Montpelier, Vermont

Vermont, with its unparalleled natural beauty and quiet New England flavor, has long been a haven for writers, artists, and outdoor enthusiasts. Its pastoral landscape and rural charm provide a retreat from the stresses of daily routines and urban life. While Vermont is known for its fall foliage and winter skiing, spring and summer offer a wealth of outdoor activities.

Montpelier, the vibrant capital of Vermont, offers a sophisticated but unpretentious atmosphere that is a hub of activity and cultural events. The smallest state capital in the United States is recognizable by the gleaming gold-topped capitol building (affectionately called the “bling dome” by VCFA alumni.) Montpelier offers a vibrant downtown life with outstanding restaurants and pubs, intimate movie theaters, four independent bookstores, and a variety of locally owned shops and cafes.
