Pueblo has high crime, no?VanGar+Goyle wrote: ↑Fri Jun 11, 2021 4:47 amThe requires overlaying a political map with a climate map. Other maps including the tax map are more complex.1) mild weather 2) low crime rate 3) low/moderate cost of living 4) liberal organic living with focus on wellness 5) good health care 6) tax friendly
If you have to pick a state, then you may want to winter in Florida, and summer in Alaska, and
keep residency in the middle, perhaps your Colorado. This is not the classic snow-birding travel, but can get you what you want.
If you go by county, then you may go even more extreme: to winter in South Florida, and summer in West Baked Alaska,
falling and springing in small parts of lower Rockies: Colorado, Wyoming.
Most states have at least small blue enclaves, typically to oceanside or South.
Colorado is particularly picky, see Fort Collins and Pueblo, but you would want to avoid Colorado Springs.
To get this perfect, travel across the country several times, over several seasons, which can broaden your mind and expectations.
Also check the local news, either broadcast or paper, to get a feeling for the communities.
Fort Collins is just sprawl and the traffic on I-25 is a mess. Makes getting into Denver a migraine, at least for me.
Might want to look a bit father south down I-25 and consider a few places in New Mexico, although some parts have high crime and higher cost of living areas.
