Downtown Burlington Vermont's award-winning open air mall is a hub of activity where you'll find historical architecture, year-round festivals, street entertainers, music, over 100 places to shop and dine, and even quiet places to ponder. We invite...more

On Sunday, free street parking which was lucky for us. I thought the large mural of VT history of their famous residents was remarkable. We ate at 5 guys and did some shopping. Nice selection of shops.
Several blocks of shops restaurants and such in a blocked-off street in the middle of Burlington. Nice shops, good bars, nice restaurants, local flare, only moderate number of relatively polite street people. On Saturdays go a block west and hit the Farmers Market on the...More
Love this area. got there early in the morning so it wasn't too crowded. Enjoy shopping and having lunch and spreading the wealth. Unfortunately we could not find any public restrooms. One of our party had an emergency and needed one quick.Went back to the...More
The Church Street Marketplace is a few blocks of pedestrian-only shops and restaurants with abundant outdoor seating in good weather. It's reminiscent of being in many small towns in Germany in that respect, but the vibe is definitely Vermont, viz Ben & Jerry's flagship shop...More
Overrated, too many beggars, sketchy surrounding areas. A gradual decline in a quality experience of the downtown Church Street area. Watch your children, keep your eyes open and only go with a friend. Get off the streets by 5 pm. When there we witnessed individuals...More
This walking marketplace has something for everyone. Boutique stores, chain stores, restaurants and pubs. I love the openness, outdoor seating, and that no one can drive through the area. It always has a feeling of fun and happiness throughout!

You probably are arriving on the 13th and leaving on the 15th. I suggest you plan to spend time downtown. The Christmas lights will be up and the street looks magical. Maybe a cocktail at one place, dinner at another, then dessert someplace else. (I endorse Tratorria Delia for dinner; my absolute favorite although not wheelchair accessible) Have one exquisite chocolate at Champlain Chocolates. I count on the website of our local indie paper to tell me what's happening. The paper is called Seven Days. The website is of the same name.
It has all the news about events. A little too early to have much listed for your stay dates. I looked at the Flynn theater website for your stay dates and didn't find anything; that's very unusual. The Flynn is an art deco theater that has been updated and it's worth a look but no events scheduled as of now. Drive down to Shelburne to visit the Teddy Bear Factory and learn how the very successful business came to be. You will enjoy it even if you don't have children. There is a free shuttle bus that will bring you from the University of Vermont down to the waterfront. Since Burlington is built on a hill this little bus will climb the hill for you. Do go to the waterfront; it's magnificent in the winter as well as summer. The Courtyard by Marriott has a nice outdoor patio where they have a roaring fire in winter; great to sit and stare at the flames. If you go to the very top level of the many parking garages you get a wonderful view of the city as well as the lake and across to New York. Great spot; and free! Hope this helps.

Church Street Marketplace, a four block pedestrian street in the heart of the downtown, is lined with shops and restaurants of all descriptions and interest. Not sure when they close for the day, but most should be open late in early September. There is an extensive bikeway in Burlington and the walk along the lake is really nice. More to do in Burlington than I had initially expected.
