Burlington was green before green was cool, so it is no surprise that Vermont’s largest city is getting residential quality-of-life accolades from all corners.
Here’s a short list: In 2008, Organic Gardening magazine’s contest for Greenest Small Place in America placed Burlington second. In 2007, Country Home magazine put the city on top of its Best Green Place to Live in America list and CNNMoney.com named it one its list of Best Places to Retire Young.
Named a bicycle-friendly place to live and work and a great place to garden, Burlington’s robust collection of microbreweries landed it fourth in a top 10 list of cities for beer-lovers. It lost out to three spots in Europe.
You get the idea.
