Montpelier, Vermont

The capital city of Vermont, Montpelier is also the smallest state capitol in the country, with a population of just over 8,000 residents. This small town vibe is part of the reason why it was selected by AARP The Magazine as one of the top places to "live the simple life," the feel of community also makes this a top destination, as the biggest "sporting event" in town includes keeping tabs on the workings of the state legislature.

The town's eclectic crowd also fosters a bustling arts scene, routinely hosting music festivals and residents seldom feel like there is a lack of activities to keep them occupied, from yard sales to world-class skiing.
