    Burlington is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts, families, and people with a passion for healthy lifestyles. Since Burlington is a college town, the nightlife here is great. Several incredible ski resorts are within a short drive and Lake Champlain is an incredible asset to the community as the lakeside is dotted with countless beaches to enjoy.

    The one negative aspect to the community is that the housing rates are generally expensive and the job prospects for entry level positions are somewhat low. However, there are some major opportunities in the healthcare and tech industries within the community.

    Overall, Burlington is a great place to live whether you are a college student or are looking to start a family. The community is incredibly friendly and the nearby outdoor experiences are unmatched in New England.

    Burlington, VT is a diverse city. Approximately 42,000 people live here and it is the most populous city in Vermont. It has good schools, a beautiful old performance art theater and is located on the shore of lake Champlain. There are farms nearby and great ski areas. It is a college town, as we have the University of Vermont, and Champlain College right in town. There a number of other colleges within an easy drive from town. We have very cold winters and hot summers. The closest large city is Montreal, Canada. Burlington is where Ben & Jerry’s ice cream was first founded.

    Burlington is a unique city nestled on Lake Champlain Through the use of Burlington Telecom, a city based telecom provider, they offer gigabit fiber to home internet packages which is something not every city has. Night life in Burlington is great. Church street, the central gathering spot is always hoping at nights and even more so on the weekends.
