In many ways, Vermont is the getaway state. As one of the country’s least populated, it’s the place to get away from traffic, congestion, noise and even visual assaults. You won’t find a billboard on its highways. They’ve been banned since 1968. In getting away from it all, however, folks find much that draws them in. Covered bridges, crisp air, 300,0000 acres of state-own forestland, towns with a Saturday Evening Post kind of patina and, of course, maple syrup.Read more about luxury homes in Vermont
