Under $100 / North America

Start your day in Burlington with breakfast at Penny Cluse Cafe, a long-standing favorite that draws a line. With breakfast served all day, options include rib-sticking menu items such as the Bucket-o-Spuds (home fries covered in melted cheese, salsa, sour cream and eggs) and a variety of breakfast tacos. You can easily enjoy a breakfast here for less than $15.


From there, walk down to Church Street Marketplace to spend the morning browsing the boutique and indie stores. Even if you just window shop, you’ll find a lot to love, whether you like to check out local bookstores, galleries, home good boutiques or anything else in between.


Continue to enjoy the incredibly walkable downtown by going to Waterfront Park, where the views of Lake Champlain are entirely photo-worthy. If you’re in town on the right days, you can catch music and food festivals here.


Hungry for lunch? Retrace your tracks and stop into The Farmhouse Tap & Grill. The lunch menu includes burgers and larger plates for less than $20, such as the turkey burger topped with raclette, an onion compote, arugula and rosemary mayo, and the chicken salad topped with cheddar, almonds, cranberries and a cider vinaigrette.


For the afternoon, head to Fleming Museum of Art on the University of Vermont campus. Rotating exhibits combine art with culture and current events to tackle topics ranging from feminism to the refugee crisis. Admission is free.


If you’re willing to drive 10 minutes outside the city (or if you’re visiting during the short summer months when Fleming Museum is closed), you can find another museum worth visiting: the expansive Shelburne Museum. The museum features 39 buildings and a huge array of art across a broad number of mediums and time periods. Beyond the artwork, the museum also features circus collectibles, carriages and other historic artifacts. Tickets are $25.


Once you’re done with your museum exploring for the day, head back toward the city for dinner overlooking Winooski River at Waterworks Food & Drink. With its upscale, seasonal menu and variety of options for every specialty diet, you’re sure to find something you love. Make sure to check out the drink menu, too, for inventive cocktails. You can easily enjoy dinner for less than $40.
