What places come to your mind when you hear the word "Cozy"? It can be a city, small town, an entire state, or an entire region. For example, when I think of cozy I think of New England. I think of small towns in New England. Even the city of Portland, Maine seems cozy to me. I would say that the states of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine all seem cozy to me. I picture myself relaxing inside in a small town in New England during the fall or winter while drinking some coffee next to a fireplace either in my home or in a coffee shop.

There is no right or wrong answer to this. It's totally up to you. Some of you might think of Hawaii or Key West, Florida when you hear the word "Cozy" so it's just totally up to you. Maybe it's the Oregon Coast for you.

Grew up on the hill leading into Ephraim, Wisconsin:




No chains allowed, all properties must be painted white or earthtones, old Moravian churches, sunsets on the Lake Michigan harbor, sailboats, Wilson's Ice Cream, etc. A lot of Door County towns would probably qualify, but Ephraim is likely the "coziest."

Any lightly populated area in New England comes to mind. The compactness of the towns and infrastructure only enhances the coziness.
