College Towns

We at SmallTownGems.com are partial to college towns, and so are many of our viewers. Many of our patrons have expressed interest in retiring to a small college town. Because their professional careers force them to work, commute and live in a big city, they long to retire to a small college town where they could enjoy a slower pace-of-life, yet provided many of the cultural, athletic and artistic opportunities of a bigger city. This is the dual advantage afforded by many small college towns.
