What are the most unique towns in Vermont?
Montpelier, our state capital, is a very interesting and unique city in Vermont. In fact, Montpelier is the smallest U.S. capital city with roughly 8,000 inhabitants. The city is also fascinating due to its small-town charm, lack of big box stores, and position in the mountains. Montpelier is the only state capital without a McDonald’s. Another unique town in Vermont is Barre. With granite quarries and odd marble statues, this place is particularly unordinary. The city is also composed of four small unincorporated areas, another unusual aspect of the city. For more information about the interesting town of Barre, check out this article here.
