Brattleboro is a very small town, something that I am not used to but it's cute. It's quiet for the most part, they have a GREAT brewery called Whetstone Station that has live music and trivia nights! It's also very close to bigger cities which is super convenient
Review Brattleboro
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 very artsy, nice co-op, family friendly, nice local scene. Schools are decent, but could use improvements. Overall I enjoyed growing up here I but now I feel I have outgrown the town.
