the view from the statue is great, and the campus is lovely, but I would hardly consider this an attraction. if you are within 100 yards it is worth a detour just for the view of the lake

Nice statue on the patio of Champlain College. Champlain the statue surveys the lake he is named for and the view from this spot on the hill is awesome.

Lovely momument to the explorer who explored Lake Champlain, Burlington, VT and Quebec. During his time, things were not written down so not much is known about him.
