Burlington has it all. A fantastic lake with mountain views, an huge population of undergraduate students and academics, great food, a fantastic music scene, and easy access to outdoor adventure, including "The Best Snow in the East."

Great people make a great place even better. The Green Mountain State is as friendly—and pristine—as it gets. Nature abounds (and is not obscured by billboards; we don't have any) and each town and city has its own distinctive Vermont vibe.
