The Lake Champlain

Following more than 230 miles of spectacular shoreline, the Lake Champlain Byways network connects for travelers the region's expansive blue waters, working lands, lush forests, and picturesque mountain peaks. The Byways 'Corridor' circles the lake, providing transportation routes that can bring you to the area's natural beauty and brilliant history via bicycle, boat, car, foot, or even horse or airplane.

Long ago the lake connected regional communities from Vermont to New York and Canada, but as travel changed so did this important link. The railroads of the 19th Century and highways of the 20th Century made water travel obsolete; the lake became a barrier that kept its communities apart. The Lake Champlain Byways Corridor brings these communities together again!

The Lake Champlain region is vibrant: From opera to dance, art galleries to artisan cheese, it's alive with every variation of culture and entertainment. For tastes that range from classical outdoor music festivals overlooking a scenic lake vista to old-time string bands at rustic town halls, the region provides a satisfying and uplifting variety of options. Follow the links below to explore the culture of the Lake Champlain Byway!

A landscape formed of lake, beaches, wetlands, rivers, valleys and mountains will make outdoor enthusiasts of every kind feel at home in the Lake Champlain Byway. Visitors with wide-ranging interests, from hiking to bicycling, fishing to stormboarding (and at every skill level) have a reason to visit for the fun of it.

Through centuries of agricultural pursuits ranging from apple orchards to sheep and dairy, and many industries of the early eras of the United States, the region has narrated a deep and wide history for itself. Burlington was a bustling port of trade, especially of lumber, and was important to commerce in the northeast. Mills sat along (and in!) the Byway rivers, and the story of transportation is read in the bygone ferries, trains, and evolving motor routes. Captivating personalities made contributions to the uniqueness of the region, contributing to local traditions and the larger story of America.

From the delicate fauna of alpine mountain tops to jagged, glacier-rutted shorelines, the Lake Champlain Byway showcases the creatures and forces of nature in a spectacular manner. Every visitor can feel like a naturalist in this setting, and the options to learn about the nature of the region are plenty at its world-class science center and museums.

The scenery of the Byway will charm you, take your breath away, and give you memories to treasure for a lifetime. From its cozy villages and country stores to the expansive mountain vistas and mercurial waters of Lake Champlain, it's both awe-inspiring and feels like home. View it from scenic motor routes, hot air balloons or gliders, a historic ferry boat, or even an antique train; the views are reason enough to visit!

Vermont is especially sensitized to the needs of people with disabilities and has become a leader in addressing the issue of accessibility. The Lake Champlain Byway site will highlight attractions that address accessibility with special focus or innovation.
