As a bustling college town you can bet Burlington has several great nightlife options and our Forbes Travel Guide editors have searched the scene for the best spots in town. For those interested in performing arts, theater, music and dance performances are held nearly every night at the Flynn Center and occasionally at Memorial Auditorium. The live music scene here is alive and hopping at Higher Ground, about a 10-minute drive from downtown in South Burlington. Here you can expect to see indie and mid-level bands play in the intimate space known for its state-of-the-art acoustics. Smaller bands often play at the popular Red Square, a solid bet for a fun, lively night out.
