Just because you are getting an amazing deal on an AirBnB doesn't mean you can't enjoy the awesome lobby and restaurant of Burlington's best hotel. Usually (surprisingly) not too busy to get a table. Monday nights is Trivia Night at 7:00 PM (where Arshad hosts a team: Talk Nerdy To Me)

This waterfront location offers amazing lake views. Live music, drinks and sunsets bring out most patrons. However, Breakwaters also serves traditional pub fair.

Some of the best Indian style food (although it is technically Himalayan) in the entire state. Hidden gem, with good availability even on weekend nights. Value priced.

This gem of a French food window on central Church Street is an amazing spot for pastries, coffee and meals at any time of day. During the summer months, eat on Church Street while enjoying the sights and sounds. Open from early morning thru dinner.

The Burlington Bike Path can be ridden, run or walked from Waterfront Park, all the way to the Champlain Islands (eventually you will reach a bike ferry that runs in the summer months). There are a couple of bike rental shops (Skirack & Localmotion), which I will link to in the guidebook. Here is the link to the Trail Map: https://www.traillink.com/trail/island-line-rail-trail/

Vigorous vinyasa is the usual pace for this hip downtown yoga studio. However, there are some great slow flows and restorative classes to be had. (Abbott likes to practice here when not attending Yoga Vermont.)
