Waterbury, VT has transformed itself as the beer capital of Vermont. One example: this building on Elm Street was empty following the 2011 flood and an auto parts store prior. Now it’s flourishing across the street from many beer-serving restaurants. Local business, local brews! #presinpink

    After visiting numerous historic towns in Colorado recently, it really struck me how they are dominated by mostly restaurants, breweries, and touristy nick nack shops–all mostly centered around tourism. Almost no stores for various and sundry–shoes, clothes, drug stores, wood working shops, hardware, etc. I guess because everyone buys stuff on the internet or big box stores now.

      Agreed, Chad. I often think about that. You’re right – most everyday “things” we can get anywhere, so a town really isn’t going to showcase those stores.
