I am looking too, I need a change from all this heat we are stuck with in the South. If you are looking for beautiful scenery and cold temps, I highly recommend the following: A) Upper Peninsula Michigan probably Marquette or West of in the U.P. B) Up state New Hampshire-White Mts. area C) Vermont- Green Mts. area D) Rocky Mts states- CO, WY, ID, MT E) the Great State of Alaska The only problem of course is employment, small towns in rural areas don't often have many employment opportunities. Good luck with your search!

Buffalo, NY just came to mind. Winters are rather harsh there but I don't believe it gets very hot in summer. Several years ago a resident told me that population had actually dropped because of the cold.

Ah, but think of the occasional drive to beautiful Niagra Falls! Someday I'll see it.

Try Duluth. It's a small town (86,000) but feels bigger. It is cool year round. Highs ar ein the mid 70's in the summer on average. Although, it can reach into the 80's for a short time too. The city has a ton of outdoor events, 23 parks in city, a municpal forest, a hiking trail that reaches along the shore of lake superior north to Canada, groomed ski trails, a down hill ski hill that's actually pretty good for the midwest (Duluth is built along an 800 foot ridge running along the lake).
