Great small town close community! Everyone is always nice and willing to help out. Lived here for a few years now and love it. Close to a few major cities, but far enough away that you get that small town feel. Farmer's markets frequently with amazing selections of fresh food.

For a small town there is PLENTY to do. Affordable movie theater, an Arts Center that plays modern, commercial films, a good library, regular country & classical music concerts and a popular new pub w/excellent beers on tap. The K-8 school has problems, and drug abuse in town is a serious concern. However, the high school is outstanding, violent crime is nil and the community is very caring. Good homes are affordable. Did I mention all the outdoor activities w/i 20 minute drive?
Saint Johnsbury is an adequate town for a simple Vermonter who wants a decent education and nothing more. I currently live in the town, and it is less than exciting. The town has four or five local restaurants, and another five or six chains. The public school here is simply dreadful. Disrespect and low grades flow through the school more than the contaminated water that plagues the town. Saint Johnsbury is not good, but it is not terrible either. It is barely adequate. The town is infested with a Heroin problem, one that our lackluster police force is unable to deal with. Life in Saint Johnsbury is one of boredom, and subsistance.
