What are the best things about living in Vermont?

From this article alone we can see why food lovers might fancy a move to the Green Mountain State. In fact, there are so many wonderful things about living in Vermont. Vermont has access to pristine and natural areas and parks, organic and local food, environmentally and socially aware residents, friendly locals, and a relaxed and casual way of living life. VT is a perfect place to call home if you are okay with living in a little city or small town. If you love the outdoors and want to live a healthy and relaxed way of life, Vermont is simply one of the best spots to live in the U.S.

What stereotypes are there about Vermont?

Right off the bat, Vermont is an amazing state that has so much to offer, including lots of nature. So, one stereotype about Vermont is that there’s not a whole lot going on except for mountains, forests, lakes, and more nature. Vermont also has the stereotype of being the holiday destination place for city folk like New Yorkers, Bostonians, and Montrealers. Those from out-of-state think of Vermont as a little getaway, a charming place that doesn’t resemble their busy and chaotic city lives. Some other prevalent stereotypes are that we never have a spring season or that our winters last half a year. In reality, Vermont has much more to offer than just cold temperatures and nature spots.
