Turning to the likes of U.S. News & World Report, Reader’s Digest, Architectural Digest, The Travel Channel and House Beautiful magazine, here is a look at the best small town in every U.S. state.
1 – Alabama: Magnolia Springs
Dating back to the 1800s along the Magnolia River, Magnolia Springs is mere minutes from Mobile, Alabama. Still affordable. Sleepy full of trees, azaleas, wisteria, dogwoods and, of course, magnolia trees.
Quiet streets with southern charm..
2 – Alaska: Sitka
Sitka, part of Russia until 1867 and is the very town where the official transfer of Alaskan land to the United States took place. This waterfront beauty is a popular stop for cruise lines traveling the Inner Passage.
5 – California: Carmel-by-the-Sea
Located just north of Big Sur in the gorgeous Monterey Peninsula and home to Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, Monterey, and Carmel-by-the-Sea.
The favorite, though, is Carmel-by-the-Sea, a tiny — one square mile! — charmer with upscale shopping and dining amid gingerbread-like houses. Monterey is no slouch either, though, landing in the top 10 on U.S. News & World Report’s list of the best small towns
