Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Don’t let the cold scare you away from this gem on the western shore of Lake Michigan at the mouth of the Sheboygan River. The waterfront is bustling and the people are first rate.
Abilene, Texas! How about that? Listed as an “affordable trendsetter with a diverse population”… and “haven for foodies.” Who knew?
Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Lots of tourists means lots to do in this area of the laid-back Florida panhandle.

Eugene, Oregon. Home of The University of Oregon, abundant culture, and Nike headquarters. Outdoor paradise. Lots of rain means lots of green and it does have 155 sunny days a year.
