We’ve got to hand it to Yahoo, nobody comes up with more “best” and “worst” lists than the search giant. This week they announced their “10 Winter Wonderlands Retirement“. Their chief criteria were the likelihood of having lots of snow on the ground for most of the winter, along with cost of living, access to medical care, and availability of other amenities.
Here is their list:
Salt Lake City, Utah
South Bend, Ind.
Comments: The Yahoo list is a pretty good one, although almost all of their choices are fairly good-sized cities. We definitely like their choices of Portland (ME), Salt Lake City (UT), Manchester (NH),and Burlington (VT). We might add some other towns that aren’t necessarily going to be white all winter, but have plenty of the powdery stuff at their doorsteps (very much like Salt Lake City, which rarely has snow on the ground although it snows and snows just outside of town). Those include Durango (CO), Albuquerque (NM), Missoula (MT), and Tahoe (CA).
Everyone has their own taste. Fortunately for those who love winter, there has been plenty of it this year. But for many others, their idea of a winter wonderland is not a cup of tea by the fire, but rather a round of golf or a day at the beach in South Florida.
