What cities/towns/villages do you know of that you'd consider a hidden jewel that most Americans would never acknowledge.

Explain why, post some pics if you have some, and making a list of them is a plus

Thanks for posting the pictures of Pittsburg, I really enjoyed them, especially the "painted ladies" row houses.

Great photos of Pittsburgh! It truley is a gem!

However, it's not so hidden, as much as it is underrated

I second Fort Worth. I would add San Antonio and Baton Rouge, LA as well.

I fully agree with both statements! Same goes for Forth Worth, TX.

Here are a few in New York.

1. Hudson Highlands area. Excellent views, suprisingly so close to NYC. West Point Military Academy, Revolutionary war sites, Storm King Art Center, Black Rock Forest, nice villages like Cornwall on Hudson & Cold Spring, numerous state parks.

2. City of Troy. On the way back after along decline. Interesting downtown, excellent location

3. Kingston-New Paltz area. Can you say history? Numerous colonial sites. EXCELLENT LOCATION with views of the Hudson River and the Catskills. Halfway between Albany and NYC. The Catskills provide a million acre backyard to roam around in.

4. Letchworth Gorge. This would be much better know if it was a National Park instead of a state park.

5. Ithaca, Corning, Watkins Glen, Geneva, Cazenovia. Small cities and villages scattered in the Finger Lakes area. The lakes, wineries, and a suprising amount of waterfalls. Looks like classic New England in parts.
