Vermont is a State Of Small Towns

Stowe VTDid you know that no town or city in Vermont has more than 50,000 population.  That means VT is a whole state of small towns! It is beautiful. Just returned from spending 4 days driving around VT and checking it out. Burlington has the University of Vermont and two other colleges. It has Church Street which is a great place to hang out and visit some nice places to eat. The Vermont Teddy Bear factor is there and not too far away is the original Ben and Jerry’s.  Burlington is located on Lake Champlain which provides some wonderful sunsets!

 Stowe is a mountain resort and this is a photo I took of the main street.  Right up the hwy is the gorgeous mountains and even more so if you visit during the leaf foliage season as I did.

I feeling after spending a few days is that Vermont is an absolute wonderful place to visit. Maybe even to live in during the Summer months.  But everyone I talked with said it gets REALLY COLD.  I bet it does with that wind coming off Lake Champlain.  So I have good memories of my five day visit and really enjoy it.  But I don’t think many people will be retiring there, at least not moving there to retire, because of the cold Winters.

 Any thoughts from anyone familiar with VT?


Dahlonega – Convenient to Atlanta

Located 30 miles North of Atlanta up GA 400, Dahlonega is at the base of the North Georgia Mountain.  For anyone moving from Metro Atlanta Dahlonega is worth a visit and consideration of a place to move to.   It is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet your could meet your Atlanta friends for lunch. With the way the growth is heading north, you should be right at home sooner than you like.
