Anybody Live In New England?

I'm moving to Vermont (For School) and I was curious if anybody lived around there?

Yup, watch out for the bears.
Trees too. Lot of 'em.

I have a brother in New Hampshire and I grew up in CT....

But Vermont is soooo beautiful. If you are into nature and trees and old houses you are really going to like it.

I don't live in Vermont, but I've been there. Vermont is beautiful! Except for the brutal winters, of course. But in the Fall, there's nothing like it.

You should definitely make the Ben and Jerry's headquarters your first stop. I think it's still in Burlington, not sure about that.

I've only been to Burlington and a few surrounding towns, but I'm sure the whole state has plenty to offer. Good luck w/ school

Well,

I"m from New Hampshire.

You're probably going to either middlebury or UVM, right? I know people that went to both. 3 at UVM, 2 at middlebury. Every one of them came back a STONER. Evidently, there's not much else to do up there. Pretty much same as NH. And it gets Bitch-ass cold up there...

But, on the plus side (or maybe the weed was the plus side. to each his own, right?), the state is beautiful, and the people, by and large, are very nice.

Oh, and Vermont is very different than Texas (but you knew that). It's the only state to elect a Socialist to the U.S. House, so you might imagine that people there tend to be a wee bit LEFT of center.

Anyway, good luck with school.


-Mike

I'm in Mass. Vermont will be a bit different than Texas, very cold in winter, if you ski, its the best state east of the Rockies for that, a lot of beautiful areas, very much what you picture New England being from postcards etc.
4th Avenue is the place to hang if you're going to school in the Burlington area.

I went to school in New Hampshire... if you like miles and miles of nothing but trees, lots and lots of snow, an extremely laid back atmosphere, and a bunch of aging hippies, then the region is the place for you. Live free or die baby

NOTE: Thank the Lord I'm back in New York.

I like Boston. It is warmer than Michigan in the winter.

Hewson, I always thought you lived in NH!

I really like New England, though I haven't spent much time in Vermont. I am spending a mini vacation near Snow Mountain next summer.
