For this installment of the Livability.com List of America's top small towns, editors narrowed their search to "micropolitan" areas, steering clear of big-city suburbs and communities considered part of a larger metropolitan region. Editors also considered population and economic growth rates; cities chosen feature amenities that are attracting new residents and businesses.

Alexandria was chosen for its unique cultural assets, abundance of natural resources and beauty and residents who are passionate about preserving the character of the community.
