Great place to shop. After shopping, find one of the many restaurants that appeal to you and just eat, drink and people watch. Not all restaurants appeared open but many were and it was a good selection of food.

There are a few interesting local stores, but the bulk of the shops appeared to be familiar chain stores, with an emphasis on sportswear. Not a lot of seating, and more shade would be helpful on a hot day.

Saturday in the common is a wonderful farmers market. Sample tastings of just about anything you can think of. You're sure to buy several things. Wonderful breads, oils, lunch stands, alcohol tastings,​ candies, giant homemade warm pretzels, salsas, etc...

Great place to stroll, second favorite area of Burlington after the waterfront. So nice to have several blocks with no cars, lots of patio restaurants, performers, a few benches for sitting, sometimes art work. Like any urban area, there are some issues with homeless and...More

Any suggestions on what to do in Burlington on a Monday in September? Sounds like downtown might be pretty dead. Am thinking about renting a bike or walking along the lake, but what if the weather is not so good? Ideas?

I would try Queen City Brewery, Zero Gravity and Switchback. Two on Pine Street and the other on Flynn Ave. My husband takes our dog for a walk and a pint in good weather.

Church Street Marketplace runs N-S for several blocks beginning at Main Street and ending at Cherry (I think). The two streets that run parallel on either side are Winooski (east) and St. Paul (west). If you're walking on... More
