Burlington and Saratoga

My husband and I (early 40s) are considering a July 4 week trip. We are considering splitting the week between Burlington and Saratoga. We are active, love good food and winne culture and interesting places. Will there be enough (or too much) in these places? Thanks!

There is plenty to do in Saratoga, the Hudson Valley (NY) and in Burlington. Take the ferry across Lake Champlain over the Burlington for a relaxing ride. In addition to the spa state park and other parks and gardens in Saratoga, there are many mansions and gardens (including the Roosevelt homes in Hyde Park) and pleasant river towns in the Hudson Valley region. You could check out a bit of the Adirondack Mountains on the way to Burlington. The drive along Lake George over to Lake Champlain is a gorgeous option.

Shelburne Farms and the Shelburne Museum are a couple of worthwhile nearby Burlington attractions.

I imagine there will be Independece Day celebrations in/around both places.

Have a great time!

Great advice from rjr!

I agree, there will be plenty to do in and around both communities. If you enjoy hiking, that alone could fill your time. If you enjoy biking, you may want to bring or rent bikes (Saratoga Battlefields, Warren-Washington bike path, and Crown Point). Also, July 3rd there is a great live show (love the Wood Brothers) at SPAC (outdoor amphitheater). There are some great breweries in Burlington. There will be fireworks everywhere in the area, but I highly recommend one of the steamboat tours on Lake George for viewing. Enjoy your trip!
