  The closest Amtrak station is in Essex Junction, about a 15-20 minute drive to the east with daily service between Washington, D.C. and New York City.
  Ferry service is available from downtown Burlington to Port Kent, NY across Lake Champlain, this gives access to the Adirondacks area of New York state. See the schedule and rates .

Get around

  On Foot: Downtown Burlington is one of the most walkable and beautiful small cities in New England, and you'd do well to get out of your car and soak it in.

  By Car: There are car rental offices at Burlington International Airport, including Hertz, Avis and Thrifty. Traffic is generally bad during the normal crunch hours and Williston Road and Shelburne Road are always congested, and, unfortunately, unavoidable for the most part.

  Transit: Burlington and the surrounding communities of South Burlington, Shelburne, Colchester and Essex Junction are served by the Chittenden County Transportation Authority (CCTA) which operates public buses. Buses are generally clean, uncrowded and relatively cheap. The main terminal is in downtown Burlington at the intersection of Church St. and Cherry St.

Activities

Go Biking - Burlington has a 7.6 mile bike path that runs along the lake and now connects to the Colchester bike path.
