We are moving. Any advice or suggestions would be helpful. My husband and I are retired and just sold our small resort in Mt. It's time to move on. We're looking for a slightly milder area, close to good health facilities as well as the typical amenties. We like more modern or contemporary styles. Thanks in advance for your insight.

Weather wise one isn't milder enough than the other to matter. I think Twin tends to get cold drops into the lower negatives more frequently but they also get their inversions blown out more easily so it isn't uncommon for Boise to be stuck in a freezing inversion while Twin is having "nice" winter weather. Either way I wouldn't make that your decision point.

Beyond that they're very different. The Boise area is much larger and more crowded and congested, but more scenic with the mountains and far more to do plus a good airport in town. Twin would be better if you want a smaller town with fewer amenities, but to be fair Twin has come a long way recently.

Both areas are booming and housing is in short supply.
