BURLINGTON, Vt. - It's known as the Devil's Den or more commonly, the Intervale Sea Caves. It's a natural wonder that can make you forget for a moment or two you're not far from all the city activity in Burlington, Vermont.

They sit within a natural area that's open to the public with a little walking but because they're only accessible by the water.

Because a cattail marsh is also there, it's really easiest to get to when Long Pond freezes over. When it does, you can stroll right up to the destination and even peek inside. Just be confident the ice is thick enough first.

Burlington Parks Director Cindi Wright says they're seeing more visitors recently.

She says a lot of folks seem to be tired of staying inside during the pandemic, and they're looking for a way to instead connect safely with friends and family in fresh air, where doctors say the virus is a lot less likely to spread.
