I live near Burlington – it’s a bit flooded in terms of the lake but it’s still very pretty.  Going to Shelburne museums or shelburne farms and walking around is great if it’s nice out (the Magic Hat Brewery is nearby).  Church st is fun for shopping and people watching.  

What type of food would you like to eat?  My favorites in and around Burlington are: A Single Pebble, Tiny Thai, Our House, Sneakers/Magnolias/Firebird cafe (for Brunch/lunch),  Juniors (in Colchester) 

http://www.7nvt.com/ is helpful for looking at reviews.  Let me know if you need any more specific reccomendations or have any questions!  Have a nice minimoon!

Ooh ooh!! We went a a year and a half ago and I loved it!!! I’m going to PM you our photos. There’s a farmer’s market we went to that was awesome! We love love loved the farms nearby and went on a little cheese tour. I think Martha Stewart had a little roadmap on her site a while ago, I’ll try to find it for you. I can hardly wait to go back to Vermont one day!

Oh oh, Burlington’s great! Church St is really fun for shopping and just walking around. In terms of food, I love A Single Pebble but also American Flatbread is pretty good too and Drink is a cute place for cocktails and such. I don’t eat meat but there’s a Brazillian steakhouse around there that’s supposed to be pretty awesome. You can also walk around the lake (if it’s not too flooded like PP said).

@fancypants: What’s the name of the microbrewery rootbeer that’s made in Burlington? Darling Husband and I loved it! He had a rootbeer float for breakfast at the farmer’s market! LOL! And a tibetan samosa… Oooh and I got these amazing stuffed bagels that were to. die. for.

ETA – I found it! It was called Rookie’s Rootbeer. Delicious. Is it bad that I’m focussing on what we ate during our visit to Vermont?!

Love love love Burlington!  My parents have a place right near there in South Hero.  Anywho, in Burlington, I love Daily Planet and Stone Soup (this place is vegan/vegetarian, and while I’m not really either of those, their food is still amazing).  Both have great food and are more casual.  But really, Burlington has great food and great restaurants, and so many are very farm-to-table and organic, and in my opinion, often food is better that way!  PM me if you have any questions about Burlington!  Also…love Church Street.  Great for shopping and wandering.

Eat breakfast at Mirabelle’s Cafe on Main Street. Best breakfast I’ve ever eaten, and a nice selection of interesting teas (although I now realize that your B&B probably has breakfast covered).

We also had a lovely dinner at Leunig’s on Church Street. Make reservations if you go; it was packed when we were there.

@bakerella: Yum! Rookies is my favorite and there’s no high fructose corn syrup in it.  Burlington is tiny but lots of good places to eat… not so great when you’re trying to diet though 🙂  

And for the OP: Oh also the farmhouse  is yummy and has a huge selection of beers.  Das Beirhaus is fun if you are in the mood for some German fare.

You’ll miss the farmer’s market unless it’s runnign during the week… they have a website, check it out and definitely go if you can.

The ECHO museum is a neat stop if you’ve got a couple of extra hours.

Definitely check out Magnolia Bistro, it’s right in the center square in town.  Lots of Vegan/Veggie items on the menu.  Super super cute place.

i’m so bummed we decided to switch up our plans, we totally could have had a minimoon beer together 🙂  We’re headed to Portland Maine and Portsmouth New Husband, since we go to Burlington fairly often.

Have fun!!!
