I am a current resident of South Burlington, VT, and have lived in the city for five years. I would overall say my experiences of living in this city are good, but I can't say it is the best town for everybody. South Burlington, VT is a good place to find a job, and I was able to find decent employment working for Ben & Jerry's. This city has a large working class population, and I have been able to make some really good friends in South Burlington, VT.
The best areas in South Burlington, VT are near the University of Vermont. These parts of town have a nice young person vibe, and the university brings a lot of culture to the area. A lot of young people end up living in South Burlington, VT just to experience the college lifestyle even after they graduate. The area is full of really fun people, and I can say I have made a ton of lifelong friends just by living in this area.
