Northern Vermont is divided into three areas: Champlain Valley, Northeastern Vermont and the Champlain Islands, and the Northeast Kingdom.
Champlain Valley region is home to the largest city, Burlington, with a population of 60,000. Burlington has all the amenities of a large city, numerous colleges/universities, and the Lake Champlain ferry to New York State and shopping.
Northwestern Vermont is situated between the shore of Lake Champlain (one of the largest freshwater lakes in the United States) and the Canadian border. It is one of the most beautiful areas of Vermont, hosting picturesque scenery, unique shopping, and a wealth of recreational opportunities amidst beautiful farmland and within close proximity to Montreal, Canada.
The Northeast Kingdom of Vermont stretches from above Montpelier up to the Canadian border. The scenery is worth the drive through and you will find cows and horses dotting the green hillsides.
