Burlington is a small vibrant city on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain tucked between the Adirondacks and the Green Mountains. It’s Vermont’s largest city with a population of just over 42,000. It’s a colorful city enriched with diversity, creativity, arts, music, festivals, shopping, eclectic dining, and brewpubs
It’s one of Vermont’s biggest tourism hubs, with attractions such as the Church Street Marketplace, South End Art Hop, Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, Vermont Brewers Festival, the Waterfront Park and the weekly Saturday farmer’s market.
For Burlington residents, the most appealing part is the city’s walk and bike-ability. There are four distinct residential neighborhoods in Burlington’s downtown area and all are within easy walking distance to Church Street Marketplace, the City park, and the Waterfront area where the vast majority of dining, shopping, and activities are focused.
The Old North End or ONE is colorful, eccentric, diverse, and rich in character. It encompasses the area between Manhattan Drive and Pearl Street on the northern end of the city's downtown. It tends to be the least expensive neighborhood to buy a home in and is the most heavily tenant-occupied area in the city. The South End is quieter with easy access to the parks and beaches on Lake Champlain. The Five Sisters neighborhood, within the south end is comprised of the streets Caroline, Charlotte, Catherine, Margaret, and Marian and it is very desirable for home buyers because of its mostly owner-occupied population. The most high end neighborhood in Burlington is the Hill Section, where you can find large luxurious old Victorians which have been modernized to fit today’s taste.
Burlington also has a suburban area north of the downtown area. This residential area is also primarily owner-occupied, known for its family friendly neighborhoods, good schools, and easy access to the Burlington Bike Path.
