Senior Week & Summer in Burlington

Senior Week is winding down as the Class of 2016 prepares for graduation this weekend. We took advantage of Wednesday’s boat cruise to check another item off the 101 Things List: #54 Attend Senior Week.
Getting out on the lake got us excited for all things summer, so we put together a rundown of the best things to do in Burlington from now until September.

Whether you live here or are planning a weekend trip up, we’ve got something for everyone. If we missed something you love, share it with everyone by leaving a comment.
