Burlington, VT

Family traditions in Vermont spanned winter, spring, summer, and fall. We’d drive the six hours to ski, play tennis, and check out the Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory, of course. Now, Mike and I have started our own tradition of trekking up to Vermont each winter. So when we found out that our friends were getting married in Vermont–in the summertime, no less–we were thrilled.

We decided to take advantage of the trip up there and extend our weekend an extra day. With that extra day, we explored downtown Burlington, hiked 7 miles at Camel’s Hump (we will make it to the summit next time; I am determined), devoured Creamee’s soft serve, and watched the sun set over Lake Champlain with a glass of wine in hand.

A trip to Vermont in June was quite the reprieve from the stifling Charleston heat, and we had a chance to explore and actually see the sights without getting hypothermia. After this weekend, one thing is for certain: Burlington has my heart. But the winters are brutal so I could never live there…
