Milton is a suburb in Chittenden County, Vermont, United States. The population was 10,352 at the 2010 census. According to local legend, the town was named for the English poet John Milton, but the name most likely originated from William FitzWilliam, 4th Earl FitzWilliam, who held the title Viscount Milton and was a supporter of independence for the colonies during the American Revolution.

Burlington Bike Path

Converted from the Central Vermont Railway to a bike path in the 1970s, this easy trail crosses through beaches and parks and offers great views of Lake Champlain, the Adirondacks and the city.

My wife and I cruised this path from Burlington to the ferry. The Ferry was discontinued for the season. There was plenty of variety with views of the lake, riding through quiet neighborhoods and at the ferry landing there views of the distant mountains. There are a number of park benches along the path.

The wine was just ok. The portions for the tasting was barely enough to determine if you liked it, and it was the most expensive tasting of the wineries that we visited in Vermont.

Snow Farm Vineyard and Winery

Reviewed By bluedog1400 - Crestview, Florida

It was great driving through the countryside the short drive to the winery. They are very friendly and helpful finding the wine for you. The wines are all a little different from some you might be used to ( in a positive sense). $7 for tasting and extra $2.50 for ice wine ( which I would skip).

Grand Isle State Park

Reviewed By samls86 - Boston, Massachusetts

Grand Isle is tucked away on Lake Champlain VT and is a real hidden gem. Typical campground setting, fire pits and picnic tables, bathrooms and showers. You can choose between a cabin, lean-to, or straight up campsite with hookups or no hookups.

We like to rough it and this is a step up. All the amenities you need and a close drive to burlington to check out local breweries and sights. Hiking also available in the area. If you feel up to it and have your passports cross over into Canada!

Above Reality Inc. Hot Air Balloon Rides

Come float with us on a whimsical journey above the world below. One of our experienced and FAA licensed pilots will whisk you into the skies above Vermont, where you can take in all of the beauty that the Green Mountains have to offer. After about an hour you'll touch down and conclude the flight with a toast of champagne or sparkling cider, Cabot cheddar cheese, and Vermont fudge. Flights depart at sunrise and sunset daily, weather depending.

Reviewed By Misty W - Victoria, Canada

This was a bucket list adventure for me, and Jeff our pilot made our flight very special and entertaining. Safety was a huge priority. In spite of difficult wind conditions that gave us an extra long flight due to challenges with getting to a good landing location, we felt well taken care of at all times. And the post flight champagne, cheese and crackers were a lovely touch.

I highly recommend a trip here, it's a great value for the money. I like that you can go over the another movie if you don't like the one you're watching. They've got a mini-golf course and playground for the kids when they get bored. A decent selection of junk food in the concession stand. Overall a fun blast into the past !!!

Sharp Park

Reviewed By Jacqueline N

Sharp Park is absolutely beautiful and has so much to offer! We had an amazing time on the Off Road Segways with Rick & Ashley as our guides! They truly took their time and ensured that we felt 100% comfortable before taking us on the amazing tour of Cobble Hill. The nature trails are well-kept and easily accessible. There is plenty of room to explore on the 100+ acres Sharp Park has to offer. Sharp Park also sells Christmas Trees in the winter months, offers a snow-tubing course at an extremely affordable price and has a beautiful and modern, heated barn facility where they sell hot chocoloate and local knick-knacks. The owners Rick & Ruth also offer paragliding lessons from the top of the hill! It is truly a place that we could never get tired of. Beautiful and entertaining all year long. Sharp Park comes highly recommended! Thank you for the great memories and we will be back!

Waterfront Park

Reviewed By Douglas T - Ocala, Florida, United States

If you happen to be in Burlington, you must do Church Street and then come down to the Waterfront parks. There are ample parking locations available and it is a enjoyable walk along the Waterfront. There are also plenty of opportunities to sit on the benches and it just enjoy the scenery and opportunities for the children to get out and play in the grass.

A great location for taking a picnic with the family and enjoy this great venue. Wash rooms available .

Third time here. Always for business. The rooms are charming and clean. Hotel is Ideal for the business traveler working nearby because there are two restaurants, good internet and quiet rooms. The two restaurants do not overlap but complement each other; one with light tavern affair and the other with fine culinary cuisine. Enjoy the local brews at the tavern. The hotel has many amenities though I was unable to utilize them.
