Burlington, Vermont

Planning a trip to the University of Vermont's hometown should definitely include a pilgrimage to Ben & Jerry's headquarters in nearby Waterbury (about a half hour drive from Burlington). Happily, the area also offers plenty of ways to burn off those pints of Cherry Garcia: kayak on Lake Champlain in the summer; hike in Camel's Hump State Park to catch fall colors; or wander around the Burlington Farmers' Market all year long.
