Great cost of living ratio. Climate is good, with all four seasons, however winters can have periods of very cold temperatures and above normal snowfall. Access to high quality health care and education are excellent. Public transportation is fair and with the addition of Uber and Lyft, transportation is improving. Many community projects are accessible and there are many varied cultural, social, artistic, outdoor and activity options available for aging individuals.
