What are the best things about living in Vermont?

Although there may be some reasons you won’t want to move to Vermont, like for instance if you can’t stand the cold. But all in all, VT is a great place to call home. Our state has access to pristine and natural areas and parks, organic and healthy food, environmentally and socially aware residents, friendly locals, and a relaxed and casual way of living life. The Green Mountain State is a perfect place to live if you are okay with living in a little city or small town. If you love nature and want to live a healthy and slow-paced life, Vermont is simply one of the best places to live in the U.S.

What stereotypes are there about Vermont?

A few come to mind, and some were hinted at in this article, like mud season, not many chain restaurants or places to go out on the town. Some other stereotypes are that there’s not much else in VT save mountains, forests, and lakes. And others think that Vermont is only a vacation destination for city dwellers from New York, Boston, and Montreal. People from out-of-state think of Vermont as a little getaway, a charming place that doesn’t resemble their busy and hectic city lives. In reality, Vermont has much to offer.

What are the most beautiful hikes in Vermont?

The two most beautiful hikes in Vermont are Camel’s Hump and Mt. Mansfield. If you are interested in hiking Mt. Mansfield, we recommend taking the Sunset Ridge Trail; the trail is well marked and it’s easily accessible from Underhill State Park. Some other spectacularly beautiful hikes that are worth considering are 1) Mount Pisgah Trail, 2) Camel’s Hump Trail, 3? Lye Brook Falls Trail. Happy exploring!
