It is a vibrant community with much to offer, including hiking, biking, kayaking, and camping. It is within an hour of Burlington, which is on Lake Champlain, and has beaches, boating, restaurants, entertainment, and an international airport. Vermont is known for its great food, cheese, craft beer, and art scenes. There is magic in the MRV and many people fall in love with the year-round activities.
