Vermont is one crazy state, that’s for sure. Did you know that it was once its own independent nation? It’s one of only five U.S. states to ever declare independence, but you should be glad it’s part of the Union now. Now, Vermont is the leading producer of maple syrup in the U.S. as well as one of the premier sources for dairy products.
Vermont has a relatively humid climate indicative of New England. It has warm, humid summers and cold winters, which (as usual) become colder at higher elevations. This doesn’t stop many people from enjoying all that Vermont has to offer. When you come to Vermont, you’ll be amazed at the sheer beauty that is displayed on the sugar maple (abundant throughout Vermont) by its leaves turning all sorts of beautiful colors.
But despite all this, Vermont has seen its ups and downs. Vermont lost a lot of its population as many farmers moved west into the Great Plains in search of land and gold, and when they returned, they found something almost as good: logging.
But logging, too, fell out as Vermont’s forests were quickly thinning out and being destroyed. This destruction turned many people away from Vermont, resulting, ironically, in a boom in Vermont’s beautiful forests, and, as a result, the tourist industry.
Tourism is Vermont’s largest industry by far, contributing over 4 billion dollars to the state’s economy. This happens to be the highest percentage in the entire country. But when you decide to use an auto transport service to move to Vermont, you’re not going to be a tourist, are you? You’ll be living there, reaping the benefits.
In winter, too, is where the recreational skiing really kicks in. The big ski resorts of Stowe, Killington Ski Resort and Mad River Glen all open in the winter time and host skiers from across the planet. Also, many of those ski resorts also operate as summer lodges too, instead offering many other services as well as full restaurants and other services designed to attract tourists as well as keep people employed.
Summer camps are also common in Vermont, and for the true outdoorsman there are many things to do. Camping, fishing, especially for trout, hiking, boating, water skiing, and many other things help contribute not only to Vermont’s beauty but also help their economy.
But that’s not the only thing about Vermont that’s really cool. Vermont’s Constitution outlines broad rights for citizens, and even predated the U.S. Bill of Rights by over a dozen years. The Constitution also prohibits slavery (duh), many types of discrimination and of course freedom from religious persecution.
