Hello Fellow Travelers!
When you are traveling, and especially when you are traveling alone, it’s easy to get caught up in the hype of famous places like New York City or Los Angeles.
But there exist lesser-known but nevertheless incredible destinations that should be on your radar too!
If visiting with family is more what suits your fancy or if travel solo has always been your thing (looking at all my fellow introverts out there) these five underrated spots will make for a memorable trip.
Burlington is a city in the state of Vermont. It has a population of 3,800 people. I’ve always found Burlington to be one of the most underrated towns in the US, and yes, it’s in America.
Burlington is located on Lake Champlain and offers tourists New England charm with a European feel.
This small city is perfect for those who enjoy nature walks and overlooking scenic landscapes.
The downtown area offers many eclectic shops for tourists to explore while enjoying the downtown cabaret scene.
