    Burlington VT

    I am going on a 2 week camping trip in the Burlington, VT area...does anyone on here live around there or know the area and cool stuff to do bike and non bike related? Probably not the best place for this, but oh well.

    Here are some suggestions, based on an itinery we had when we went on our annual trip to Old Lantern Campground, Charlotte, VT (just south of Burlington)

    (1) visit to The Magic Hat Brewery (tour plus free samples! yum! )
    (2) visit to Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream (B & J originated in VT)
    (3) another visit to The Magic Hat Brewery etc.
    (4) visit to Vermont Teddy Bear Company (for the wives & GFs; we used to sneak off for another Magic Hat tour)
    (5) another visit to The Magic Hat Brewery etc.
    (6) ferry across Lake Champlain to Essex (NY) for exploration trip
    (7) another visit to The Magic Hat Brewery etc.

    Don't forget the Burton snowboards home office, and if you skate they have a sick bowl behind the building.

    Old Spokes Home is a great shop in Burlington. The Burlington bike path goes out to Colchester Causeway if you want to ride your bike a couple miles out into lake Champlain.

    If you've got any questions about the area, drop me a note.

    If your coming from Philthy, be prepared for kuture shock.
    Bring some extra stuff cuz you probably will end up not wanting
    to leave

    There are a couple outdoor shops right in town too, SkiRack
    and one right across the street(?). Right up from Echo which
    might be cool to walk around, too !
    Have fun.
