Welcome to Burlington — and Vermont

We're delighted to have you! BTV: The Burlington International Airport Quarterly is a bilingual magazine — translated into French for our Québécois visitors — that highlights Vermont's recreational, cultural and dining scenes according to the season.

This issue is a celebration of Vermont's short but sweet summer. Lake Champlain comes alive this time of year as the center of warm-weather activity; we'll tell you how to best experience its waters by skimming the surface with a paddle in hand or diving deep below the waves to see some historic shipwrecks. From foodie walking tours to baseball games to concerts outdoors and in, we'll present you with some exciting options for what to eat, see and hear in and around Burlington, too.

Or, if you're just passing through Vermont, we hope this issue convinces you to return for a longer stay! Use this magazine, too, as a guide to the airport and on-the-ground transportation options.

While you're waiting for takeoff, the Burlington International Airport aims to make your stay a pleasant one. Please have a look around and enjoy its amenities and services, including a yoga space, breastfeeding rooms, charging stations, free Wi-Fi and local art. Locavore crêperie the Skinny Pancake now has café locations before and after security to keep you happily fed whether you're coming or going.

We thank you for flying BTV and hope you'll come back to see us soon. Let the beautiful city of Burlington and state of Vermont amaze you.

Summertime brings the seasonal rebirth of Vermont's beloved snack shacks, which can be found lakeside as well as deep in the mountains. Do like the locals and order a creemee from Burlington Bay Market & Café — "creemee" is Vermont's extra-creamy version of soft-serve ice cream. 

Lake Champlain doesn't have the wind and waves that coastal surfers take for granted, but it's a hot spot for the flat-water alternative: standup paddleboarding. Leave the shore behind and glide across the serene surface with a rental, lesson or tour from Paddlesurf Champlain, located at Burlington's Oakledge Park.

Colorful sunsets over the lake are a nightly spectacle, but it doesn't get prettier than Burlington's Independence Day Celebration held (a day early) on July 3. Ooh and aah over after-dark fireworks — plus live music, food vendors and street performers — at this patriotic party along the waterfront.

L'été est synonyme de réouverture des très populaires casse-croûtes du Vermont le long du lac et dans les montagnes. Faites comme les habitants du coin et commandez un cornet de "creemee" au Burlington Bay Market & Café — la "creemee" est une crème glacée extramolle typique du Vermont.

Le lac Champlain n'offre pas les vents et les vagues dont les surfeurs de l'océan ont l'habitude, mais c'est un plan d'eau idéal pour la planche à pagaie, activité de rechange en eau calme. Quittez la rive et glissez sur les eaux lisses du lac sur une planche en location, dans le cadre d'une leçon ou bien lors d'une excursion proposée par Paddlesurf Champlain, qui se trouve au parc Oakledge, à Burlington.

Les couchers de soleil sur le lac constituent un magnifique spectacle quotidien, mais rien ne dépasse les festivités du Jour de l'indépendance qui ont lieu le 3 juillet (un jour à l'avance). Les feux d'artifice, une fois le soir tombé, sont une merveille, et une grande fête a lieu au bord du lac, avec concerts et spectacles en plein air, ainsi que kiosques alimentaires.

    Summertime visitors to Burlington inevitably turn their eyes to Lake Champlain. Its sparkling waters invite all kinds of aquatic activity and reflect — to stunning effect — candy-colored sunsets. But these deep-blue waves also hold both history and mystery. Looking to dive into their depths? Head to the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum (lcmm.org).

    In the mid-19th century, the waters of Lake Champlain lapped much farther east than they do today — right up to the edge of Burlington's Battery Street, which was then called Lake Street.

    Baseball is America's favorite pastime, and it's easy to see why at a Vermont Lake Monsters game. Home games are held at historic Centennial Field — opened in 1906, it's the oldest active ballpark in the country. These days, the small stadium draws nearly 100,000 fans each summer to watch the state's minor-league baseball team go to bat. Throughout the years, plenty of Burlington players have gone on to the majors, including Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. Buy some peanuts and Cracker Jacks, then watch team mascot Champ — a friendly green incarnation of Lake Champlain's storied monster — entertain the masses.
