The weather is nice normally but in the winter it can drop quickly to 6 degrees! Brrrr!!!! If you do end up coming to this region I hope you dress warmly but in the summer and spring it gets hot so you can also dress up in shorts and tank tops and hit the beach. In Winter you can do some sledding but also stay cozy on the couch! In the fall school starts we have nice schools but also you can play in the leaves, rake the leaves and just enjoy time!
