Waterbury has some really good restaurants -The Alchemist and a new Thai place that is supposed to be great, along with Hen of the Woods. There is a large supermarket (Shaws). Waterbury's population according to the 2000 census was 4900. If you are applying for a job with WDEV, they are a very well respected and popular radio station here in northern Vermont.

Weird, City Data list the population as 1700 and change (http://www.city-data.com/city/Waterbury-Vermont.html) but the US Census lists it as 5348

The 1700 number might be the village of Waterbury (the downtown area). The 5300 would be for the whole town.

The Shaws supermarket is huge and has probably anything and everything you could possibly need...I also like that they carry locally sourced products as well as national brands. As Vter said, there are very many good restaurants in the area...I don't know too much about the schools except that they aren't bad - sorry, not much help. It's a great location if you like to ski - you'll be close to Stowe, Bolton and the MRV. And heading to Burlington won't be so bad either.

Default Waterbury village might be a better fit if you don't have a car

The GMTA shuttle runs through Waterbury Center, but it makes its last run around dinner time. Plus, I've noticed people waiting for what seems like a long time to catch a ride.

I personally think it would be very difficult to live in the area without a car, especially on the weekends. I do know two people who don't drive to help cut down on global warming; one hitch-hikes everywhere and one rides his bike pretty much year round. They both are young and single and manage to do O.K., but these aren't viable opitons for everyone.

If you are going to be carless, I would consider living in Waterbury village. It's a really cute town and very walkable with great restaurants, a nice cafe, a good brewery, a small supermarket, a large drug and variety store, hair salons, etc. I also think it would be easier to catch the GMTA shuttle there since there are a lot of people who wait for it near the state office complex and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters.

If you do have a car, Waterbury Center is great. I rented a house there for a year when I first moved to Vermont and really enjoyed the Maple Street neighborhood.

The state of Vermont Office Complex. Nearly all of the admistrative functions of the state are run out of Waterbury. It's a very busy place during the day. It's a sweet little town, though. I'm seriously considering it (and it's surrounds) for my upcoming move.
