Why Do We Live in Vermont?

As a real estate agent I am often asked, “Why do we live in Vermont.” “What do we do for entertainment?” I’m never sure why people ask. It seems obvious to me. Maybe those who are asking are city dwellers who can’t imagine living in the country and spending time in the outdoors. Maybe it’s just to rural for them.

Many of us have purposely move to Vermont for the quiet ambiance of its rural settings. We prefer country living to the busier, hustle-bustle of in-town living, and we are attracted to smaller schools such as those in the Chittenden East School District, and a slightly slower lifestyle pace.

Also, Vermont is known for its proximity to skiing and outdoor recreation. We have water and we have mountains. Some of the best skiing and snowboarding can be found at Smugglers’ Notch Resort, Stowe Mountain Resort, and Jay Peak. Lake Champlain, often called the sixth great lake, has awesome sailing and boating.

Here is a photo gallery that pretty much sums up why we live in Vermont.
