We're Number 1

Amherst has just been named the Number 1 college town in the U.S., according to the article posted here. Here we are on the map.

It looks like the ranking was due to a number of factors, including 5 colleges in the immediate area (UMass, Amherst College, Smith, Mt. Holyoke, and Hampshire); reasonable cost of living; access to cultural events; and good public transportation. The article forgot to mention the natural beauty of western Mass.
