Welcome to Northwestern Vermont. If you are not a native you are close to paradise if being in and with nature is appealing to you. If you only like to look, this state will provide you with many hills to look from, over sometimes vast expanses, sometimes only the next hill. There are properties on the water and properties on the mountains plus we have our small towns and cities for those that want to be closer to civilization and amenities. In my opinion Northern Vermont has it all and what it does not have, big cities, are as close as two hours away (Montreal). Boston is 5 hours and NYC is 6 hours from Burlington by car and one hour by plane. Our four seasons allows us to do many outdoor activities with the resources at your finger tips. Imagine living in the Burlington area (Chittenden, Franklin, Grand Isle Counties) and be able to within one hour, ski/snowboard, snowmobile, cross country ski, ice skate, ice boat, ice fish, summer boating in all forms with sailing and motor boating being very big. There are many marinas and destinations on a relatively benign historic lake that is over 100 miles long and 12 miles wide with access to Montreal and NYC for the more adventuresome. Beyond that is the Long Trail that meanders along the spine of the Green Mountains and continues south all the way to North Carolina and beyond. Biking and walking trails are becoming the new wave of how to get outdoors safely with some created around communities and some reclaimed railroad beds. Occupations include almost anything on the entrepreneurial level you can imagine to the well known, IBM, significant medical facilities, universities and colleges, and various resorts. A diverse climate awaits you on all levels.
