A lot of our visitors to our state think of mountains when they think of Vermont. Some of them think of rivers and lakes. But don’t forget about the Champlain Islands! While quiet in the winter, this popular area brings tourists and locals alike for a serene stay or an active afternoon every summer. Just a 30 minute drive from downtown, this great day trip is right in Burlington’s backyard! Check out our recommendations for a day trip -- you’ll find there’s a little something for everyone in Grand Isle County.
