Vermont is one of the six New England states. It was admitted to the union as the 14th state on March 4, 1791. Home to about 625,000 people, it is the second least populous state in the nation. Even Alaska has more people. But it’s definitely not the reason you should keep this state off the list of potential destinations.
For a place filled with small communities, Vermont is surprisingly diverse. Many creative personalities move to Vermont seeking the spiritual refuge the state offers. It’s not unusual for a wealthy author or artist, a buddhist monk, an office worker and a hippy couple to all be neighbors living within the same few miles. It’s becoming more and more common to meet Somali or Bosnian immigrants and transplants from New York and New Jersey in cities like Burlington.
If you decide to settle in Vermont, prepare for long and harsh winters, especially if you are moving from Southern states. Winter temperatures can drop to -34 F, and sometimes even lower. And snowfall in the state averages between 70 and 80 inches in the valleys and up to 110 inches in the mountains. Growing season in Vermont is only about 120 days, and Vermonters really know how to take advantage of it. Vermont has a variety of farms that raise fruits and vegetables, flowers and herbs. Over 500 of those farms are organic.
The Green Mountain state is famous for its beauty. And although, Vermont’s fall colors are nothing short of a legend, the state is equally beautiful in other seasons. In the summer, you can visit the romantic Osmore Pond in the New Discovery State Park or go hiking on America’s oldest long-distance hiking trail – The Long Trail, or explore historic Mount Independence. And in the winter there will be no shortage of places for skiing and snowboarding.
Main mode of travel in Vermont is by car. Hence, a vehicle pretty much becomes a necessity. If you are looking to ship a car to the Green Mountain State from anywhere in the United States, get in touch with Corsia Logistics. We guarantee efficient and reliable service anywhere in the country.
