And another quaint city center is Hot Springs, AR. And also Mountain View, AR. Lots of picturesque towns in the Ozark and Ouachita mountains of Arkansas.

Arkansas is a very overlooked area of our country, which is fine by me whenever we take a road trip to the Ozarks!

I've often thought about that, that Arkansas must have some very beautiful areas, but it's a state that is literally on no one's travel radar, or so it seems. I don't think I even know anyone who has been to Arkansas!

I agree about enjoying the relative lack of crowds in the "hidden gem" areas of our country. For example, Ohio has some absolutely gorgeous scenery and a plethora of fun things to do, but how many people just write it off as "rust belt" and " flyover country"? Fine by me, it's always more fun when it isn't overrun with people. More for us to enjoy!

Provincetown definitely wins for me, and while the town is authentically charming (nothing fake about it), it is also surrounded by stunning natural beauty.

Ephraim, WI, Fish Creek WI, Mackinac Island, MI and Galena, IL would be my choices.

I would also throw in Roslyn, WA if the Yuppies haven't ruined it by now.

Grew up between those two towns. Very beautiful. I used to avoid Door County because I was overfamiliar with it, but I just had a great 4-day weekend up there and I can understand why people come from all over every summer. Bluffs, forests, beaches, panoramic views, endless water, and surprisingly great amenities.

East Hampton, NY. Founded in 1648. Lots of pretty, old houses, B&Bs, and storefronts, windmills right on Main St, ponds with swans swimming around in them, old, knobby trees lining the streets, and the beach.
