a unique American state, bordering the Canadian province of Quebec. For a few years during the Revolution Vermont was an independent republic. Vermont has Lake Champlain (known for the Champ monster), the picturesque Green Mountains, snowy winters, cool people, clean air, and of course, its famous maple syrup industry.
On a Sunday I drove from Montreal to St. Alban's Bay, Vermont because I had never been to New England before. At the border is a sign that says "Welcome to the United States, Bienvenue Etat Unis". A nearby sign welcomes you to Vermont. I took a few shots of the Green Mountains panorama and the Champaign lake. I didn't see the Champ, however. When I returned to Canada the lady border patrol officer smiled when I showed her the bottle of Vermont syrup I got for my mom.

It seems that 99% of the definitions written on this page were written by people who never lived here, or where so stoned they forgot where they were. Just to clarify a few things:

- Does not have more cows than people.. It's not even close IDK why anyone thinks this.
- There are almost no Ben and Jerry's left in the State. They are all moving out b/c there isn't a good market here and they got bought out.
- People are generally nice. There are dicks too just like in any state.
- All the "wanna-be gangsters" (there are like 7 total) live on one street in Winooski. So the odds of seeing those people is .00001%
- The weather is actually not that cold. It gets FREEZING for like a month, but most of the time it hovers nicely between 60 and 90. There are two weeks in July that often go above 90. Imagine a temp difference of over 100 degrees, that's what it's like.
-Someone said crime is rampant. You might think that if you're coming from...... I don't know the Maldives. I sleep with my doors open.
- Cheese, maple syrup, beef, beer, and music are as good as advertised.
- It's extremely rural, but the state is so small that it's never a long drive to Burlington, NY, Boston, Montreal etc.
- People say everyone are hicks. Oh, except the fact that we have UVM, Champlain College, and Middlebury, three very good schools.
- People say everyone is a liberal. That's SO not true. In any part other than Chittenden, Washington, or Rutland County, it's like a 50-50 split.
Guy from Vermont: Hey you want to drive up and spend the weekend on my couch? We just got 2' of snow!
Friend from New Jersey: Dude Vermont sucks, there's nothing to do and everyone is a dickhead.
Guy from Vermont: Uh, okay. *hangs up phone*

Down to Earth, a land where you can get lost in the woods and not feel scared.

Cell phone service is very hit or miss.

Hunting is a way of life for most.

Cannabis is very prevalent, why not I say.

Home to one of the finest micro-breweries, Long Trail.
Many Vermonters are rabid alcoholics, guzzling BudLight, PBR, and micro-brews by the barrel... and hard liquor, lots and lots of hard liquor.
Home to the finest american cheese factory, Cabot.

The people that say there is nothing to do obviously hate the outdoors and can't stand the thought of there not being a club or mall.

Vermont, to me, is a misunderstood State.
Flatlander from NJ: The leaves are so pretty up here.
Vermonter: don't you guys have trees in The Garbage State?
Flatlander from NJ: Not sure. How does my tan look with the leaves in the background?
Vermonter: Somewhere between the color of a pumpkin and a carrot.

Saying: Im a Vermonta and I do what I wanta!

Optimist saying: If you stand on that stump over there you can get 2-bars of cell signal.

Wife: hey look, another car off the road, weather is bad today.
Husband: if the fucking flatlanders could learn to fucking drive they wouldn't be in the ditch
Wife: agreed

Disregard the cutesy stuff (maple syrup, skiing, cheese, ice cream). Vermont is a state comprised of 50% trust funders (wannabe hippies, skiers, political activists from New York state) and 50% hillbillies that serve the trust funders' every whim. Vermont sucks slightly less than New Hampshire in that it is not totally bereft of cultural diversity. Vermont is a great place to live if you are wealthy and can winter somewhere else (well except for driving up from Westchester county to stay at your condo for some skiing on occasion).
Like, dude, I had to spend $8000 to keep my 1979 Volvo 240DL running. That was almost a tenth of my entire monthly trust fund check. I thought that I might have to cut back on my weed consumption but Dad paid for it. I only had to renew my promise never to return to Pound Ridge from Vermont.

Once a proud, hard working, take no crap, thinking state. Now a high, hippie infested, welfare cesspool, thanks NY for kicking all your hippies out in the 60's and 70's they all came here and we were not allowed to shoot them so they stayed.
Welcome to Vermont, we don't do anything here, just sit in the woods get high and talk about how great it would be if there was something to do. maybe if we weren't all high we could get something done, i mean Sh*t come on even Montreal is home to the Canadian Space Agency. We could do something... but no it seems all we care about is food and snow. Lame. We will never have good jobs, or contribute to the world in any significant way.

i just moved here and it's pretty sweet. very liberal, howard dean was our governor, we are one of the greenest states in the US, and everyone is really nice. other things to find here include phish, ben and jerry's, maple syrup, and vermont cheddar cheese. the 2nd least populated state behind wyoming, and the biggest city is burlington (less than 40,000 people). the only state with a capital (montpelier got like 8000 people) without a micky d's. gets hella cold in the winter, like right around zero or sometimes below at night. kickass skiing or snowboarding. medical marijuana is legal here, and the state legislature is thinking about lowing the drinking age to 18. some bad things are that there is like no diversity whatsoever (about 98% white) and it's very rural (which can also be a good thing).
BYAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH
i live in vermont BYAAAAAAHHHHH

A state that can be good for some people and bad for others. For me it sucks, i hav lived here pretty much my whole childhood and it seems incomplete i think hunting, fishing, and skiing are boring as shit, maple syrup sucks, the only thing it got goin is cabot cheese and ben and jerrys (even tho its not locally owned anymore and was bought out by some bigass company) o ya and i like snomobiling, but other than that vt is filled with rednecks, hippies, wannabe gangstas and barely any hot chicks, i live out in the fucking woods in the middle of nowhere and if, tomoro, my parents said we were moving to an urban area, i would go berserk for the thought of having a night life...
Vermont sucks unless ur a redneck...
