"About two years ago, Paul Budnitz pulled up stakes and moved to Burlington, Vermont. Nothing unusual about that — this city of 42,000 on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain has long attracted outdoorsy young families. What is unusual is where Budnitz moved from: Boulder, Colorado.

But Budnitz, founder of the grown-up toy company Kidrobot and the handmade bicycle manufacturer Budnitz Bicycles, didn't care for the way his city was changing. 'It started to feel too Silicon Valley-ish — quite wealthy and getting more so,' he says. So he moved to Burlington." --From Men's Journal article
