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.

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

Pros- Ben & Jerry's Ice cream, Vermont made maple syrup, winter sports, quietness, nature, mountains, Vermont teddy bear factory, and variety of weather.

Cons- Rednecks, driving extensive amounts of time to get anywhere, weather usually keeps people indoors, weather is extremely unpredictable, smelly farms, no amusement parks, slow drivers, only 5 total shopping malls (only 2 of them are legit), bad roads, hippies, expensive taxes for no apparent reason, no beaches, and very limited employment options.

To conclude, obviously there are many more cons than pros... but to many, the pros are enough to outweigh the many cons. To some, Vermont is just too slow and boring.

Also known as YUPPIE LAND. The "Vermont anomaly" is a case in which people convince themselves that a higher cost of living provides a greater quality of life. Those who work 1.5- 2 jobs just to keep up with the Jones' are subject to this anomaly. With Saabs and Volvos in the driveway one feels above the rest of society paying $300k for a home and land only worth about $100k. The real Vermonters consider these folks transplants as more than 95% of them are and contest that they are "Vermonters". Crime rate is rampant even "friends" in Vermont will try to make a buck off of you, and the schools aren't any better than anywhere else. And for open minded peace loving people they are are Dicks and are quite judgmental wondering why no others wouldn't want to move to Vermont. Well the reason is because of people aka douche bags, like yourselves. So when you are complaining of not having time or money or you're too tired ask yourself if your quality of life really is better. All Vermont really is is an overlandscaped New Jersey. How do ya like that?
Vermont is also known as upper Westchester........

Definitely not like how the other people have said. I live in VT and honestly it's boring. The people are all fairly annoying and the same.(no offense, just my opinion)The Winters are hell on earth. The only VT music act i've seen live or heard of is Phish. Smart people are hard to come by, most of Rutlands IQ is below the average December temperature. Oh, and Goshen has some of THE WEIRDEST people you will EVER meet.
Tony and Sewie Story as told by my cousin. True too.
Tony and Sewie were off to steal wadiator at the goshen dump right???
Tony: Sewie! wait here and watch for cops while *mumbleImumble* steal wadiator!
Sewie waits and waits and waits and waits. Cop comes up.
Cop:What are you doing here Sewie???
Sewie: I watch for cops while Tony Steal Watioaor!
Well, that's vermont for ya!

The most boring place on earth. If you take out Burlington we are all basically living like amish. Burlington is cool with the music, hippies, and weed, but besides that the rest of us are living like our cows. P.S. We are over populated and over run by cows.
Man 1: Dude, what do you want to do?
Man 2: We can go to the music clubs in Burlington!
Man 1: We don't have the tech to go to Burlington. We have never seen a car before.
Man 2: F*CK, I hate Vermont!I guess we have to spend all night milking cows.

Cloudy weather 364 days per year
Summer lasts from July 1 to July 14
State Animal is the Carpenter Ant
State Bird is the Mosquito
A whole state where nobody thinks, they just 'feel that....'
Food stamps and government programs are a way of life
Taxes through the roof, pay levels through the floor
If you weren't born there they hate you and make it no secret
The only state that is actually an Eastern European country
Thinks 'the eyes of the world are on them'.
Total state population less than that of many cities.
Women more masculine than some of the men.
Look what it did to Howard Dean. "YAAAAAAAAAGGGHHH!"
