Kim BorsavageWhere do you Live? Burlington, Vermont

Since: 2000

Why did you choose the city / state you now live in? Vermont is a pristine state where the citizens are respectful of their resources, both natural and physical. There is minimal ostentation in the state. Burlington is Vermont’s largest city (population of approximately 40,000) and is vibrant and diverse, and ideally located on the shores of Lake Champlain

What do you love most about where you live? Burlington has four distinct seasons (many who live here would like to include “Mud Season in April” as the fifth season). All seasons offer visitors and residents numerous cultural and natural activities. There is nearly always something going on in town. The waterfront was originally the hub for commerce, but is now primarily reserved for public use. There are ferries and themed boat rides, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding opportunities, restaurants and a large park. Guests and residents frequent the year-round Farmers’ Market. The city is built on a hill and offers stunning views of the lake and New York Adirondack Mountains. The University of Vermont is situated at the top of the hill and the residential community between the University and downtown area is known as the “hill section,” where the architecture is historic. The Lang House is located in the hill section neighborhood – three blocks to the downtown Church Street marketplace and in the opposite direction one block to the historic university green.

What is your favorite restaurant in your town? It’s impossible to choose. Burlington offers many delicious and unique options for all palates.
