Adventure Towns

Portland, Oregon

Outside Online has an interesting Top-25 article about the Best Towns to live in for access to aoutdoor adventure, affordability, and some other characteristics.  In their words:

Where do you end up when you want a community with incredible access to the outdoors, affordable homes, and solid jobs? Some very surprising places. Introducing the top 25 towns in America for cycling, paddling, running, surfing, skiing, and—because you might want everything—all of the above.

Among the Top 25 are Boise, Idaho; Chattanooga, Tennessee; Portland, Maine; Charleston, South Carolina; and Boulder and Denver, Colorado (as two separate entries).  Check them out here, and then let me know what you think.

Any of my readers live in any of these places?  Why should we all move there (or not)?

(Ed. Note: Her Side will be back to regularly scheduled programming starting Tuesday, September 7.  Thanks for sticking around!)

(Ed. Note: Someone kindly pointed out to me that the photo above is actually of Portland, Oregon, not Portland, Maine.  In my defense, it was labeled as Maine at the place from whence I obtained it.  Still, my apologies to citizens of both towns!)

Lost and Found

Over at Go Girl, I get lost.  And found.

Check it out here.

PS: Her Side has been on temporary hiatus as the summer has been OVERSCHEDULED.  We’ll return to our regularly scheduled programming as soon as I can manage it.  Thanks for hanging in there, and I hope you’re having your own adventures!
