I’ll be honest, I never thought about visiting Vermont until last summer. Maybe it’s  because I’m from Southern California and Vermont is literally one of the furthest states from California, or maybe because before moving to Oregon I refused to acknowledge anywhere that didn’t have 70 degree weather year round. Regardless of why I never thought about visiting Vermont, I had the opportunity to spend a day in Burlington, Vermont last summer. I didn’t have high expectations for this town but by the end of the day I was blown away at how much there is to do! One day is not enough to get the full Burlington experience.  But if you every get the chance to visit, even if it’s only for a day, check out my list of 5 things you have to do on your first visit to Burlington, Vermont
