So here are some things to know about Ames, Iowa, based on this adorable and rather ridiculous video called "Hooray for Ames!" which I swear is not a clip from Parks & Recreation. Ames has very clean water. Commutes to work are no longer than 20 minutes. There are 36 "recreation areas." The spring is mild. Did I mention the water?
The video was produced by Iowa State's administration this past February, but has started to make the rounds on Twitter today. If you are looking for a place with, uh, restaurants on Main Street, how about the ninth-ranked city in America according to CNN Money (according to "Hooray For Ames!")?
Hm. Did I mention the water?
