Love Where You Live: Welcome to the Green Mountain State

It's true, Vermont is not for everyone. We're not known for high-rises and an all-night club scene. Our definition of sprawl is the arms-wide-open stretch enjoyed while picnicking on the lake. And you may have heard, it snows here from time to time.

However, these are attributes we love. If quality of living, the beauty and recreation of four seasons and a warm, welcoming community are what you seek - not just living, but thriving in Vermont comes easily. The Lake Champlain region is an ideal place to make a living, but also, it's an ideal place to make the most of each day.

With the beautiful and outdoors-action-packed backdrop of the Green Mountains and Lake Champlain, Vermont tops many "Bests" lists and is frequently recognized for its livability and overall quality of life. The state’s relatively small population and land area make for easy community immersion as well as a postcard-worthy commute. Small town friendliness is met with a bustling college city vibe complete with a thriving arts and culture scene. Plus, there are plenty of opportunities to find an even more peaceful pace in the surrounding forests, farm valleys, mountain towns and lakeside villages.
