I was thinking of places that are cities. In that case, these places come to mind: Welcome to the Village of Skaneateles!

Some great suggestions. Seems to me many of the quaint towns are located far north. Take western Mass, Vermont, Hudson River Valley, Finger Lakes and northern Michigan for starters. Could it be what ties these areas is the growth spurt ended before the great depression and before mass acceptance of the auto as the main for of transportation? Architectural appeal seemed lacking during the growth periods post WW2 in much of the rest of the country. Also these areas were not commercial hubs or prone to major demographic shifts over the past 50 years?

Hidden unknown gem I vote for is Skaneateles, NY. Sleeper state with the most gems I go with Vermont. Most stunning quaint town of all has to go to Machinac Island, MI

I would say Dunbar,PA. The buildings are pretty much the same as I remember them growing up as a child there, it is off the beaten path and time has passed it by. The town seems to take a lot of pride in its self, it is well kept secret.

I agree! It's the most peaceful place I've ever visited, even in summer "high season". I can't recommend visiting enough, it's a special place.
