Check These Burlington Spring Activities Off Your Bucket List
1. Eat in Burlington
Vermont Restaurant Week
Mark your calendars for April 20th-29th and pack your stretchy pants! Join us for the most delicious time of year in Vermont with 10 days and over 100 restaurants to sample. There are 29 in Burlington alone so you don’t have to travel far to get a real taste of Vermont – and the world! From Asian fusion, French tapas, American steak & seafood, to wood fire pizza, southern BBQ, tacos, and vegetarian favorites, you’ll have something to nosh on from breakfast to dessert.
Honey Road Restaurant
One of our must-taste Burlington restaurants has just been nominated for two James Beard Awards! Honey Road is a semifinalist for Best New Restaurant and its chef-owner Cara Chigazola-Tobin is in the running for Best Chef in the Northeast. You’ll have to experience her out-of-this-world Eastern Mediterranean menu for yourself. Open for dinner seven nights a week, and “Honey Time” happy hour 4-5pm featuring $1 chicken wings, among other drinks and snacks, be sure to include this in your Burlington itinerary.
2. Drink in Burlington
Bring your Lincolns and head to Lincolns! Located “somewhere off Church street,” this new speakeasy provides a fun adventure sure to make you feel like a local should you discover its location. Once you find this secret tavern, you’ll instantly feel like you’ve traveled back in time to our country’s early days when everything was simpler. This cash-only hangout offers $5 drinks, $5 bowls of chili and mac ‘n’ cheese, and $5 cover for comedy nights! The draft list consists of five brews, including local Vermont beers and Allagash Brewing White from Portland, Maine (home to the original Lincolns).
For our beer-loving guests, you must check out Foam Brewers and celebrate the foam! No two visits will be alike as their tap list is constantly rotating, as is their food offerings. In addition to their variety of beer, often inspired by the season or simply by what the team of brewers is loving at the moment, they have kombucha, nitro cold pressed coffee, as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic ciders on tap. You’ll also enjoy cheese and charcuterie plates, food truck cameos, and other local specialty snacks. Be sure to check their website to see what’s on draft, on the menu, and on the calendar.
