where one can actually hear their conversations. The Prime Rib was pretty darn good. Cool antiques decorate the restaurant and bar. A bit pricey, like any classy establishment.

    Amtrack does not stop in Waterbury, unfortunately. It stops in Montpelier which is about 30 miles away. Sorry to say you would need to rent a car in Montpelier. Be prepared to find that the Montpelier station is a small place with no nearby rental car offices. You would have to have a car reserved and pick it up in the center of Montpelier. If you...

The actual tour was only about fifteen minutes in length, it was difficult to understand what the guides were saying because they spoke rather quickly. The manufacturing floor is visible through a...

    In West Brattleboro, a drive from downtown. Lodge/pub-like feel with tables and booths. Reasonably priced menu items. Doting wait staff. Vampire chasers (roaster garlic/brie bread) were a nice start, onion soup, salads, fish, burgers, steaks. The prime rib special was rare to our liking. Cole slaw that came with the crab cakes was fresh (vinegary...

  • moderate weather

    Shelburne Favorites

    Although the latitude of Shelburne would make you think cold, cold, cold, the proximity of Lake Champlain tends to moderate the weather. The lake takes longer to warm up so it keeps the nearby towns a little cooler in summer and it is slower to cool off so it keeps those same places a little warmer in winter. That doesn't mean that it is balmy in...
