What stereotypes are there about Vermont?

Vermont is a wonderful state that has so much to offer, but some think that all we have is nature and wilderness. So, the first stereotype about Vermont is that there’s not a whole lot except for mountains, forests, lakes, and more nature. Vermont also has the stereotype of being the holiday destination spot for city folk. Some other prevalent stereotypes are that we never have a spring season and that our winters last half a year. In reality, Vermont has much more to offer than just cold temperatures and nature spots (see above).
