Although most people prefer a bright and sunny place to call home, there are a few folks out there who may prefer to beat the heat (especially after the temperatures this summer) with a nice cloud cover. If you’re looking for a place that’s shielded from UV rays and intense temperatures, check out a few U.S. cities with the fewest days of sunshine.
According to City-Data.com, this New England town only receives about 4.4 days of clear skies per year. Otherwise, expect to see some big puffy clouds or gray overcast skies.
Coming in a close second to Amherst, this suburb of Tacoma only sees about 4.5 sunny days per year. Average precipitation levels are typically much higher than the national average (except during the summer), so make sure you pack plenty of umbrellas and snow boots if you’re thinking of moving to this Washington town!
City-Data.com reports that this Midwestern town sees about 5.3 annual days of completely clear skies. Residents don’t seem to upset about it though, as this city appears to be a thriving center for business, nightlife and cultural diversity. So what if there are a few clouds in the sky? Folks in Youngstown still look on the bright side.
