Burlington is a place that has been part of my life since childhood. I went to summer camp on Lake Champlain in the early 1980s and used to take a Greyhound bus from Manchester to visit my sister at the University of Vermont.
I lived in Burlington for a brief time after college, and years later Dave and I became engaged while vacationing here in 2003.
Last week we sold our home in rural Chittenden County and officially became residents of Burlington. While moving is never fun for anyone, the transition has been an easy one for us. We downsized and simplified our lifestyle, and we are living in a community we both know and love.
Burlington, also known as the Queen City, is located in northwestern Vermont on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain. The city is home to just 40,000 residents and is Vermont's largest city. The city's restaurants, bike path and festivals will definitely keep us busy over the next few months.
More than anything, I'm looking forward to the spectacular sunsets over Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks.
