It’s no question that having bad allergies affects your quality of life. Allergy sufferers have to deal with symptoms such as
- Itchy, watery eyes.
- Itchy nose
- Runny nose
- Hives (a rash with raised red patches)
- Stomach cramps
It makes sense to do everything in your power to eliminate allergy suffering to improve life quality even if it means packing up and heading for greener pastures.
It’s good to consider location when allergies are seriously impacting your quality of life. As they say in the real estate business, “Location, location, location!” Consider the following five cities if you’re an allergy sufferer to alleviate your symptoms.
Denver residents enjoy a temperate climate and about 300 days of sunshine per year, with four pronounced seasons.
Although known for its heavy snowfall, Denver experiences average winter temperatures warmer than those of cities along Mid-Atlantic, the Midwest and New England. The city typically receives about 60 inches (153 cm) of snow per year, averaging about one storm per season totaling 12 inches (30 cm) or more. While the daytime temperature typically rises to the 40s (4-9° C), evenings cool considerably, often dropping into the teens. “Chinook” winds, which warm as they descend from the mountains can occasionally bring unseasonably warm temperatures in the 60s and 70s (15-24° C) for days at a time. If you’re planning to visit Denver during the winter, be prepared with full winter gear just in case as -20° F (-29° C) is not unheard of, but also pack a light sweater and t-shirt.
Provo, a city in the Wasatch Front region of the state of Utah in the United States of America, is known as a base for exploring the surrounding countryside and national parks. Provo is located in Utah County, which is often considered the most conservative county in the most conservative state in the country.
Provo itself has a population of about 115,000 people, but the Provo-Orem metropolitan area that encompasses Utah Valley is home to over half a million people. Other cities in the valley are very accessible, especially Orem, which sits side-by-side with Provo. Because of Orem’s proximity, visitors to Provo should also look at things to do in Orem, as well as places to eat and sleep, depending on their needs and interests.
