As Burlington starts to thaw from a long winter, the dentists and staff at Colchester Dental Group start getting excited about their favorite spring activities. Here are some of our dental team’s favorite things to do in or near Burlington during spring:
- Biking the Colchester Causeway – This exciting bike trail takes riders over Lake Champlain on a causeway that used to be a railroad bed. The fun doesn’t stop there, as riders have the option of boarding a small ferry to cross a gap in the causeway where a swing bridge used to be. Depending on if you live in Burlington or Colchester or how long of a bike ride you want you can either start the trail at its origin in Burlington or in Colchester’s Causeway Park.
- Sights and Animals at Shelburne Farms – Heading south of Burlington, members of our dental team enjoys visiting Shelburne Farms. While this is an active farm where you get to interact with animals, don’t let the name fool you. This farm is an estate that was created when one of William Henry Vanderbilt’s children used her fortune to buy up several farms and turn them into her estate. There are now several miles of trails to enjoy here as a well as a gorgeous garden overlooking Lake Champlain.
- Waking Windows and JazzFest – The music lovers at our dental office have a blast every year at Waking Windows in Winooski (try saying that 3 times fast) and Burlington’s Jazz Fest. There are so many great musical acts every year and this year is shaping up to be no different.
If you happen to see us at on the trails or at the festivals in or near Burlington, don’t hesitate to drop by to quickly say “Hi”. We hope you enjoy this spring!
