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.
