    Bloomington, IN, is ground zero for Hoosier fans. Home of Indiana University, the city reaps the benefits of having a large, prestigious college. Those benefits include some of the best men's basketball games in the country, theater programs, research facilities and, of course, places to party.
    Bloomington offers many activities to explore and enjoy the great outdoors. Three lakes provide chances to fish, canoe and water ski, and there are more than 200 miles of hiking and biking trails. Nearby Hoosier National Forest features 202,000 acres of protected land. There are four golf courses in Bloomington for those who prefer to wonder the cart paths.
    Bloomington contains a bumper crop of entertainment options both on and off campus. On campus is the University Auditorium for music and theater performances, the Art Museum, and the always provocative gallery at the Kinsey Institute. There are more than 40 pubs, breweries, taverns and bars in Bloomington. Many of these establishments offer live music. Among the most popular water holes is Upland Brewing Company. A popular spot on cold winter days is Darn Good Soup.

    So, do you agree with the rating?

    I can't recall ever being in Bloomington, but I like the sound of the Upland Brewing Company!

    As pretty a campus as you'll ever see. the article never even mentioned the quarries nor The oliver winery (famous for MEAD ), nor BEAR's Pizza which was voted the #1 pizza in the midwest. when i attended IU the campus was bigger than the town yet all that has changed .
    I think IU should be ranked a little higher .

    I suppose it's like Duke and how they like the action on top of them, but I've never understood why they haven't made Assembly Hall bigger (at least on the ends where the hoops are located), considering their basketball legacy.

    assembly hall was commisioned at the same time as U of I's assembly hall . Identical save for the seat colors . IU red and blue -U of I orange and blue . Really a pretty crappy arena for a big time basketball program .
