Here Are The 16 Best Places To Live In Vermont… And Why

Vermont may be small, but it certainly maintains its position as one of America’s most livable states. We have country roads leading to historic covered bridges in pretty New England villages, the college towns are lively and Burlington provides besurban flair along the shores of Lake Champlain. Approximately 625,000 residents enjoy outdoor activities during four distinct seasons (five including mud season). Low crime, low density population and an above-average investment in education and environment are but a few highlights of why we love to live here. But what are the best places to live in Vermont?

While compiling the best towns to live in Vermont, we understandably had a hard time narrowing down the list. After all, every town in Vermont is wonderful, each in their own individual way. We ultimately researched many sites such as www.city-data.comquickfacts.census.gov and www.areavibes.com and looked at factors such as crime rate, housing costs (state average is $216,800), commute time, income (state average is $52,776), education and amenities.

Here is what we found, but we would love to hear your thoughts. Where do you live and why do you love it there? Let us know!

Be sure to let us know your favorite towns and why it’s great to live there. Share with your friends and see what they think, too!
