We went to law school in Moscow. Moscow Idaho. not "Moss-cow" but moss-coe idaho. (Don't get it wrong up there or they'll start calling you a cow and all sorts of nonsense) It's a teeny tiny hippy town. Held together by an engineering company and the college, right on the Washington/Idaho border. It's also the best town ever. I dreaded moving there- living in a town there are very little options for any kind of shopping or activities or eating, and yet, when it came time to leave I was beyond sad. I LOVED the people, everyone was so kind. I LOVED the rolling hills. I loved being able to get where I was going in under 5 minutes, and unexpectedly I LOVED not having all the shopping options. You learn to live on less and live happier. I just loved it.
