Grab a creemee

No, it’s not soft serve. There something different, something extra special, about a Vermont creemee. Opt for a classic maple twist down the street at Burlington Bay or pop over to visit Offbeat Creemee, the new kids on the block that are making a splash with their new, vegan, funky-flavored and extravagantly-topped, creemees.

Hop on the Burlington Bike Path

Walk, run, or roll on the Burlington Bike Path! Rent bike from us or our friends at Local Motion (kids bikes available here)

Soak in the views of Lake Champlain as you make your way along the path. We recommend packing a picnic and making a stop at Leddy or North Beaches. If the family is feeling energetic, pack up for the day and trek the whole 20 miles out to the Bike Ferry.
