Shelburne was the best place to grow up - very safe, friendly small town vibe. It is a 10 minute drive to Burlington, right on the lake and has a cute central area with small local shops and restaurants. Shelburne Farms is a must see.
Shelburne is a small, cozy town with a grocery store, a coffee shop and a few restaurants. There's really just one road going through it, north to south. When traffic is bad, it's kind of a pain, but most of the time it's fine. It's on Lake Champlain, which is beautiful. A lot of farmland.
I grew up in Shelburne and believe it is a wonderful place to raise children. It is extremely family friendly and a very welcoming town.
It is great place to live with natural resources . I believe you will not be against the place Shelburne when you plan to visit.
Housing is available, but toward the expensive side.
I have never felt unsafe in my town, even running at night.
Shelburne was the best place I could've possibly grown up in.
