Relocate to Burlington

Join us in the Greater Burlington area

Come for the world-famous craft beer; stay for the top-tiered public schools and thriving small business economy. Vermont is more than a tourism destination but a state with a high quality of life, a pristine landscape and dynamic workforce culture.  

With its small population, the greater Burlington area fosters ample opportunities for individuals and businesses to make meaningful impacts on the things that matter to them. We lead the country in both family life and safety, and have fostered a diverse community that cares about its neighbors.

Whether filling your lungs with fresh mountain air or watching the sunset over Lake Champlain, you are constantly reminded of Vermont’s inherent beauty. So why not make your favorite outdoor getaway or relaxing retreat your home? Make everyday vacation in Vermont.
