Vermont is a state in the northeastern United States, known for its natural landscape, which is primarily forested. Part of the New England region, it's also known for being home to more than 100 19th-century covered wooden bridges, and as a major producer of maple syrup. Thousands of acres of mountain terrain are crossed by hiking trails and skiing slopes.
State Capital: Montpelier.
Vermont state is located in the northeastern region of the United States. Admitted to the union on the 4th March 1791 as the 14th state, Vermont state is sparsely populated and the state capital Montpelier is one of the smallest state capitals in terms of population in the United States.
Vermont shares a border to the north with Canadian province Quebec, to the south with Massachusetts, to the east with New Hampshire and to the west with New York. The Connecticut River separates Vermont from New Hampshire.
Historically Vermont is a vigorous survivor in the earlier times in the United States. Millions of people visit Vermont every year and many non-Vermont residents buy second homes there. Attracted by the tranquility and beauty of Vermont's mounts and valleys, the rich heritage of Vermont pervades the entire state.
Many Vermont residents left to pursue better economic opportunities in the west and also cities in the northeast. On the other hand, many people who are creatively inclined are drawn to Vermont due to the spiritual refuge it offers.
Though not a major player in the mainstream history of the United States, the people of Vermont have a strength and sense of continuity that prevails today.
