The Northeast Kingdom Is a Great Place to Live and Work

If you are considering a move to Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, you are not alone. In the past 10 years, the region has become a favorite spot for people looking for a great place to live and work, while surrounded by one of the world’s most spectacular landscapes.

Don’t just take our word on how beautiful our region is.  The Northeast Kingdom has been featured in the national and international editions of the bestseller “1,000 Places to See Before You Die” since the books were first released. “Here,” state the books, “thickly forested  hills of sugar maple, beech and ash give way to sleepy hamlets, one-church villages and gorgeous lakes – particularly the fjordlike Lake Willoughby, often compared to Switzerland’s Lake Lucerne.”

But we are far more than just a beautiful place to visit. Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom has traditionally been the state’s most reasonable place to start a business and offers a skilled, productive and eager work force. The region offers an enviable quality of life that is easily accessible to major market centers, interstates and state highways. The area, in fact, has been singled out in a number of publications for its quality of life, welcoming business climate, safety, cultural organizations and educational institutions.

Situated at the transportation hub of interstates I-91 and I-93 and U.S. Routes 2 and 5, the Northeast Kingdom features vibrant downtowns, prime industrial sites with development potential and strong local schools, college and tech centers. The region also is conveniently located to major markets in the U.S. and Canada.

Whether you are considering a long-awaited move to the Northeast Kingdom or would like to find the perfect place to start up that desired business, we will help you as you make those moves. Contact the Northeast Kingdom Chamber, and we will do whatever we can to make your move to the region one of the best decisions you have every made.
