Saint Michael's College is a 9-minute drive from Church Street, the center of Burlington. A shuttle bus will go between campus and Church Street in the afternoons; public transportation is also easily available.
Burlington and the Lake Champlain Region offer the Green Mountain State’s largest and most varied assortment of attractions. In the heart of downtown is the historic Church Street Marketplace, eight pedestrian-only cobblestoned blocks filled with shops, boutiques, cafes, restaurants, and historic architecture. In April 1997, Burlington received the "Great American Main Street Award" from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The award honors efforts to revitalize downtowns. Burlington has also been ranked as one of the "hippest arts towns in America" by John Villani in his book The 100 Best Small Art Towns, 1997.
