New York Times Article: 36 Hours in Burlington, VT


Ben & Jerry's Factory Tours

The Ben & Jerry's factory is only 30 minutes from the meeting site. Take a tour of Vermont's finest!

 

The Unitarian Universalist Society building at the north end of the Church St. pedestrian mall is the most photographed building in Burlington. There is a wide variety of restaurants along this mall.

 

A picture of the Spirit of Ethan Allen III at the dock. The dinner cruise is a 2-hour cruise leaving at about 6 pm. The Spirit III has 3 fully-enclose, heated and air conditioned decks. The ship was built in 1997 in Salisbury, Maryland. It uses two Detroit Diesel engines to cruise at an average speed of seven knots. The cruise will be in a waning gibbous moon for good photographs from the ship.

 

Burlington has many ways to get out and see nature. There is a hiking/running trail at the Sheraton. The 14 mile Island Line Rail Trail runs along Lake Champlain. It runs across an almost complete bridge out to Grand Isle! One of the interesting features along the trail is the Earth Circle, a mini-Stonehenge with a garden sundial in the middle.

 

Another interesting feature is the File Cabinet statue. Ten file cabinets welded to each other and carefully painted. It is on the road to the Earth Circle.
