A few weeks ago, I took some time off work. The plan was to eat, sleep, and do absolutely nothing. However, by the second day of my staycation, I was sick of being indoors, so I decided I was going to travel to a new city. Since it was an impromptu plan, I chose a state that wasn't too far--Vermont.
Vermont is known for skiing and other outdoor activities. However, I chose to go to the metropolitan city of Burlington. I absolutely enjoyed my time in this beautiful New England city. The people were extremely friendly, and everywhere I went, there was a warm smile to welcome me.
Burlington is a college town, so it was bustling with a lot of activities. From the colorful buildings to the serene Lake Champlain, there was something charming in every nook and cranny. Below are some of the pictures I took. I Hope you enjoy them.
