They are so different, it would be easier to
tell people here what you are looking for, personally.
Im in RUT-land and if I had it to do over again, other
than not come here at all, I would have gone for
Brattleboro or WRJ.

Default Best VT Towns

Middlebury: Beautiful town with a great college there. I know it tends to be expensive in most parts unless you are way out in the mountains.

White River Junction: To be honest I have only driven through this town and stopped for food a couple times. From what I hear there isn't much going on and it might be worth looking at the neighboring NH towns. Lots of snow!

Williston: This is the area that I'm from and I love it! Williston is growing very fast and has some great neighboorhoods. Most people commute there for work since most of the large companies are there. A lot of fairly new resturants and stores have gone up in the last 3-4yrs and more are planned. The biggest downfall is the construction with roads being widened and big box stores moving in. The traffic can get bad. (in VT terms)

St. Johnsbury and Brattleboro I know very little about but I have been to both. St. Johnsbury has some very beautiful parts but also some VT hick areas. They do have a very good private school though. It's pretty lonely up there with 2hr commute to Burlington.

Why are you moving to VT? The Burlington area is beautiful and is growing very quickly. Williston, Essex, Jericho and Colchester are some of the towns around it and are all really nice. That's the first area in VT I'd look! Hope it helped and good luck with everything.

I'd put Brattleboro at last for natives.
Depends on what u are looking for. Brattleboro has artistic folks, wanna-be gangsters, left-over 60's hippies, few farmers left, some ?who knows what they are & not sure they do? Middle of the line folks just livin & doin their own thing. St.J is smaller & not so liberal - small town near there Lyndonville is great - that there has some real old-time Vt'rs. If ya move there better know u'r cows and be a hunter & eat meat. Many towns or most are beautiful like the whole state. I will say if you are not independantly wealthy people better take a good look at employment opportunities. VT is not cheap to live in the wages are not enough v. cost of living. Then seems the majority of people moving in are fighting industry so don't expect to see any good, steady, secure jobs in the future either. But there are lots of fast food joints - seems they have no problem with 100's of them!? If you have children or teenagers take what I say seriously cause the service jobs are given to adults instead of students. Only choice a lot of adults have with the industry being driven out. Wonder if that might be why drug selling is hot? A teenager has very small chance of landing a PT job & if he/she does they can be treated however because there are 25 people waiting behind him/her to take their job. Oh & the law in VT if you want to fire a person you do not have to have any - yes, I said any reason. The only protection is sexual or disablity discrimination. So if ya work for me & I don't like the way u'r hair looks - good-bye
