    I read that average snowfall in Eugene Oregon was only 6 inches per year and the low temp is usually in the 40’s – not exactly a four season place for me.

    Columbia, Maryland! It can be a bit expensive, but if you can afford it, it’s definitely worth the money. It has 4 very distinct seasons, with hot, sunny summers, cold, snowy winters, rainy springs with lots of beautiful blossoming trees, and chilly autumns with amazing fall foliage.
    Aside from that, the schools are phenomenal, some of the best, if not THE best, in the country. It’s also very close to D.C., and since Maryland is a costal state, it’s pretty close to the beach.
