Another great reason to live in Burlington, VT is the famous bike path that cuts through the city, giving bike riders a safe and convenient way to save the environment and stay in shape!  It is a 7.5 mile paved path which cuts from Oakledge Park in Burlington and eventually connects, via a bridge over the Winooski River, to the Colchester Bike Path.  The ride offers great views of the Lake Champlain shoreline and the Adirondack Mountains.  For properties that would give you reasonable access to the bike paths, check out some waterfront homes in Burlington, VT and what's on the market in Colchester, VT.

The Skinny Pancake in Burlington Vermont is an excellent restaurant/cafe that serves up unbeilevable crepe creations (and more) in a cool atmosphere.  If you have recently moved to Burlington or are thinking or relocating, you should plan on stopping by as the menu includes everything from breakfast to dinner plus vegetarian and gluten-free options.  The restaurants can also be the site for interesting musical performances, like that of the Lumineers, seen below.  For those who are buying real estate in Burlington, VT, The Skinny Pancake has a few locations, including near some great Burlington Waterfront Homes and some nice Burlington, VT Condos.
