A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I went to Burlington, VT to visit some of his family. I've been to Vermont in the winter before, but never to Burlington and never when the weather was warm.
I wasn't expecting Lake Champlain to be quite so large or so beautiful. I love being near the water, and Burlington is very much a waterfront town.
The architectural details throughout Burlington were beautiful and varied. I loved just walking around and looking at the different types of buildings.
I absolutely love coffee. To the point of obsession. So, as you can imagine, I was thrilled when we stopped at the Bluebird Coffee Stop where I had the most amazing maple latte.
In Burlington, people seem to ride bikes everywhere.
We had a great time looking through little boutiques and trying different restaurants. We ate at Rí Rá twice while we were in Burlington. Their white bean veggie burger was seriously amazing.
The mountains looked unbelievably beautiful across Lake Champlain. It had been raining most of the time that we were there, and the mountains rose delicately out of the mist that hung over the lake.
We stopped and sat on a bench in Battery Park on the end of our last day and spent a while just taking in the scenery and watching people walk by.
