So I'm at a loss for which city I should relocate to. I have a relocation offer to Richford, VT and I'm debating if I should relocate to either Plattsburgh, NY or Burlington, VT.
Both seems like pretty swell towns. Rent is a whole lot cheaper in Plattsburgh than in Burlington which is a major draw to me. However, Burlington is closer to work and I could alternate between driving and utilizing mass transit which is a major plus.
This will be my first major move and I want to make it a right one. Therefore, could any of you give me any and all advice that will aid in my decision making?

Your best bet may be living in St. Albans(city), which is about a 40 minute drive to work. It is still in the Burlington metro, it offers close proximity to both Burlington and Plattsburgh and puts you closer to Montreal than Burlington does.

I apologize if this is too intrusive but I am so curious what is the job offer? I have little experience with small towns and it's so intriguing to me whenever I hear of someone recruited to a small town with no connection.

Anyway, I'm sorry I also cannot offer any insight into Burlington or Plattsburgh...to me Burlington has a hipper reputation but I've never been. I can say Montreal is an amazing city and I'd highly recommend visiting!

Thanks for the information. I just checked on apartments.com nothing available apartment wise outside Burlington. The airbnb listing were asking to much than I'm willing to rent per month. And I'm totally agreeing with you, the winter commute may not be feasible after certain distances. Hmmmm

It's for Customs. Lots of travel opportunities but I'm realizing most northern land ports are either and or isolated. And I totally forget it snows at most locations.

Especially if you aren't use to it.

Perhaps you could check other sites with apartment listings or outlets in specific towns/cities closer to the place of employment.
