Located along the Winooski River, the city was once a booming mill town. The historic Champlain Mill now houses offices, the Mill Museum and Winooski Historical Society Museum, and Waterworks Food + Drink.
The newly redeveloped downtown area features Winooski Falls, an award-winning walkable neighborhood that mixes residential, retail, and public spaces. The red brick sidewalks and tree-lined streets add a warm feel to the downtown streets.
The growing downtown restaurant scene includes some very popular local eateries - taste some of the best breakfast in the area at Sneaker's or get your fill of macaroni & cheese at Our House. After you eat, take a stroll on the Riverwalk that runs along the Winooski River and leads to a wooded trail.
