VermontKnown for its independent fervor since early American colonial days, today Vermont is a politically progressive state with widespread opposition to urbanization and chain store monopolies, and an active proponent of the environment and social services.

Despite, or because of, its "quaint" notions about big business, Vermont actively promotes communing with nature with a strong emphasis on appreciating its vast natural resources. In short, Vermont's economy is based solidly on a booming tourist industry. The state is famously home for world-class Vermont ski resorts such as Stowe, Sugar Bush, Killington, Jay Peak, Mount Snow and Mad River Glen in winter, as well as summer resorts and attractions in Stowe, Woodstock and Manchester.

In fall, yet more visitors are attracted to some of the Northeast's most spectacular foliage drives along Skyline Drive, Molly Stark and Woodford State Parks.

The least populous New England state - with a little more than 600,000 residents - Vermont levies heavier individual price than most states to fund its tax base, although some would argue that the improved quality of life makes it well worth it.
