Burlington is Vermont’s largest city and the economic and cultural hub of the state. 

Nicknamed the Queen City, it encompasses several distinct neighborhoods including the Old North End (ONE), the New North End, the Church Street Marketplace, the Waterfront, and the South End. 

Just 45 miles south of the Canadian border, Burlington is closer to Montréal than any major American city. It is also within a day’s drive of approximately 70 million people in the eastern United States, accessible by Amtrak’s Ethan Allen Express from New York City, and boasts Burlington International Airport with direct flights to 13 destinations.

Burlington is home to the University of Vermont, Champlain College, and Saint Michael's College. It's also HQ for global brands like Ben & Jerry’s, Burton Snowboards, and Seventh Generation and a launching pad for cutting-edge tech like Beta Technologies, OnLogic, and Greensea Robotics.
