I'm curious about the smallest town you've lived in and how you liked it. I used to live in a village of 600 up north. The biggest city was 2000 people and it was about 40 minutes away.

I lived in a smaller city of 35000 too, but that doesn't count.

I find it funny when I hear people talk about cities of 200,000 as small towns, for me that's a real nice sized city.

As a kid, I lived in Castle Rock WA (about 1500 people at the time). For fun, we went to the "twin cities" of Kelso and Longview.

Yuba, WI Population 77
It was in a beautiful area of the state and had a town of a couple thousand 15 minutes away. It was a nice sense of community that everybody knew everybody. When I lived there there was 3 bars in town too. So one for every 25 people, not too shabby.

The town I currently live in, Monterey, TN has about 3K but I grew up in a small community called Lovejoy which had about 200 people. Don't be jealous of my big metropolis.

Galena, Alaska. Somewhere near the Artic Circle. Galena is a village on the Yukon River populated by Alaskan natives, Eskimo's and at the time by Air Force personnel, Gov't workers thier families and some school teachers.. I was stationed at the Air Force Station there. (I believe the Air Force is no longer there) Total population maybe was 1000 - 1500 if that. I spent 1 year there and was very glad to leave. It is a time and place I will never forget. Definitely an experience and not a bad one. Could really save some money there.
