ABERDEEN:"THE HUB CITY"

FOR A SAFE MIDWESTERN JAUNT, ABERDEEN IS IT. THERE'S LOW CRIME, SOME BEAUTIFUL SCENERY AND LOTS OF FLAT! YUP, IT'S IN THE PLAINS SO THE WIND BLOWS A LOT AND THE WINTERS ARE BRUTAL...AHHH BUT THE SUMMERS! ABERDEEN HAS SOME GREAT HIKING TRAILS, LOTS OF PARKS AND THE MOST WIDELY KNOWN IS "STORYBOOK LAND" FEATURING ALL THE STORYBOOK CHARACTERS YOU GREW UP WITH, LIKE THE 3 LITTLE PIGS AND SNOW WHITE! THERE ARE GO CARTS, WATER SLIDE, PADDLE BOATS, A LITTLE TRAIN TO TAKE YOU THROUGH THE PARK AND A PETTING ZOO AS WELL AS CAMPING AND PICNICING AREAS! MANY COUPLES ARE WED IN THE STORYBOOK LAND CASTLE AND THERE IS PLENTY OF AREA FOR HOSTING A GOOD SIZED WEDDING PARTY! ABERDEEN HAS 2 COLLEGES, NORTHERN STATE UNIVERSITY AND PRESENTATION COLLEGE. THE BEST TIME TO VISIT WOULD BE EARLY SUMMER WHEN EVERYTHING IS IN BLOOM AND THE TEMPERATURES ARE MILD. AUGUST GETS VERY HOT AND HUMID. YOU REALLY CAN'T BEAT THE MIDWEST FOR SAFE LIVING! IT'S JUST TOO COLD IN THE WINTER FOR ME!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:LOW CRIME, SPRAWLING AREAS OF NOTHINGNESS, WHICH IS BLISS FOR THOSE OF US WHO ABHOR CROWDED AREAS!
  • Cons:MISERABLY BRUTAL WINTERS, BLAZINGLY HOT AND HUMID IN LATE SUMMER,DIFFICULT TRAVEL THROUGHOUT WINTER, HIGH HEATING COSTS
  • In a nutshell:THERE'S STILL ROOM.....Lol!
