Vermont "Cities" of note:
: Home of the University of Vermont
, and probably the only place to go if you want any sort of night life
that doesn't involve country music
: This is more of a town. It's so small, it wouldn't even register on most maps if it wasn't also the capital of the state. On the other hand, it does have a few quaint shops
, and is very liberal
: Montpelier's evil twin
. Barre is inhabited partly by rednecks
, and partly by nesting yuppies
. Not worth visiting unless you enjoy country music
: A yuppie's picture of what Vermont should be. Avoid the snapshot mountain town
with expensive dining
, but ski
here if you're into that sort of thing.
Rutland, Randolph, Springfield
, etc: Generally considered too far south and too flat to really be part of Vermont. They try to be Stowe, but the mountains aren't nearly as good.
