Dubuque is a great town/city but I think it's a bit too large considering it has a metro area with some small suburbs. I also wouldn't call it all that cosmopolitan either.

I really like Bisbee, but not sure I could stretch it to be cosmopolitan.

I grew up near corning and does pack fair amount for size. Shopping could be better, but not bad. CMoG is awesome.

Stillwater, MN could be a nice fit as well.

I think there are probably a lot of river/lake towns under the radar

I would have recommended this small city anyway, but its fresh in my mind after traveling there today and seeing this absolutely breathtaking movie that was filmed entirely in Columbus, Indiana. Anyone who knows architecture associates the name "Columbus" with Indiana, not Ohio or any place else that bears that name. The link below to the trailer gives a tiny taste of the film...


It has the benefit of being home to one of the most progressive industrial companies on the Fortune 500 and is home to an extensive collection of modern architectural masterpieces. It has a thriving town center, outstanding schools and the most diverse population in the state. It lies at one end of the stste's best corridor...the stretch of State Road 46 that runs between Columbus and Bloomington, with the small artistic village of Nashville sitting in between the two. The topography of this region is completely different than what you'd expect to find in Indiana. And Columbus has arguably the best access to all of it.

Plus you can be in downtown Indianapolis and the rest of the metro area in 45 minutes to an hour.

"Columbus" is already generating a great deal of awards buzz, which should only elevate the profile of this gen of a city.

Definitely worth a look.
