Yet again, Ithaca has been named the best college town in America.

“Natural beauty, intellectual stimulation and small-town charm” catapulted Ithaca past the likes of Athens, Ga. and Boulder, Colo. to the top of HomeInsurance.com’s list of America’s best college towns. The city boasts 150 waterfalls within 10 miles of its downtown area, 17.6 arts and entertainment venues per 10,000 people and a workforce that leans heavily toward the creative fields, the website said.

The website also noted that Ithaca has snagged spots on Grandparents.com’s “Best college towns for retirees” list and The Daily Beast’s “Smartest college towns” list.
