Hi ya'll,

I'd like to find somewhere with a laid back friendly atmosphere. I really enjoy the mountains, but those aren't a necessity. However, I'd like an area with organic markets or co-ops, maybe even a cute "walkable" town. The town definitely has to have all four seasons and a good amount of snow would be wonderful. I would like to be within about an hour of a good sized city with a variety of shopping and restaurants. One with kinda an artsy feel.

Am I dreaming?

Northfield is a very liberal college town (Saint Olaf and Carleton Colleges). The downtown is pretty vibrant relative to its size (17,000), and we certainly have four seasons. Less than an hour from Mpls.
