Unhappy help find the closest city to the one we'd want to live in?

- Small to mid-sized city about 15 minutes from a large(ish) city.
- Good police force (my husband wants to be a cop) either in the city or the bigger city
- Conservative
- With some land... (about an acre-1.5 acres)
- Not too hot during the summer, but not a lot of snow during the winter (if any)
- Not Texas
- In Western United States
- Fun museums/aquariums/zoos/parks for children (doesn't have to be huge and well known but fun ones)

Picky, picky. But someone has to know...

Sounds like you want a suburb of a central Californian city.

I was thinking that or Pueblo.

Maybe a city like Ogden Utah, as it is pretty close to Salt Lake City.

All places I'm considering

I just don't want too much snow :/
I guess snow isn't terrible, but I hate being cold!
I thought it was always snowy around Denver during the winter?

Cities around Portland? (Forest Grove, etc.)
Cities around Salt Lake City? (even Cedar City, UT)

Since you don't like Texas, how about a nice progressive place like Montgomery Alabama

Try not to have an open mind or anything......especially since at least 6 cities IN Texas would be the best for the other things you are looking for

I agree with Central California, however it gets really hot there in the summer as well.

No, only during nationally televised events! Look up the data on this website. Denver is not that bad...seems to exceed the national average in the fall and spring, but somewhat less than average in the winter.

Look in particular at the graph for sunshine!
