BLOOMINGTON – An article by Thrillist, an online media website that covers travel, food, and entertainment, names Bloomington one of the coolest places to live in America.

The articles reasoning to their decision

Home to just over 84,000 people, Bloomington offers all the charm of a smaller American town imbued with enough culture–bars, restaurants, and museums to keep up with the trendiest metro areas that the United States is known for, such as Chicago, Brooklyn, and San Francisco.

Typically known as a college town with a quirky indie vibe, Bloomington offers residents an endless list of things to do and see. Bloomington’s downtown district is home to over 150 restaurants and cafes, with a wide variety of global cuisine making it a food hotspot.

This, coupled with the fact that Bloomington also features countless music venues, art galleries, and top-quality sporting events, plus tons of ways to enjoy the great outdoors from fishing to hiking, it’s not surprising it made the list of coolest places in America.
