Vermont is home to more than 800 stunning lakes and ponds, including Lake Champlain, an aquatic gem we are fortunate to share with New York and Quebec. There is no better place to celebrate the partnership between local knowledge and scientific innovation than this lake that unites three borders. Burlington is a thriving and progressive small city, home to the University of Vermont, endless locally-sourced dining options, and a pedestrian-friendly waterfront. Visitors will enjoy scenic beauty and a wide variety of outdoor recreational opportunities.
