Been to many UVA football games in Charlottesville and can say that picture of shops and restaurants is about 3 blocks long and that's it. The rest of the campus is spread across the city and it does not have college town feeling like a campus. Plus it's way to expensive.
Interesting article. I love Boise and Idaho but it is not as tax friendly as the article states. Normal
retirees here have all income treated just like the it is by the IRS.
I live in a southern college town. Nice place to live, safe, quiet enough. Plenty to do - music, movies in the park, county fair, lots to eat and drink beyond the standard franchise fare available in all the cities coast to coast.
Its definitely what you make of it though. If you come to a place like this looking to be entertained or if you are picky about the entertainment (you like only one kind of music) - you'll be disappointed. If you need a nice town to do your thing in - close to the stores that support your hobbies (outdoors, antique cars, woodcraft) - and close to things like craft shows and car shows and wilderness areas where you can hike and camp - then a place like this will work for you. Plenty of educated people here and always interesting things happening on campus like famous people who come and give talks. Classes can be taken on campus or nearby at the local vocational school. All in all a pretty good place to live. FWIW I have friends that are bored to death living in a big city all b/c they don't create something to do, they wait for entertainment. Go to the lake! Go for a hike! Build something. Fix something. Turn off the darn TV!
