America's Prettiest Winter Towns

There’s an invigorating, rosy-cheek feeling that comes from a day out among fresh air and snow—followed by something hot to drink. That’s the promise of America’s prettiest winter towns, where you can wander among beautiful historic streets with eclectic businesses and scenic surroundings—whether laced with cross-country trails or vineyards whose tasting rooms beckon with fireplaces.

But the researchers also stumbled upon a somewhat unexpected correlation — people tended to view brown eyes as more trustworthy than blue eyes regardless of whether the person doing the rating was a man or woman with blue eyes or brown eyes.
