Chances are if you live in Michigan, and you see this video of a skier "hitching" behind a ski boat being towed through a neighborhood in a snowstorm, your first thought is "Pure Michigan", which is a testament to the effectiveness of the state's popular tourism campaign. But it turns out this 'joy ride" happened in Middletown, Ohio. Michiganders do say a lot of things about the state southeast of us, but nobody says "Pure Ohio".

England's Daily Mail  talked to the uploader, who said,

"I called my buddy to come by our house so my grandsons could see them and that’s what they did! Like the video says…kick-ass friends who made my boys happy by seeing them having fun regardless of the icy Level 2 snow emergency.  The Daily Mail explains Ohio's three-level snow laws:  Level 2 emergencies require that citizens limit travel only to 'necessary' journeys - while Level 3, the highest state of alert, bans all vehicles from the road except first responders - with very few exceptions" - Daily Mail

So what can you say about this video? Well, the video been shared a lot, and folks on Facebook got great head start on comments.

One guy said, "Done it. But so down to do it again".

Several people said words to the effect of the boat going up for sale in the Spring: "boat for sale, gently used, just don’t have time to use it anymore”. And it is funny, to this Michigander, how many folks thought this video was from Michigan.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
