Living In Vermont — You Can Have It All

Vermont offers you the chance to have it all—you can live in a bustling family neighborhood, a 200-year-old farmhouse on a quiet hillside, or just steps from the action of downtown. Whatever you choose, your commute is likely to be less than it would be almost anywhere else.

The greater Burlington area boasts many fine public schools and is rated one of America's safest places to live.

Vermont has been ranked the healthiest state by the United Health Foundation and Burlington is consistently included in top-ten lists for exceptional quality of life.

As one of the country’s most livable small cities, Burlington has a vibrant arts and music scene—whether you’re looking for concerts, galleries, restaurants or nightlife.

If you are a sports fan, UVM athletics features Division I basketball, hockey, soccer and lacrosse, while the Vermont Lake Monsters provide minor league baseball fun for the whole family.

When you’re ready to get active yourself, you can kayak, sail, swim, ride the bike path, cross-country ski or snowshoe—all without leaving Burlington. Ten minutes away, pastures stretch to the slopes of the Green Mountains, where you’ll find great hiking, mountain biking, skiing and snowboarding. A bit farther and you enter a world of small clapboard villages where clusters of cozy inns, shops and restaurants lie at the base of world-famous ski areas.
