Life in Burlington, Vermont
Nestled on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain and situated just west of the Green Mountains, Burlington offers numerous dining, cultural and entertainment options that many find surprising for a city of its size.
In the summer, activities enjoyed by our residents include hiking, kayaking, running, camping, biking and boating on Lake Champlain. In the winter, Vermonters have access to some of the best alpine skiing and snowboarding in the world. Cross-country skiing, backcountry skiing and riding, snowshoeing, ice climbing and snowmobiling are easily accessible as well.
Burlington may be the largest city in the state, yet it remains quintessentially Vermont. It’s a place that combines stunning natural beauty, cultural appeal with the charm and warmth of small-town America.
Thank you for your interest in our residency programs and we wish you the best of luck with your search to find a program that aligns with your interests.
