Montpelier Is a "Mountain Town"?

National Geographic Adventure magazine created a list of the top fifty towns to live in the US and Montpelier made the list as one of the top ten "Mountain Towns" in the country.

I like living in Montpelier but I've never thought of the place as a "Mountain Town". It's only at 500 feet above sea level and is in a valley between a few rolling hills; not mountains. Let's put it this way, if I can bike up ain't a mountain.

Also, how the hell does New York City not make the list of "Top Cities" over Gainsville, FL and Overland Park, KS? Stupid friggin' list.

Thanks to Montpelier Matters for the tip.

Fond du Lac over Madison and Milwaukee as one of the nation's top Waterfront spots. Yeah, this list is a pile of shit.
