It all depends on what you do for a living and where/how you want to live. Healthcare, government, and teaching jobs are plentiful. They're giving incentives to remote workers. Rural areas are cheaper than Chittenden County, but Essex is cheaper than Burlington, so it's all relative. As far as crime goes, I used to live in San Francisco, so to hear people in Burlington complain about "urban crime" makes me LOL.
