BEACHES

SUNSHINE, SAND & HAPPINESS

Explore

In Chittenden County, there are a number of beaches. Sandy beaches. Beautiful beaches. It’s pretty much one of the best things about living here. Sometimes, the water level is high. Sometimes, it’s absolutely perfect. But sometimes, our beaches can close due to water quality. So before you head out for a lovely beach day, I recommend a quick check on the local lake conditions.
