South End Get Down in the summer in South Burlington VT

There's nothing quite like summertime in the Champlain Valley. Think lush green hills, bright blue skies, and warm sunshine. It is a time when the region comes alive. Rent a boat or bring your own and hit the lake. Find a sandy beach and jump in the water. Or paddle your way around it in a kayak. And after hiking our trails, road riding or mountain biking, or just chilling out, finish off the day watching the sunset with a creemee in hand. It’s what is known around here as soft-serve ice cream, only so much better.
