When you're in the mood for a show, look no further than the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts. Originally opened in 1930, the Flynn serves as the cultural pulse of Burlington, showcasing everything from a live ballet performance one night to a mariachi band the next. Among the local groups that call the Flynn home are the Vermont Symphony Orchestra and the Vermont Youth Orchestra.

Past visitors appreciated the venue, complete with its old-fashioned marquee and art deco interior.

You'll find the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts on Main Street, less than a 5-minute walk from the Church Street Marketplace. The center puts on performances year-round, but showtimes vary. For more information, including tickets and schedule of the diverse acts that pass through the Flynn, check out the website.

#1 Shelburne Museum

From weathervanes, quilts and American art to transplanted 1950s-era homes, a railroad station and a fully outfitted steamboat, the Shelburne Museum really does have a little of everything on display. Nearly 40 buildings, filled with various exhibits, span the museum's 45 acres. There's even a respectable collection of impressionist paintings, featuring the works of Degas, Cassatt, Manet and Monet.

Recent visitors were equally impressed with the museum's artifacts as they were with its grounds. You can spend hours learning about the exquisite displays and buildings, but also mosey along the grounds simply taking in the beautiful scenery.
