Living In Vermont

   We are located in the most populated county in the state, Chittenden county, accounting for about 25% of the entire Vermont population. Chittenden County, Vermont consistently ranks as one of the premier areas in the entire U.S. in which to live and work. This is the result of a high quality of life coupled with a booming local economy. This world-class community is built around a naturally beautiful landscape that includes Lake Champlain (the largest fresh water lake after the Great Lakes) and the Green Mountains. These tremendous natural resources provide an unlimited variety of leisure time activities during all four seasons. They are also a major draw for Vermont’s booming tourist industry. Visitors to the Burlington area rarely forget the experience. Many are so attracted to the area that they relocate here to enjoy its benefits full time.

                                  


   Being the home of the University of Vermont, Saint Michael’s College, Champlain College, Burlington College and the New England Culinary Institute provides the area with a rich educational, cultural, artistic and ethnic diversity. These higher educational institutions help attract major employers and numerous others who are seeking a unique blend of quality lifestyle and high productivity for and from its workers. Vermont’s renowned Fletcher Allen Hospital provides excellent health care services to the region. Vermont also provides some of the best elementary and secondary schools in the country. For people seeking a high quality of life, there are few areas in the world that can offer what Chittenden County provides.

Like the array of foliage color in the autumn, the diversity of experiences visitors can enjoy in every season is difficult to match. Especially since they are every bit as authentic as the scarlet, gold and yellow of maple leaves. Of course, you have to be here for a while, or like so many, come back again, to fully appreciate the possibilities.

Maple syrup is the sweet harvest of the warming days as winter cedes to spring, and Vermont produces more pure maple syrup than any other state. Many sugarhouses are open to the public during the boiling season from March through April, and several welcome visitors year round. Maple syrup and maple candies can generally be found in local general stores, or at the weekly farmers’ markets held in communities throughout Vermont well into the autumn.

Spring, given its perennial association with mud season, is probably under-appreciated by visitors. Fishing season opens to the rush of snowmelt through the mountain streams and cyclists along country roads. The emergence of spring foliage, which softens the landscape in green pastels and splashes of apple and lilac blossoms, has a visual beauty that rivals the drama of the autumn. It’s an increasingly popular time for outdoor weddings, concerts, festivals and the first crafts fairs of the season.

Early summer basks under nearly 15 hours of daylight, encouraging the garden greens and fresh vegetables that will soon grace the menus of restaurants participating in the statewide Vermont Fresh Network. Vermont food producers have a well-founded reputation for high-quality products ranging from artisan cheeses to classic cheddars, fresh and cured meats, fresh fruit, berries and vegetables, micro-brews and local wines.

Performing arts events through the summer include the famed Marlboro Music Festival, the Mozart Festival, and outdoor concerts by the Vermont Symphony Orchestra (VSO), the nation’s first and longest enduring state symphony orchestra. These annual mainstays are joined by professional, summer-stock theater companies in several towns and a variety of performing artists in such venues as clapboard town halls, converted barns, natural outdoor arenas, circus tents, or restored historic opera houses and art deco movie theaters. Cheese Traders and Wine Sellers are long time donors to the Mozart Festival, annual donors to the VSO as well as the renowned Circus-Smirkus.
