The No. 2 Coziest Small Town in the US is in New England
Winter time in New England is just another way of saying we all just want to be as cozy as possible until the summer comes back around. I don't know about you, but I'm constantly on the hunt to find cute places that will take the winter blues away...temporarily, at least.
Vermont just represented New England on Cheapism's list of America's Coziest Small Towns, ranking #2. Here's their reasoning;
"This charming ski town offers a number of recreational activities off the slopes, as well. Winter activities also include ice skating, dog sledding and sleigh rides. After spending time in the crisp outdoor air, enjoy a warm meal from one of the town's many restaurants — Stowe was once named the No. 1 ski town in the U.S. for foodies by Fodor's Travel".
One of my good friends is actually from Stowe, Vermont, so I'd go visit her hometown with her from time to time, and I'd have to say I agree. I think there's a place for Stowe on this list, but I also think there's more of a place for a couple other towns in New England that should have made an appearance here.
For example, Boothbay Harbor, Maine, is one of the quaintest little towns in the state. Most Mainers would agree. Just a few months ago, it was even named one of the best Christmas towns in the state by visitmaine.net. Boothbay doesn't have to be ranked above Stowe, Vermont. I'm just saying it deserves to be on this list (I'm unbiased, hehe).
