"America truly is a melting pot — not only of people, but of places. And while this beautiful country is made up of some of the most beloved cities in the world — San Francisco, New York City, Chicago, and the list goes on — you might be surprised to find out that there's a whole lot going on outside of these giant metropolises. Small and secret American cities have an undeniable charm to them, and often a plethora of history that goes hand-in-hand — and I'm about to tell you about some of the best.
Small cities may be limited in size and population, but sometimes isn't that just what you're looking for? A weekend getaway to a tiny town can be refreshing, and with so many cool points of interest on the U.S. map, there's really no excuse not to go exploring. The United States is a playground of landscapes, and there is no shortage of deserts, forests, beaches, mountains, and plateaus to back that up.
