Northwestern Vermont is one of the prettiest places you will ever see. If you live here, I hope you don't take it for granted, because it is so special. There are a number of places to visit while you are here and one of the more popular places is downtown Burlington and the Church Street Marketplace. Designed somewhat like Fanuell Hall in Boston, the street is bricked and restricted to pedistrians only. It is lined with numerous shops and ethnic prescribed restaurants along with the art gallery and the Flynn theater just to the south. Being the largest city in Vermont it often is mistaken for being the capital with all its culture and diversity. If you head west from main street you board the Community Boathouse where you can have lunch, rent a boat or take an excursion on the Spirit of Ethan Allen. If you jump on the adjacent bike path you can run, jog, blade or bike up to north beach where you can stop for a swim or pack a lunch and have a picnic. We live in a pretty incredible place in my opinion. What do you think?
