I love Winooski! I am currently living in the student housing building at the heart of Winooski and I must say I'm glad I chose here to live in. The river and the walking path is awesome for relaxing and quick exercise routines. There are quality restaurants and food options close to each other. Most importantly it is close to the UVM campus if you're a student or work there!

Easy access to public transportation, cute downtown area but would like to see more added for things to do.
More inclusion of the arts, better public areas, year-round farmers market.
less high-rent buildings, more affordable nice housing. more pet friendly events and restaurants.
