Even in the dead of winter, the city of Burlington is bustling thanks to its exciting outdoor opportunities and local food and craft beer scene. Work up an appetite on the mountains skiing or snowboarding or shopping the unique boutiques in the Church Street Marketplace. Afterward, unwind with a flight at one of the city's many breweries or tap rooms. If you fancy yourself an IPA expert, crawl the Vermont brewery trail through and just outside of Burlington.
