What Cities Are Best in Winter?

If you had a choice, where would you want to spend winter? Do you like places that offer a true winter experience, such as snow, and cold temperatures? Or do you prefer to escape Mother Nature’s cold wrath and spend time on a warm beach or at least in a place that sees snow very rarely?

Personally I like a snowy winter, not a real cold one, but also think the best winter weather would be if it snowed from a little before Christmas until the beginning of February (that’s long enough!). But as we all know, weather doesn’t always cooperate with our wishes and wants.

In this year’s Farmers’ Almanac we chose our picks for the top 5 Winter Locations and Top 5 Summer locations. You can read the full article here, which explains how we chose the cities and why, but in summary the top five winter cities according to the Farmers’ Almanac are:

Key West, Florida  * San Diego, California  * Phoenix, Arizona  *  Watertown, New York   * Flagstaff, Arizona

Check out why these cities made the list (you may be surprised at a few) and then let me know if you think a different city should’ve been chosen.

Have a great weekend. Stay warm.

I was born near Watertown NY, in Alexandria Bay. What is going on in Watertown? I also lived in Fulton where all the houses had upstairs doors so you could leave your house if it snowed too much. I miss the snow. I married a Southerner and got stuck down here in SC.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
