Bristol Reviews

Fairly low population in a very rural area. Many people know each other, or mutual acquaintances. The Three Day Stampede is an outstanding example of tight knit community. It's a three day lawn sale on the rec field of donated items from the five town area homes. Very well attended, raises hundreds of thousands of dollars to support the search for the cure for Cystic Fibrosis, the event was started by a local family affected by CF and is run by volunteers.
Vermont is a generally safe, liberal, supportive, green place wrought with small, friendly towns. The biggest city is Burlington, which is a small yet eclectic and artsy place.
While this is a great town to live in, the state in general is very expensive to live in with so many taxes rising. It will be a hard decision in the future of whether or not to stay here or move to another state that has cheaper living expenses.
