What stereotypes are there about Vermont?

Mud season! Unending winters and frigid temperatures, to name a few. Some other stereotypes are that there’s not much else in VT except mountains, forests, and lakes, or that we all just eat Ben & Jerry’s, and have Maple Syrup on everything.

What are the best things about living in Vermont?

We can’t possibly count the best reasons to live in VT on one hand, and that would take up too much space, anyway; so for the sake of simplicity, we’ll narrow it down to just a few reasons, which are 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 life. Vermont is a delightful 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., period.

What are the worst things about living in Vermont?

Vermont is a wonderful place to live, but every state has some negative components to it. So here are a few of the worst things about living in Vermont: 1. It can be frightfully cold in the winter, and our winters can last half a year, no joke. 2. If you want nightlife and other popular city activities, Vermont doesn’t rank so well in comparison to other states. 3. Vermont can be rather expensive to live in. Rent prices, groceries, and real-estate can all be on the pricier side. But these negative aspects pale in comparison to the reasons why living in Vermont is amazing (read above).
