Reasons why Vermont is the best place to live

A Few Reasons Why Vermont Is Hands-Down The Best State In The Northeast!

If you live here, you already know that VT is the best state in the Northeast. From charming towns to extraordinary people, this little state sure has it all. Check out some of the reasons why we love it and be sure to add your own in the comments.

 

Low crime rates

Safety first! When you look at reports like this one in the Burlington Free Press about safety, Vermont usually tops the list among all other states.


Wide open spaces

If you're not one for crowds, then Vermont is the place for you. We have the second lowest population in the country, and even the state capital of Montpelier has less than 8,000 residents!
 

Location, location, location!

If you're looking for a city fix, New York, Boston and Montreal are all within driving distance.

 

Year-round outdoor activities

If you love to embrace the outdoors, skiing, hiking, biking, swimming and more await! Not to mention stunning scenery while you do it!

 

Community matters

From helping neighbors to our annual Green Up Day, Vermont communities are always ready to lend a helping hand.

 

Fresh Foods

Vermont has always been a leader in the farm to table movement, and fresh foods are available to everyone at the local shops and farmers markets.
 

Naturally fun

Vermont is full of great swimming holes which are a natural - and free - way to cool down on a hot day.
 

Endless hiking

You can always find a hiking trail nearby, no matter where you are in the Green Mountain State. Fresh air? No problem!
 

World famous foliage

Hands down, Vermont has the best foliage not in just the Northeast, but in the world. Yes, the world!

Museums

You'll find museums that embrace the outdoors and some of the most remarkable and unique exhibits here.
