As of June 1, 2018, adults aged 21 and older can legally possess one ounce of cannabis and cultivate two plants of their own in Vermont. 

If you’re ready to do some impulse buying, stroll around the heart of Burlington at the Church Street Marketplace to visit some of the 100+ shops located there—you can find everything from artisan crafts made by local artists at Frog Hollow, to funky clothing stores like Sweet Lady Jane’s. You’ll find a cultural community of gig-goers at ArtsRiot, an arts and music venue with its own restaurant, and get into the groove; if you visit on a Friday, grab a bite from one of the food trucks that come to their weekly Truck Stop. Once you’re ready to chill, visit Lake Champlain and mosy around the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center for interactive exhibits and stories about Champ, the monster of Lake Champlain (we’re not liable for any hallucinations). 

Whether you’re winding down in the evening or looking for a mid-day pick-me-up, stop by Citizen Cider for a flight of homemade ciders curated from fresh Vermont apples. If cider’s not your thing, you can grab a beer at the original Zero Gravity Brewpub, which also happens to be home to local favorite pizza place, American Flatbread.
