2. Bryn Mawr, Pa.
How can a place of less than 4,000 make it so far up our ranking? It’s all in the numbers. Nestled in Radnor Township, this home to Bryn Mawr College may seem like small beans, but as its name means in Welsh, it’s a “big hill” of excitement.
Bryn Mawr achieved the best possible rankings when it came to original dining options, since none of the restaurants within its borders are boring old fast food chains. From Yangming to Gullifty’s and everything in between, they all offer unique eating experiences.
Also, for such a small spot on the map, Bryn Mawr managed a respectable 25th place ranking for nightlife with one place to hang after the sun goes down for every 914 residents. Activity options here were more than just respectable — at fourth place overall, they were superb.
