Great post.  And, the fact that it is not too far away makes it a likely destination.  Thanks for the information.  I would like to visit, but I love living in Minnesota (oh, here come the guys in the white coats now!)

Wow!  What an amazing description of this area, Sally!  Makes me want to move!  You do the area a great favor by highlighting the academic aspects available to residents.  Nothing speaks more highly or an area or its' residents.  If that pride and those high standards are in place for the schools, you can can pretty much be sure that the other important items are in place as well.  Beautifully done ..

Sounds like a great place to live, as long as it doesn't snow there. Does it snow there?
