Astoria’s #2!

October 3rd, 2011

Belated congratulations to our little neighbor on the coast, Astoria, for getting picked as America’s 2nd “Coolest Small Town” by Budget Travel. The winner was Lewisburg, WV, apparently the fact that they have a mineral spring in town and are the smallest town to boast of a Carnegie Hall gave them the leg up on Astoria. Oh well… Astoria will still be number one in our hearts. If you want to see the rest of the list, you can find it online at the MSNBC website. (Word of warning… the list is full of towns in exotic places like New York, Pennsylvanian, and somewhere called “Arkansas.”)
