A Map of the Best Places to Live
Kelly Norton has created a beautifully designed interactive map of the most pleasant places to live in the USA. The Pleasant Place to Live Map is a dot heat map of towns and cities in the US displaying the number of 'pleasant' days enjoyed each year.
Norton has defined 'pleasant' as a mean temperature between 55° F and 75° F with no significant precipitation or snow depth, using data from the NOAA. Users can search the map by zip-code or simply click on the map. The 5 most pleasant and least pleasant cities are listed below the map.
