Vermont is small geographically with a tiny population (621,760) to go with it. But what it lacks in size, it more than makes up for with a healthy economy and a beautiful natural landscape. Senior Living was created as a web resource to help you navigate the assisted senior living options in The Green Mountain State. We are an unbiased database of senior communities complete with peer reviews, maps, and informational articles to help guide you in your search. First, let’s start with some Vermont facts.
The largest cities in the state are Burlington, South Burlington, Rutland, Barre and the capitol, Montpelier. With a population of just 38,897, Burlington is the largest city. And it’s here you’ll find the most options for retirement care including hospitals and senior living options. The Vermont cost of living is 20% above the national average while cost of housing is 40% above the national average. There are no retirement income tax exemptions with the exception of Railroad Retirement. VA benefits are not taxed. There is no inheritance tax and the estate tax is only for estates valued at $3.5 million or more. Despite the high costs to live in the state, Vermont is quite healthy economically. The website 247wallst.com ranked Vermont as the 4th “Best Performing” state in the country for its low state debt, low unemployment (6%), low crime rate, and average household income ($51,618).
Vermont can be extremely cold in the winter with normal January highs at just 25 degrees. Snowfall averages from 60 to 100 inches per year. Summers can be hot and humid with the normal July high at 81 degrees. The fall with its changing of the leaves is quite dramatic and probably one of the more pleasant times for weather.
There are many cultural and outdoor amenities in Vermont to keep even the most active seniors busy year-round. And the great advantage of Vermont’s small size is the close proximity of everything within the state. The many festivals throughout the state include the Green Mountain Film Festival, Maple Festival, Dairy Festival, Apple Festival, Mozart Festival, Brewers Festival and many others. Would you believe there are 20 ski mountains in this little state? How about 76 golf courses? Want to visit Canada? It’s only a few hours’ drive from about anywhere in the state.
