Nestled on the shores of Lake Champlain lies Burlington, a gorgeous city that feels more like a small town. Burlington ranks high in education largely due to the 12,000-student University of Vermont, often called UVM or Universitas Viridis Montis, which means “University of the Green Mountains.” On campus is a highly regarded University of Vermont Medical Center that gives residents access to top-flight healthcare access.

Livability.com has twice ranked Burlington among the Top 10 Foodie Cities in America thanks to its ample dining choices. Outdoor recreation options abound during winter, and in the summer months, baseball fans can enjoy home games of the Vermont Lake Monsters, a minor league affiliate of the Oakland A’s.
