Woodstock, Vermont is the quintessential New England historic town and is "regularly praised as one of America's prettiest towns" (according to NewEngland.com). It sits in a valley surrounded by low-lying hills, and is a community nestled around the Ottauquechee River. Woodstock is home to many excellent shops and restaurants, the Woodstock Inn & Resort, and a great middle and high school. Those who reside in or around Woodstock continue to be some of the most educated people in the world, and some of the most accomplished “captains of industry” in the country. Woodstock's history dates back for centuries and many hail Laurence Rockefeller for boosting the town's economy in the 1960s with the redevelopment of the Woodstock Inn, and the subsequent purchase of the Billings Estate. Today, the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park is a popular destination for hikers from near and far.
Hanover, New Hampshire
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, boutique shopping outlets, fabulous food, and more. Hanover, being home to Dartmouth College (one of the Ivy Leagues and the ninth oldest college in the nation), and in part due to its youthful atmosphere, enjoys a lively, 'New England cosmopolitan' business district. Hanover offers an incredible mix of activities from access to the White and Green Mountains to its arts and culture community not to mention the obvious intellectual benefits found in a college town. The Dirt Cowboy (pictured below) at the top of South Main Street is one of the best places to meet someone on any morning.
Norwich was recently voted as the #1 Best Place to Live in Vermont by Niche.com. The quaint and picturesque town has a population of approximately 3,400 people. Its close proximity to Hanover, and its many historic buildings and attractions such as The Norwich Inn, Blue Sparrow Kitchen, and King Arthur Flour, make it a very desirable place to live. As one New York Times article described, "With a main street lined with white clapboard colonial buildings and a landmark steepled church, Norwich could be a set designer’s rendering of a tiny New England village."
