MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why are there no billboards in Vermont?

We have plenty of billboards here in Connecticut. Certain parts of Long Island are billboard free and places like Vermont have zero billboards. Why is that?

Vermont was actually the first of four different states to ban billboards back in 1968. The others are Maine, Hawaii, and Alaska. Instead Vermont uses travel information signs along the state highways to inform and guide visitors and residents. So next time you’re up skiing in Vermont you will now know why you don’t see any billboards.
