The Upper Valley is a great place to call home. Straddling the Connecticut River and bridging Vermont and New Hampshire, it has amazing opportunities for work, higher education, outdoor recreation, locally grown food, and the arts. While the region centers on a four-town “core” (Hartford and Norwich in Vermont, Lebanon and Hanover in New Hampshire) -- it includes dozens of towns, each with its own charms and characteristics.


The Upper Valley chapter of the Vermont Welcome Wagon Project is coordinated by Vital Communities, and advised by the Green Mountain Economic Development Corporation, the Space on Main, and the Upper Valley Young Professionals
