Vermont is a state in New England, bordered by Quebec to the north, New Hampshire to the east, Massachusetts to the south and west, and the Canadian province of Ontario to the northwest. Vermont is one of six New England states.
Including its name on official state maps since 1982, The Green Mountain State—a term coined by a farmer as early as 1761—is known for its mountains and valleys, and is sometimes referred to as the “Northeast Kingdom.” It also has some of the most dramatic scenery in the country; Mount Mansfield at 4370 ft (1341 m) is the highest peak in Vermont.
Vermont’s largest city is Burlington, the least-populous state capital in the nation.
The terrain of Vermont is very diverse, ranging from rocky mountains to heavily forested hills. The Appalachians extend into eastern Vermont; they are not high, but they run north and south across the entire state. Some progress was made in reforesting this area during the 1930s and several ski resorts have been developed in the area. Some of the best agricultural soil in New England is found here. The Green Mountains run across Vermont from west to east roughly parallel to the highest portion of the Connecticut River, which drains into Lake Champlain to the north of Vermont.
The state’s climate ranges from humid continental in the north to humid subtropical in the south, although the entire state experiences cold winters and warm, humid summers. It is milder in the winter for having some maritime influence on its climate; it loses much less snow than more inland locations of similar latitude in North America, and it is more influenced by the Atlantic Ocean which moderates the temperatures. Average monthly precipitation ranges from around 1 foot in winter to 4-5 inches in summer, with June being the wettest month. Snowfall averages 30–40 inches on higher ground.
