11. Ann Arbor is extremely Democratic
As was stated earlier, there are a few Republicans about (fiscal conservatives, social progressives) but the town is so blue we haven't even had a serious Republican candidate for anything in years. Our mayor, city council, county commissioner, state rep, state senator, US rep, and US senators are all Democrats.

We do get a Republican governor from time to time but once the idiots that vote them in realize that only the rich and corporations get the tax breaks and the rest of us get lousy services and crumbling infrastructure they wise up.

Marquette is a nice town and has everything you list; you can live close to hospitals and shopping, it gets a lot of snow, and it's not too big even though it's the UP's largest city. I just read that it has a population of 65,000 which seems very inflated; the last I heard was 24,000.
