Sports Illustrated ranked the top 10 Greatest College Towns and Columbia, Missouri comes in at number 5!

Columbia, Missouri came in at number 5 on the rankings from Sports Illustrated beating out some other fantastic college towns including, Boulder Colorado, Knoxville Tennessee, and Columbus Ohio. The only college towns that Sports Illustrated felt deserved to be ahead of Colombia are Ann Arbor Michigan at four, Austin Texas at three, Athens Georgia at 2, and Madison Wisconsin took the top spot.

I have been to all of the top 4 college towns on this list, and have not been to Colombia yet! I will now make it my mission to go to Colombia sometime this fall. I will say I agree with SI's top 4 in any order they are all fantastic towns, Madison, Austin, Athens, Ann Arbor would be the order I rank them personally. If you have suggestions on where I need to go when I go to Colombia hit me up on Twitter @MarkHespen or Instagram @MarkHespen.
