Palm Coast, FL (PRWEB) June 27, 2011
With temperatures already breaking record highs throughout the country, is there anywhere to go to escape from the heat? CLRSearch Real Estate Search Engine has compiled a list of counties with the coolest average July high temperatures.
We take our hats off to Alaska, the clear winner with 24 counties in the top spots. With average July high temperatures reaching a chilly 65.5 °F for the state, it is clear that when it comes to the rest of the Continental U.S., no place can compete with Alaska. With that in mind, we have taken Alaska out of the running to focus on the lower 48.
After evaluating CLRSearch’s community demographic data for the counties with the coolest average July high temperatures, Park County, Colorado takes the prize. Coming in at a pleasant 66.2 °F, Park County is located high in the Rockies in the center of Colorado. It offers spectacular scenery, great recreational opportunities, and true mountain heritage. Elevation is the key driver of its relatively cool July temperatures. Park County has a population of 16,650 and is home to the town of Fairplay.
Fairplay is the county seat and most populous town in Park County and sits at an elevation of 9,953 feet. It consists of modern retail businesses, as well as a historic town on the bluff above the Middle Fork South Platte River. The town has become mildly famous as the town depicted in the South Park animated television series on Comedy Central.
