    Grinnell is a very cool town. You hae the town/gown rivalry, like any college town. That comes from very smart kids coming in from all over the country who think they're better than the locals.
    But a very cool town...

    Haha. If you think it's a cool town you need to travel more. Don't be afraid to leave the state you may just like it.

    Re: Grinnell Vies to be Coolest in America

    For a town of less than 10,000 Grinnell is very cool. I know when I was at ISU they would bring in some pretty impressive indie music acts to play free shows for the students. I spent a weekend hanging out there and had a great time.
