You will be enchanted to attend any or all of the events celebrating Lake Champlain! I admire and respect this lovely body of water. Many times I fly in over the lake and feel the peace and calm the waters give to our small city of Burlington, Vermont. I've sailed on Lake Champlain for 25 years and still marvel at the beauty of the high peaks of the Adirondacks on the west and the distant view of Camel's Hump and Mt. Mansfield on the east. Where else in the US do you have a fresh body of water 120 miles long and only 3 miles wide with mountains clinging on the horizon?
Participate in the celebration! This weekend, July 17 & 18, in Vergennes the French Heritage days at the restored Opera House will be terrific. The Otter Creek Basin and other areas in and around Vergennes will be hopping with activities.
