I'd love to live where it's colder. Have never been around snow so driving would probably be a challenge for me, but I can handle that I'm sure.

I like small-town living but crime and drugs are an issue even where I live. I'm looking for somewhere laid back with good values and good scenery. I'm sick of seeing pine trees and "swamp". Any ideas????? Thanks so much.

You might try looking at Noble County, Ohio. It's the southeastern part of Ohio in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, we have all the four seasons and we do get some snow in the winter but not enough to make it too hard for driving around in. It's a nice County, is the smallest County with a population of about 14,000, we have more horses and cattle than we do people and plenty of open space and the prices of homes with decent acreage are very reasonable, taxes are low also. This is one of Ohio's little-known secrets, so give it a looksee, there are numerous websites on Noble County....

The Finger Lakes and Adirondack areas are FAR and away the best places like that in the USA.
`Some of the most beautiful areas of the world,much less the USA.
