As a product of the suburbs --60's ranch era---the quaint or charming places always fascinate me.

I've seen some very pretty places in my limited travels. Mainly in the SE.


What would you put on such a list? Or we could do it by size? I don't care...do as you will.

Large cities:

1 San Francisco, CA
2 San Diego, CA
3 Savannah, GA
4 St Augustine FL

Smaller cities/towns

1Eufaula, AL--just saw this one recently

I can give you a list of the prettiest towns/cities I've visited in North Carolina. In no particular order:

Mountains:
Asheville
Hendersonville
Brevard
Sylva
Highlands
Franklin
West Jefferson

Coast:
Wilmington
Manteo
Bath
Belhaven
Southport
Beaufort
New Bern
(Little) Washington
Edenton
Elizabeth City

It's hard to describe the central part of the state. There are no real vacation destinations. There are however hundreds of towns with plenty of history, much of it captured in historic houses and buildings such as the towns below.

Central:
Spring Hope
Nashville
Wake Forest
Louisburg
Warrenton
Hillsborough

There are plenty more in the Piedmont, but most have been bypassed by interstates and even I haven't visited many of them... sad to say.

I would have to say Seattle is a beauty. When I visited a friend there that has an apartment on the hillside about a 15 minute walk to the Space Needle I just remember standing on the balcony and stareing. This was at night. It is beautiful, like a gem.

I've heard that Pittsburgh is very beautiful as you are approaching it from the distance.
