I have SO much I want to share about our Vermont trip! I just wish I had a few extra hours a day to go through the excessive amount of photos I took!

I’ve been separating them by day and decided to start with a photo post of our day in Burlington. Actually, it was just a few hours. We had to head back to the hotel for a cooking class — yet another thing I want to tell you about!

One of the first things we saw was a place more than of few people told me about, The Farm House.

We were hungry, too!

Next time I’m in Burlington for sure!

Unfortunately 50 minutes was just way too long to wait.

We continued our walk. It was GORGEOUS out!

And we both commented that we’d love to live here if it wasn’t so darn cold most of the year.

We settled on a little place called Leunig’s for lunch.

They had something on the menu I’ve never seen before.

I had to do it. Unlike The Husband  who ordered a burger, I have the must-try-new-things gene.

We did split an amazing appetizer though.

That was shrimp and steak skewers with some kind of salsa on the bottom.


Even though we didn’t find out until after I took the photo.

He's getting more tolerant of my obsessive photo taking.

The Duck Tacos came and they were fabulous!

We enjoyed our lunch and hit Church Street again.

I really wanted to see the waterfront so we took a turn towards Lake Champlain.

You can see the lake from everywhere!


Absolutely breathtaking!

I just couldn’t help myself.

On our walk back I saw this artist painting.

We had a quick conversation about how awesome it was out and how he loves it there.

Just thinking about it is making me smile. 🙂

We walked back to Church Street and settled on a snow cone for dessert.

Then just strolled around admiring all the street performers.

We took a small break in the mall before heading back.

It really was a wonderful afternoon. I never expected Burlington to be so nice!

Stay tuned for more Vermont posts. I plan on reviewing the resort next. In the meantime click here to see how we got to Vermont!
