Hey everyone. I currently live in Cornwall NY in the heart of town by the coffee shop. My question is what other towns along the east cost might I enjoy that mimic or are even better than Cornwall Ny?

I am kinda of a suburbs kind of guy. Don't like the city life, apartment buildings or tourists. I once took a flight to miami to check it out and hated it. So many tourists and congestion of people.

I am looking for somewhere to escape the snow, where I will like it so much I will not miss Cornwall and want to stay year around.

Appreciate your input and excited to see any suggestions.

Check out Hillsborough NC, just northwest of Durham-Chapel Hill.

Anywhere with mild weather, natural beauty, and a quaint downtown with cozy cafes is going to have hoards of tourists at least half of the year.

That said, St. Augustine, Florida was the first place that came to my mind. It has a charming historic core and lacks the plastic neon glitz of Miami.

Frederick, Maryland might also work for you if a place like St. Augustine is still too much of a tourist trap. Maryland has winter, but you won't see nearly as much snow as you do in the Hudson River Valley. Frederick is in the foothills of the Appalachians, which is similar to the Newburgh area in terms of topography, and you'll have excellent outdoor recreational opportunities in your backyard. Frederick has a charming, historic downtown, a civil war museum, and you'd be less than an hour from DC.

Fredrick looks nice for sure. I probably should have mentioned I'm looking to be at least within 30 minutes to the ocean. I would edit my original message but that option is gone.

It sounds like you're looking for a tourist town without the tourists.

Lol thats a funny point. I just don't get to visit the beach much living in update new york. I hate driving through the city ect. just to get to jones beach with murkey water. If I can find an area down south more without the winters and a charming town not too far from the beach I think that would suit me.

Perhaps Georgetown SC would be a good fit: https://www.historicgeorgetownsc.com

Check its crime rate though. Nearby Conway may be another one to check out: Welcome to City of Conway, SC
