America's Sweetest Small Towns



When people travel in the United States, whether they’re fully-fledged Americans, or vacationers looking to enjoy a slice of authentic American life, they tend to focus on the big hitters - places like Orlando, New York, Las Vegas and San Francisco - which is all well and good - these places are amazing - but it means that they are missing out on some of the sweetest, prettiest and most interesting places in the country - small towns.

Next time you’re planning a road trip, or you have a hankering to explore the good ole US of A, be sure to see out one or more of these small towns if you want to have a really sweet time…

Ligonier, Pennsylvania

With a population not much over 1,500 people, this small town is about as small as they come, but don’t let that put you off because of Ligonier, which was settled in the mid-1700s, is a fun-filled destination. The main draw of this sweet small town is the Idlewild & Soakzone Amusement Park, which is one of the oldest in the US and a great place to have family fun. If you love history and nostalgia, you’ll be blown away by the old town square and its quaint bandstand too.

SweetGrass, North Carolina

SweetGrass, as you can see at http://sweetgrass.com/blowingrock/, is a very small town and community located in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. If you;’re looking for a really authentic small town experience, where the people are friendly, and the views are spectacular, it is one place that you won’t want to miss. It has mountains, and a pretty lake, great places to eat and it’s in close proximity to numerous ski resorts, what’s not to love.

Stowe, Vermont

New England is home to some of the quaintest, most beautiful small towns in the United States, and I’d argue the world, but  Stowe, which is home to a population of roughly 4,3339, is certainly one of the best. Quintessentially New England, the town is not only home to some of the most picture-perfect houses you’ll ever see, but it also has its own mountain ski resort and the Smugglers’ Notch State Park to keep you busy and active!

Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee

If you’re heading down south, be sure to add Leiper’s Fork to your itinerary. Although this pretty village was much busier around 10-0 years ago when the Middle Tennessee Railroad brought people there, it is still a great place to stop at if you want to experience real southern hospitality. Just be sure to eat breakfast at Country Boy (it’s to die for) and take the time to visit the Leiper’s Fork Distillery, which you can find out more about at http://leipersforkdistillery.com/. It’s home to some of the finest whiskeys in the land, for sure!

Small towns really do have so much to offer; They tend to be cleaner, prettier, safer and filled with more unexpected attractions than the average city, which is why you should take the time to see a few!
