Leafing it to Vermont

We do love New Hampshire, but we're headed to neighboring Vermont this weekend to attend the jazz festival in Burlington. If you've never been, Burlington is a great place to visit. Lots of good restaurants, Church Street Marketplace (a pedestrian mall) in the heart of the city, and of course, Lake Champlain.

Burlington is known for its natural hippie vibe; folks here just seem to have a laid-back attitude. Did they invent the "green movement" in Burlington? I'm not sure...but it seems like they were tuned in to saving the environment long before the rest of us.

And here's a cool fact I learned on wikipedia.com: Burlington is the largest city in Vermont. But with just under 40,000 residents, it's the smallest U.S. city that is the largest in its state. That's right...it's the smallest of the largest.

While we're off to Vermont to take in some jazz, I hope you'll take out your bikes or kayaks and head to some of our favorite spots this weekend. You can find details right here on New Hampshire: Love it or Leaf It.

And if you do get out there, be sure to send us a comment and tell us all about it!
