Coolness by association

Speaking of college, the town in which I spent most of my college years, Mount Vernon, Iowa, has been named by Budget Travel magazine as one of the coolest small towns in the United States. I don't know that I ever thought of it as cool while I lived there -- and given how much First Street has changed since I graduated, it's entirely possible it only became cool after I left -- but I sure liked it a lot. I sort of regret that Grant Wood barn wasn't around back then, though.
