Perhaps that’s a good thing. But perhaps the reason we like Vermont so much, is that it reminds us of the last place we called home. After spending ten years in Humboldt County, CA, we were ready for a change. But finding a small town near abundant natural beauty with an open minded population of young creative individuals has been a challenge. Until we visited the Green Mountain State, that is.
After spending time in the Burlington area up north, and visiting Bennington down south, we’ve discovered a lot of reasons to possibly call this place home. Discussions with both Vermont Natives and Transplants have pointed to somewhere in between the two regions we’ve visited as being an ideal candidate for relocation.
What we will do when we do plant roots somewhere is another story. Or another question, rather. But unlike Eureka, everywhere we’ve been in Vermont seems accessible, diverse, and within an hour or so of a substantial metropolitan area where one can get the big city fix. Even the smallest of Vermont towns that we have visited appear to have a sustainable if not thriving community. And as long as we stay away from any major tourist area, I would venture to add that Vermont land and real estate is still relatively affordable.
