What are the best things about living in Vermont?

One paragraph cannot possibly suffice, but a few that come to mind immediately are: access to pristine and natural areas and parks, organic and healthy food, environmentally and socially aware residents, friendly locals, dog friendly, and a relaxed and casual way of life. Vermont is a wonderful place to live if you don’t mind living in a small city or little town, which for us, is one of the best reasons to live in Vermont – no large cities. If you love nature and want to live a healthy life, Vermont is one of the best places to live in the U.S.

What are the most unique towns in Vermont?

Vermont is home to many fascinating and unique little towns, many of which have a small town feel and retain much of their history. The small town of Brownington in the Northeast Kingdom is an historical and quaint little town, with 10 buildings dedicated to the National Register of Historic Places. Another unique town in Vermont is, well, not a town, but a city, our capital. Montpelier is the smallest state capital in the U.S. and has a charming and organic downtown full of restaurants and mom-and-pop businesses.
