The first place that came to mind was Marquette, MI. They get alot of snow! I found a photographer's site that has a few really nice photos of the town for you to get an idea. (Lakesuperiorphoto (http://www.lakesuperiorphoto.com/Marquette_Mi/slides/_marquette_downtown_1.html - broken link)) It has a historic downtown with some interesting buildings, a beautiful courthouse, with the added benefit of a red lighthouse on a point, two ore docks (one working, one abandoned, both interesting to photograph), and the potential for big waves. There is also the dogsled races to photograph, if you are there at that time of year. I know you are looking for town scenes, but I thought I would add in those--a two-for-one type of deal!

I'm also thinking New England, but I don't know enough to really recommend places. Littleton, NH, maybe? I think I went through Middlebury, VT and it was very picturesque.

Anything along the Great Lakes would be good for snow.

The top two world record annual snowfall records are in Washington State at Mt. Baker and Mr. Rainier--both at nearly 100 feet. Is that snowy enough?

Find them on a map and start looking at the towns around them. Out there, elevation makes all the difference in the world, and which side (east or west side of the Cascades) can make a big difference as well. Rainier is a national park, so you won't be living there...

Lead Chamber of Commerce: About Us
Lead, South Dakota - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As the old man said! Lead, SD. About 2,800 peeps mountain town diverse scenery. Old buildings/homes huge open cut mine right in town and yup we just got 40" of snow on Monday, and more than likely we will have another BIG storm or 2 that dumps on us not to mention the frequent smaller ones. Temps in winter tend to be warmer here in the middle of winter than most of the northern mid-west too.

Pierre and Rapid City South Dakota. Heck, anywhere in the Northern Black Hills. Lake Geneva Wisconson would be another pictuesque one. Holland, Michigan.

Lots of places in the US can fit that description.
