Water draws boomers to NWI

  #
Baby boomers from Chicago love Northwest Indiana's dunes and lakefront property. Sales of vacation homes in the region have steadily climbed for the past five years.

Nationally, sales of vacation homes rose by 4.7 percent in 2006 to a record of 1.07 million units, according to the National Association of Realtors.

Most recently, a 2 percent property tax cap and developer-friendly local governments have provided extra draws.   more...

Surfers hang 10 ... in Montreal?

  #

Canadian Press

MONTREAL–It's the first sunny day of spring and the surf's up in downtown Montreal.

Downtown, you say, in Canada's second-biggest city, hundreds of kilometres from the nearest ocean?
