Montpelier, our state capital, is a fascinating and unique city in Vermont. In fact, Montpelier is the smallest U.S. capital city with roughly 8,000 inhabitants. The city is interesting due to its small-town charm, lack of big box stores, and position within the surrounding mountains and wilderness. Another unique town in Vermont is Barre. With granite quarries and odd marble statues, this place is particularly unordinary. The city is also composed of four small unincorporated areas.
