...and here's a site regarding "Sustainability" "Smartgrowth" etc etc etc which should help fill in the picture of Burlington if you're interested.

I saved the Local Motion site to my favorites. They just don't have things like this where I live. Like you said, I wish there were more pictures though. That's okay, it gives me more to look forward to seeing in person anyway. I will be taking lots of video and pictures when I get there. I also love to roller skate, so I appreciate these trails. And yes, they do appear to go all the way to Canada!

There are many great areas in Vermont, it all depends on what you are looking for when you live here. I looked at Montpiler, Middlebury, and Essex. I choose Burlington for a few facts that have been mentioned in this thread earlier, but also for me, it had the feel of community and city mixed. I like to be able to take public transport and be whereever I need to go, and yet I can eat things that are grown within 100 Miles of here as well. I chose this city because it reflected me and my family. I love the history here, as well as the history that we make day to day.

Sevdie -

The leaves are already starting to turn. I'm not sure I'd advise waiting 'till October to visit: Bare trees and not particularly scenic. "Stick season" is short but can be a bit dreary...Come for the gorgeous Autumnal colours if possible!

They're turning already? Wow. I don't think I will be able to make it before October though.

That bike path will be fun even if we're past peak colour. But have a look here
