This little college town that borders Lake Champlain is everything one would expect from a New England town ... and more! When my daughter announced she would be attending college there, I was thrilled! Having visited the town a few times to visit a friends daughter, I knew of some of its charms already. The fact it overlooks beautiful Lake Champlain would be enough on its own. Add in the fact it has a quaint village atmosphere. . . A downtown which is partly blocked off for pedestrian only traffic. . . Numerous restaurants and shops . . .  a population of eclectic people from students to professors ... and its got my vote as best New England town!  I love the fact that Vermonters are all about organic foods and "green" living. Everyone seems to be into something positive whether it is an athletic lifestyle, an enthusiasm for the outdoors, creative expression, whatever! So for the next two years I hope to be visiting on a regular basis. My modes of transportation will be changing (there is an airport here) as well as my dwellings (there is a campground close by) . . . You will be hearing a lot from me about this great town!
