    Nice place to visit.
    We arrived early on a Sunday morning so mostly all the store/restaurants weren’t open. That was ok because we wandered around and stopped to listen to music in the park area. Places started to open up so we walked the streets and started to shop. Love the closed off streets. Reminds us of a larger version of Ithaca Commons in NY.

    Nice collection of local shops
    We went there on a day where it was raining a bit, but the overall vibe of the place was cool. Many local shops, but also some midsize chains that maybe not a lot of people have heard of. Prices were a bit high throughout, but I haven't done this type of shopping since before inflation, so maybe that's the norm. I map of the stores and locations would be helpful, as we missed some on the side streets that I would have liked to go into. Maybe it was the timing, but we didn't experience the "dangerous" conditions others reported.

    Fun, cute, would recommend!
    Loved this stretch of shops! Fun to do if you have a few hours set aside! I'd recommend shopping and planning a stop for lunch/dinner. Just a few blocks from Waterfront Park! You can easily make a 1/2 day of this strip when combined with a meal, strolling Waterfont, etc.

    Nice Marketplace
    We stopped at Church Street Marketplace for a little shopping. This marketplace was four or five blocks long. There were several stores and restaurants. The street was clean. There were lots of tourists just like us. It could use a few more places to sit down and people watch.

We LOVED Church Street Marketplace! Beautiful buildings with wonderful small business’s, tons of places to eat & enjoyed the Christmas decor. They have a large parking garage located right amongst the marketplace with super cheap parking! We spent an entire day here and really enjoyed it! Lots of great shopping to be done here. Everything is easily walkable and all within a couple blocks. A fun spot to spend the day checking out some great shopping (more small business type shops VS chain/corporate types), tons of coffee shops (recommend Cosmic Grind!), Ben & Jerry’s, places to eat & see Burlington!

A lot of small older cities in the U.S. seem to have pedestrian market places. Burlington is no exception. Their marketplace is just as nice as any other I've seen. The usual collection of local and national shops along a pedestrian walkway four blocks long. At the end by Main Street is a park.

Our bus trip of Vermont sopped here around the noon hour. I think the heyday of this pedestrian mall is passed. Yes, the buildings are historic, but they retail offerings were slim and except for Saratoga Oil and Danforth Pewter none of the well-known Vermont brand stores. Even the restaurant offerings were paltry. Maybe summertime it would have been more lively. I won't return. A directory of the stores at the start of the pedestrian mall would have been helpful. On a plus note, lights were being hung for the holidays.

This is not a safe place to visit. Panhandlers on every corner and in the parking garages. Open drug use.

In the heart of downtown Burlington, Church Street is a pleasant pedestrian street with shops and some restaurants (and a few nut jobs). It was nice to stroll. If you’re visiting the city, this is worth a walk.

We visited early (9:00 am) on a Saturday morning in search of breakfast. Looked basically deserted except for homeless people asking for money. Disappointed. Seems to be the way of things in downtown areas these days.

Disappointing. Lots of sketchy people and one guy ranting and raving about whatever. Shops are nothing special either. Keep walking to lake and enjoy the views.

the concept was nice but it was a little too run down feeling, and I dont see a way to fix it up - I think it might be a lost cause.

No,music, no street performers, and the mall was not a bustling place. To be fair we arrived late in the day. The pedestrian mall looked a tired to us, A few upgrades and attention to contemporary decor would help
