Beautiful town. You can have country living but with a busy and thriving downtown area. Schools are good. Local amenities include a decent grocery store, local ski area and the Winooski River. Commute time to Burlington is 25 to 30 minutes. Williston is only 7 miles. Airport not far. Fantastic place to raise a family. Not the place to be if you are looking for nightlife, but Burlington has plenty.

Give or take, most places don't last very long in this area, especially if their food is too expensive and the portion sizes are small. Most people prefer to make their own food, as locally grown food is abundant here.
Again, since most places in the area are food based, and locally owned, unless you know someone, it's hard to find work directly in Richmond.
