Il Vermont is a state in the extreme northeastern part of the United States. Vermont borders Quebec to the north, Massachusetts to the south, New Hampshire to the east, and New York State to the west. The state is crossed from north to south by the chain of the Green Mountains, hence the name of the country itself, of French origin, in fact it means Monte Verde. Vermont is a small state and has just over 650.000 inhabitants.

The climate is generally continental, with cold winters and sub-zero temperatures in the mountains and hot but humid summers.

Historical notes

The independent soul of the state has always characterized the atmosphere of Vermont and influenced its historical passages. During the War of Independence, Vermont under the leadership of Ethan Allen manages to keep himself free from the British, even if on the death of Allen himself, Vermont passed under the United States after only two years.
However, Vermont has always tried to demonstrate its possibility of living free from other central powers, creating a traditional economy based on farming and agriculture with fields of wheat, corn alongside dairies for cheeses of all kinds and maple syrups. .

To visit

Montpellier is the very small capital, with just under 8000 inhabitants. The city still maintains an environment far from the consumerism of the great American urban centers.

Burlington it is certainly a more attractive city because it is larger even if it maintains modest dimensions that make it very livable, but above all it is located along the lake Chamberlain, a university center with a social life worthy of a larger city. It is cosmopolitan and full of activity, despite the serenity of a provincial town.

It is Central Vermont that is particularly striking for all those who like to enter the villages linked to old traditions, but also for winter sports lovers with attractive ski resorts.

In Southern Vermont you can still find towns that instead maintain a vintage 60s lifestyle, especially in Brattleboro. In this area it is also possible to hike among the paths created within the majestic and extensive Green Mountain National Forest.

A very particular itinerary is the one proposed along the VT100. It is a road that runs through rural Vermont and winds through gentle hills, small mountains, where you can admire grazing animals, even walking along marked trails. Along the way you can visit large farms and pass through small villages, the typical ones with wooden churches with white bell towers that dominate the horizon of nature.

Here there are also artisan shops where you can buy pottery or other country-style objects, as well as eat in rustic restaurants where products from the surrounding lands are served.
