Why did you move to Vermont?

It’s complicated, and it’s simple.

The truth is, everyone is here for a practical reason, but also a deep down reason. Maybe it’s to be near your family. You came here for college and never left. You wanted to work remotely, plus raise your kids in a safe and healthy environment.  

But there’s something else. Is it the spectacular landscape? The sense of independence? The more relaxed sense of time? Something about this place speaks to Vermonters. And now it’s speaking to you, too. 

What’s it like to live in Vermont?

We locals hear this question a lot. Vermont is a state of mind as well as a place to be. You can be you here. 

Depending on who you ask, you might hear rhapsodic descriptions of the pristine trails or chilly, deep lakes. Or you might hear someone answer, “It’s cold.”

Vermont is a place where you can pursue your life and your dreams. You can slow down with your family, or pick up the pace of your professional development. It’s local food, small towns, close-to-the-land, know-your-neighbor.  

Welcome. We’re glad you’re here.
