Vermont - One of the six states that make up the New England region, Vermont has earned a reputation for friendliness, hospitality and independent thinking. Maple syrup may attract tourists to the state, but visitors stay for the beauty presented by the four seasons. In autumn, forests turn molten with fall foliage, while the sugared snows of winter cap the Green Mountains and the state’s many covered bridges. Spring brings maple tree tapping and sugaring off festivals, while summer allows for camping in one of Vermont’s state parks. Wine and cheese makers in Newport and Montpelier utilize self storage facilities for vats, cheese presses and fermentation equipment. Residents in Northern Vermont keep skis, poles, snowboards and snowmobiles in mini storage units when they are not enjoying Alpine or Nordic skiing at the area’s 23 resorts. Though Vermont is a landlocked state, the region has thousands of lakes, ponds rivers and streams. Along the shores of Lake Champlain, Burlington residents use self storage units to house their kayaks, canoes and motor boats during the snowy winter months. Vermont has over a hundred self storage facilities throughout the state.
