Brattleboro is a wonderful town to grow up in. It is a vibrant and progressive community with a wonderful art scene and fantastic educators. However, Brattleboro faces a severe lack of jobs. It is also grappling with a growing opiate epidemic that has made the town less safe and more riddled with tragedy. Brattleboro is also seriously lacking in diversity, which does not make it an easy place for minorities to feel comfortable.
Small town with lots of opportunities to be involved in different organizations. Jobs aren't easy, but the community of people are great and resources can be abundant if you know where to look.
Brattleboro, Vermont is a fantastic town for a young liberal to live in if they prefer the company of older adults. I greatly enjoy Brattleboro because I am a young liberal who enjoys the company of older adults. Unfortunately Brattleboro is located in between the major New England cities and Canada, so there is a great deal of drug trafficking. However there is also a great deal of local art and artists, along with a strong sense of community and a push for local foods.
