Know You Know: Concord makes website’s Top 10 “Best Winter Vacation Destination”

L ivability.com, a national website that highlights America’s best places to live and visit, has named Concord a Top 10 “Best Winter Vacation Destination.”

The editors of the website said that in compiling their list they wanted to steer clear of well-known winter resort towns in favor of communities with broader identities. They explained how they arrived at their choices this way: “We identified the hottest winter scenes based on advice from experts including travel writers and tourism marketing professionals. With their help, we developed the following criteria: Ideal winter vacation cities must have a cold climate and the right conditions for skiing, sledding and ice skating, as well as great entertainment options such as restaurants, pubs, performance venues and recreation facilities. A city’s overall appearance and accessibility were other factors the experts suggested we analyze.”

Other cities making the list were:

∎ Anchorage, Alaska

∎ Spokane, Wash.

∎ Minneapolis, Minn.

∎ Reno, Nev.

∎ Traverse City, Mich.

∎ Waukesha, Wisc.
