Vermont, one of the six New England states, is best known for our Green Mountains, recreational opportunities, entrepreneurial spirit – and arguably the best-tasting cheese and ice cream in the world. Our open landscape and pastoral views are one of the many things that make our state beautiful. The protection of our land has been managed through Vermont’s thoughtful environmental law, Act 250, credited with protecting the environment, limiting sprawl, and encouraging smart growth. That is why you will find no billboards in Vermont to clutter your view of nature’s beauty. Vermont ranks 49th in the country in terms of population, at 626,431.
Lake Champlain, the nation’s sixth largest freshwater lake, stretches 120 miles from the Canadian border to the heart of Vermont. With 54 beaches there are plenty of spots to canoe, sail, jet ski or just enjoy the views of the Adirondacks.
