Essex and the Village of Essex Junction combine modern conveniences with laid back character. A picturesque Main Street and growing downtown commercial center are surrounded by walkable neighborhoods and open country landscape.
There is plenty to do in Essex - shop, eat, and catch a movie at the Essex Outlets, book a massage at The Essex Culinary Resort & Spa, take in a round of golf at Essex Country Club or the Links at Lang Farm, or head to the Essex Family Fun and Entertainment Center for some mini golf.
The Champlain Valley Exposition is also located in Essex and hosts hundreds of events throughout the year, including concerts, car shows, craft fairs, and the Champlain Valley Fair.
A nationally award-winning school system, safe neighborhoods, and a thriving sense of community make Essex an ideal place to raise a family.
