"When I was in high school I moved from the big city to a tiny village of 500 people in Vermont. It was like The Waltons!" ~Daphne Zuniga
I lived in Vermont until I finished my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Education. I left when I was 24 years old and moved to Virginia. I return at least two times a year to visit family including my 93 year old grandmother :) I love the lush green mountains and the seasons. I love visiting when there is a big snow storm! It's fun sitting in front of a fireplace watching the snow fall drinking hot chocolate, but driving on icy roads and getting bundled up - NOT so much!

While in Vermont I had many friends and family to visit fortunately I made it down to Church Street and the Burlington waterfront which I think is stunning this time of year.

Here is a picture of Ben & Jerry's ice cream which I think helped put Vermont on the map. Until they became famous people used to ask me which state Vermont was in.
I found some photos of some graffiti that I actually thought was beautiful. I am usually not a fan of any form of graffiti, but I thought this was well done and seem to fit in in the Church Street area.
Here are some photos of the University of Vermont which is my Alma mater.
The Echo Lake Aquarium is a great place to visit if you are in the Burlington area on the waterfront:
