Where?

Well…

*It was voted #3 in “Safest of Nation’s 100 Largest Cities” in 1996,

*It was also named the number one college sports town by Sports Illustrated in 2003.

*In 2004 it was named the healthiest city in America by Men's Journal magazine.

*It was named Most Romantic U.S. City by USAWeekend.com, February, 2006

*It was ranked 2nd Best place in the Country for Education: Forbes, December, 2007

*The summers are supposed to be absolutely beautiful. Then winters, on the other hand, well….I better pack a warm coat.

*It’s 768 miles from Little Rock and the people there probably don’t say “ya’ll”.

Matt certainly won't help the most romantic ranking but will make up for it in the best sports town ranking. Can't wait to visit you guys. Petty and I are already planning a trip.
