Moving to Vermont
The name Vermont comes from the French words, "mont vert," meaning "green mountain." The region was first explored and claimed for France by Samuel de Champlain in 1609. Today people come from half-way around the world to experience the fabled color change of the leaves in the fall. The array of foliage color in the autumn is a breath-taking experience. Nowhere else on earth are the changing of the seasons so spectacular. Vermont will entice you every season, each with its own special beauty. Fishing, canoeing, sailing, boating, camping, skiing, or just strolling down a country lane are all available as well as music festivals, theater, and concerts by the symphony orchestra to delight you. You will be charmed over and over by your new home state, Vermont.
