Look up “Weird Burlington” and you’ll find plenty of stories, from Lake Champlain’s own monster (named “Champ”) to the world’s tallest file cabinet. The city has a long history of fierce independence and collectivism, dating back to the 1700s when Vermont was briefly an independent country. By the way, don’t even question its love for maple syrup. If you’re ready for the rush of nature and freedom, flights to Burlington International Airport (BTV) await. Take time out from the daily grind and fly to a land of open space, beautiful lakes, and verdant mountains.
Transportation From BTV
Even the airport is loaded with unorthodox features for those on cheap flights to Burlington. Take a breath of fresh air on the airport’s “green roof.” Inside the terminal, recline in the mezzanine on a couch or easy chair. You’ll find car rentals on the first floor, and then it’s just a quick walk to your vehicle. Take the Burlington Circulator bus to downtown or the University of Vermont. You can also call a cab or even a private limousine. Plus, since the airport is just three miles from town, you’ll be near the excitement if you book one of the hotels near Burlington International. If you’re feeling fancy, settle in on the lakefront for breathtaking views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains. No matter where you stay, you’ll feel liberated as you pedal the bike path in Waterfront Park, snap on the cross-country skis, or hike through the eerie “burled forest.”
