Vermont is a beautiful, safe, and active place to live. Burlington, Vermont, has continually been voted one of the nicest cities in which to live as well as one of America’s most “fit” cities due to the four seasons of outdoor activities. Burlington is located on Lake Champlain, 45 minutes from world-class skiing, 1.5 hours by car from Montreal, and has an international airport with direct flights to many major cities
