Top Towns in US East & South for Vacation House?
Magazines love lists of towns that they think are hot new getaways. Latest list appears in National Geographic Adventurer's Sept. issue. Unfortunately, its list for the East includes both New England and the South, which doesn't seem to make sense.
For what it's worth: 4 top picks for places in the East:
* Brattleboro, Vermont (Photo shows $249,000 house offered by Coldwell Banker Bellville Realty)
* Boston, Massachusetts
* Islamorada, Florida
* Chattanooga, Tennessee
Runners up: Charleston, South Carolina... Charlottesville, Virginia... Plymouth, New Hampshire... State College, Pennsylvania... Blue Hill, Maine... Lenoir, North Carolina... Avalon, New Jersey... Salisbury, Maryland... Saranac Lake, New York
How can you lump a chilly metropolis (Boston) with a warm-weather resort in the Florida Keys (Islamorada)? By calling all of them the "next great adventure towns." The phrase is so broad it is meaningless. Agree? Don't Agree? Let me know
