Welcome To THE Best Of Burlington, VT!

We start with About Burlington (immediately below) – what we call the nine pillars of Burlington – the features that make Burlington the best City in the world in our opinion. Whether you are a visitor to our area or a local you will find a lot of interesting information about Vermont’s Queen City that you probably didn’t know. We have tried to capture the things that make Burlington so special and convey them to you in a concise format so you too can understand and enjoy Burlington even more.

We would appreciate your assistance in launching this new web site. We will collect user reviews and post them to the site for those that follow as guidance to THE Best features, businesses and service providers in the Burlington area. And as an incentive to get you to write reviews we will give you a ten dollar ($10) gift certificate to the local business of your choice or 20% off a Segway tour of downtown Burlington (worth $12 toward a one hour tour or $19 off a two hour tour) for posting ten reviews to THE Best of Burlington VT web site.

Also please mention us to any local businesses you patronize. Tell them that you found them on THEBestofBurlingtonVT.com. That helps us out tremendously and tells these local businesses where to spend their advertising dollars.
