Family Fun & Activities for the Kids!
School’s out for summer – or maybe you’ve decided to head to Vermont for a long weekend to leave work and studies behind for two days of fun and relaxation. You’ve come to the right place to keep the kids occupied and entertained – and you’ll find yourself hooked on Burlington’s myriad family activities as well!
There’s something in the air here, and you’ll catch a dose from the minute you breathe in our crisp, fresh Vermont air. Outdoor fun and staying active is a way of life for kids and parents alike here, and we know you’ll want to live like a local along with the best of us. Our trail-packed woodlands, crystal-clear expanse of Lake Champlain, inviting open spaces and public parks, fishing trips in a tucked-away pond, or even rock climbing are just a few of the wear-'em-out outdoor family fun adventures you’ll find in the greater Burlington area. A visit to the Church Street Marketplace is surely in order no matter the season, with street performers, fountains, statues, restaurants, and food carts is the perfect diversion for all ages!
Inclement weather, or just feeling like an indoor excursion is on the menu for the day? Interactive museums, aquariums, indoor water parks (yes, really!), plays and theatre productions, and family fun centers are plentiful and sure to please the whole family.
Festivals? We’ve got them – our festival calendar is chock-full of music and entertainment, Kids’ Days, Pumpkin Regattas, Farmers Markets, wine and food fests (if you’re thinking about leaving the kids with a sitter!), and winter celebrations make Burlington the place to be!
