A large park along the Winooski River in Burlington featuring numerous wildlife species and elevated boardwalk trails, as well as Ethan and Fanny Allen's restored 1787 farmhouse--the historic home of Vermont's founder Ethan Allen and his wife, Fanny.

Just a short drive from downtown Burlington, the Homestead offers hands-on history, spectacular scenery, and riverside picnic areas and walks. The Homestead provides a genuine slice of 18th century life, and an intimate look at Vermont's most colorful - and controversial founder.

    "This is a tiny little museum but worth the time to visit. My children and I loved seeing the old artifacts and the home. Open hours are somewhat sparse but the trails surrounding are some of the best Burlington has to offer."
