Lambertville, NJ and New Hope, PA. They're on either side of the Delaware River, so you can see both in one day.

Actually not the oldest, though they self proclaim it. Fernandina Beach FL was founded in 1562 (three years earlier) and has had eight different flags fly over it.

When I live in Oregon, I truly loved visiting Astoria! It's awesome.

I also like La Crosse, Wisconsin.

We also have a town that really gets into the christmas spirit and draws in a lot of tourists.

Leavenworth, WA is a small town of 2,002 people nestled in the Cascade mountains. It used to be a logging town, but it's economy started to get worse, so the town leaders decided to turn it into a Bavarian theme town to draw in tourists, and it worked, and now it's just a purely touristy town with different events throughout the year, the most famous being oktoberfest and christmas lighting festival. The town is also serviced by Amtrak.
