Vermont Wrap Up



By Roger ~ May 28th, 2008. Filed under: Vacation.

All in all, Vermont has the most beautiful natural scenery out of all the places I’ve been. You’re constantly driving among forested valleys while looking up at mountains surrounding you. Plush farmland also often sprinkles the view.

In my mind, living at the foot of one of those mountains would offer a lifetime of healthy exploration. Imagine being a child growing up with a mountain beside you. The trails, the streams, the trees, the places to make cabins. Oh, my childhood!

However, unless that’s all you like to do with your life, Vermont is probably not for you. There are few attractions that really aren’t all that exciting to do over and over and over your entire life. Decent shopping, whether for groceries or at departments stores, can be quite far away. So can reasonably priced restaurants, depending on where you live.

It was definitely a nice, serene place to visit, but I would not want to live there. Next year I hope to be on to bigger and better places.

    Vermont has always sounded like a nice place to visit in my opinion, minus the cheese. Oh, and the apparent oddly dressed children used in their tawdry yard sales. Have they no shame?

    No. They will do whatever it takes to sell that old lamp and Billy’s clothes that he’s grown out of.

    I always thought because of the similarity to Vermont and vermin that it would be a less than amiable place. I heartily recommend Alaska, although there might be some similarity in inability to get places.

    I don’t need it any colder or more desolate than Maine. I’m good with saving Alaska for my last state to visit.

    +1 for Alaska!
