If your junior high teacher taught you well, you know that Montpelier is the capital of Vermont. But what else do you know about this wonderful little town? It's the smallest state capital population-wise, and yes, it's the only state capital in the country without a McDonald's. Did you also know that it's home to a centuries-old maple sugaring farm?
