Right off of the city's Main Street, the Waterfront neighborhood is a lovely place to spend the afternoon with the kids or your sweetheart.

If you do decide to grab a bite by Lake Champlain's Waterfront, bring your own goodies: the food stalls are a bit limited when it comes to dining options.

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.
