Check out Brockport NY, a small college town (pop. under 12,000) and suburb of Rochester NY. Very nice village with lots of cute shops, nice bookstores, restaurants and even a movie theatre. Very walkable too.

MANY small towns in Pennsylvania are like this. Sometimes it seems as if every town in PA is set inside a narrow valley, so they're almost all like small-town versions of Pittsburgh.

Savannah, GA and Pensacola, FL are pretty dense for their size. In fact, some of the pics posted in this thread remind me of their downtowns.

Frederick, MD, is a small city well under 100,000 people and has a historic downtown where people live, work and shop. There are always a lot of people out and about.

You should check out New Brunswick and Somerville NJ.

New Brunswick is a nice little city which is rapidly growing, its at about 50,000. It is home to Rutgers College. I hang out here a lot, its crowed every weekend. The area is nice, lots of historic and new age looking buildings and some cobble street roads. Easton Ave and George St is where you want to be. Lots of hip lounges, bars, clubs, dining, theater and has a great art and underground music scene. The city is VERY ethnically diverse. Everything is walkable and it even has a train station at the heart of the city that will take you to NYC in 30mins.

Even a book was written this year about the NB music scene




Then there is Somerville NJ. Nice little town with a family oriented Main St. During the summer everynight their are people walking about, street fairs, and on Fridays their are old school car shows. Somerville has a lot of cool shops and exotic resturants. It is about 40 mins away from NYC and 10mins away from New Brunswick. A lot more is to come to Somerville cause they are building new apartments, shopping center, and other stuff in this one area off main st. They want to make it a "Transit village" since it is right across from the trian station.
