Summer Stops Near Burlington

Ahhh — in less than an hour

Guests who stay at Archer Hotel Burlington not only experience our luxe digs, five-star beds and walkable Third Ave neighborhood — they also enjoy excellent proximity to some of New England’s beloved experiences. In an hour or less, they can be shopping, eating fresh seafood, discovering art, visiting a museum and on the beach in some of the East Coast’s disarmingly charming towns.

Here’s a short list of just a few of Archer’s favorite pastimes in these coastal havens, all close to Burlington.
