Battery Park is a major attraction. There are several annual festivals at the Church Street Marketplace in the city center. The Vermont City Marathon and a boxing tournament are held annually.

History and culture

In 1775 settlers began clearing land in the area and organizing a village, but settlement was delayed by the outbreak of the American War of Independence that year. During the British-American War of 1812, there were several matches between batteries on land and British warships on the lake.

The location at Lake Champlain made Burlington a port and trade town especially after the opening of canals in 1823, 1825 and 1843. Burlington gained city status in 1865 and has many historic buildings. A large ravine was replenished with waste in the 19th century so that the area of ​​the city was expanded.
