My brother treated me like a tourist, showing me all the sights. For those of you who have never been to Burlington, it is a truly beautiful city right on Lake Champlain. Burlington Harbor has been completely redeveloped, much like Harbor Place in Baltimore, smaller but the same idea, beautiful vistas, town houses, shops, restaurants and places to walk and ride a bike. As a matter of fact, you can ride the bike trail from Burlington to just short of Canada. There is even a special bike ferry to cross from Vermont to New York. Burlington served up an impressive Fourth of July fireworks spectacle for 100,000 people just outside the brake water (where, once upon a time my Uncle Leonard ditched a jet plane when he was stationed at the Strategic Air Command Base in Plattsburg, New York, but that's another story).
