What are the best things about living in Vermont?

Can we even count them on one hand? Nope! But a few that come to mind 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 reside 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 stereotypes are there about Vermont?

One stereotype about Vermont is that there’s not much else in our state save mountains, forests, lakes, and more nature. There is also the stereotype that VT is only a holiday destination spot for people from big cities like New York, Boston, and Montreal. Some other obvious stereotypes are that we never have a spring season (mud season) or that our winters last longer than half a year, or that everyone is a ski bum and loves maple syrup (this last one is actually pretty true of Vermonters). In reality, though, Vermont has much more to offer than just cold temperatures and nature spots (see above).

What is the most scenic town in Vermont?

Answering this question is a challenge for there are so many beautiful towns in Vermont. And giving an answer will surely lead to disappointing some while flattering others. But with that said, here are the five most scenic towns in Vermont: 1. Manchester; 2. Woodstock; 3. Grafton; 4. Stowe; 5. Shelburne. Of course, there are many other scenic and worthy towns to visit.
