Living in Vermont truly gives us the best of everything – room to move, fresh air to breathe and friendly neighbors all around. However, if you feel the need to scratch an urban itch, you can be in Montreal, Boston or New York in just a few hours. Depending on which part of Vermont you are headed from, the hustle and bustle of the city could be as easy to get to as the Long Trail. There are so many reasons to move to Vermont.
