Wish you could live in a small town where everybody else is young like you?

CNN Money recently put together a list of the 25 youngest small towns in the United States, based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau, that have the youngest median ages in the country. Naturally, several of them – including Amherst Center, Mass., College Park, Md. and State College, Pa. – are college towns. Nonetheless, the median age in these towns is less than 24 years.

For this list, CNN Money specifically chose cities with populations between 10,000 and 50,000. All of the towns in the list were ranked by median age.

Listed below are the top 10 small towns, according to CNN Money.
