I love these ubiquitous lists compiled by yuppies for yuppies. Many of them were originally great small towns prior to being invaded by yuppie hordes and gentrified. A great example of this would be Bozeman, Montana.

Two New Jersey "small towns?" I'm now planning on penning my own article: "100 small towns in Wisconsin better than anything in New Joisey."

Those are both small towns. The second one is a really small town. It is just that I hear people say "we live in a small town" when they are 40 miles from the Chicago Loop. No they don't. They live in an exurb of Chicago.
