Travel Nurse Assignments: Live Like A Local – Burlington, VT!

Welcome To Burlington, VT!

A travel nursing assignment in Burlington, VT lets you experience New England at its very best! You can’t help but fall in love with trees that change color and produce the most amazing maple syrup, and don’t even get us started on the delicious cheese The Great Mountain State is known for. Burlington has a fantastic shopping district, tons of outdoor space to enjoy, and a nightlife that’ll keep you up way past your bedtime. When you arrive in the Northeast for your travel nursing job in Burlington, be sure to visit some of these spots that locals call home.

Around the City

Whether you’re looking to eat, shop, or just relax, Church Street Marketplace is a must-visit during your stay in Burlington. It’s been named one of the Best Public Spaces in America thanks to its historic buildings, beautiful walking areas, and unique retail spaces.


Looking for something to stimulate the mind? With 100 interactive exhibits and 70 different species of marine animals, you’ll certainly be challenged and find it impossible to be bored at ECHO Leahy Center for Lake Champlain. You can also eat outside on the covered patio or get in touch with your inner child on the outdoor lakefront pathway swings. Be sure to check out one of the 3D National Geographic movies while you’re there as well.


If you’re looking to enjoy live theater or a concert, you must visit Flynn Center for the Performing Arts. From Shakespeare to jazz, get your culture fix at this 1930s art deco theater. There are even classes for budding performers of all ages if you enjoy being in front of a crowd.

If you’re in the mood for a good ol’ fashion flick, whether it be a box office hit or a little known indie, you can find your next favorite movie at Merrill’s Roxy Cinemas. Their website provides film synopses too and you can purchase tickets online.

Food and Drink

Beer connoisseurs or casual drinkers can’t head to Burlington without visiting Magic Hat Brewing Company. With tours, samples, music and events, it’s the perfect place to unwind over the weekend.

Whether you’re health conscious or just in the mood for some fresh, delicious food, the vegan spot known as Pingala Cafe will quickly become one of your favorite Burlington eateries. They serve organic breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as gourmet coffees and craft beer. We recommend trying the ELT (the E stands for eggplant bacon). You’re welcome in advance!
