There’s hardly a better place to spend a fall weekend than Burlington and the Casa de Suna team knows the area better than anyone.

We talked to Anna to find out her favorite spots–and whipped you up the perfect weekend itinerary in the process.

Ask Anna:

How many days would you recommend spending in Burlington?
It’s the perfect place to spend a weekend.

What time of year is best to go?
Early fall. You’ll want to catch the foliage!

Is it a friends trip, or a couples trip?
Could go either way! It’s a versatile and beautiful place that everyone tends to love and appreciate.

If you had to choose one restaurant in Burlington for someone visiting to go to, what would it be?
It’s a tough call, but: Hen of the Wood.

Describe your perfect day in Burlington:
Start the morning with a light breakfast at Vermont Juice Company or head for a coffee and pastry at Onyx Tonics O Bakery is also a fabulous spot for almond croissants and olive sourdough.

Then head to Philo Trail for a hike and some beautiful scenery.
If you’re there on a summer Saturday, stop by the Burlington Farmers Market to grab lunch.

After your hike and lunch, you can head to Church Street to check out the shops and head to Waterfront Park if it’s warm enough.

For dinner, head to Pizzeria Ida–but remember, it’s BYOB!

Where to stay?
I would recommend booking a room at the Hotel Vermont! If you choose to stay elsewhere, be sure to stop by for a pre-dinner drink.

What are some kid-friendly spots?
Ice cream, of course! Vermont is famous for its creemees, which you can find all over, but Shy Guy Gelato is a CDS fave. And, of course, you can’t go wrong with a visit to Ben & Jerry’s.

In terms of non-food related activities, the Echo Center by the waterfront is perfect for young children and Shelburne Farms’ children’s farmyard and walking trails are unmissable.

Any final tips?
Burlington tends to be quite casual, so you can leave the heels behind! And bring comfy sneakers because you’re sure to do lots of walking.
