I'm looking for small liberal towns, perferably in mountains, or near nature. I kind of want to "get away", and I was wondering if anyone knew of any towns that fit this description in the u.s. thank you.

You don't say what your price range is, but there are a few small New England towns in artsy Litchfield Hills, CT. The price to live here is high, but the area is very liberal, well-educated and you have access to the mountains, beaches, and NYC is close by.

Look in New England. Maine and Vermont especially.

Most parts of Maine are fairly conservative. I'd say stick with MA, NH, RI, CT and VT.

I'm just looking to rent a small apartment or studio apartment for under $600 a month including utilities.

Scratch Connecticut, then! Studios in much of Connecticut start around $675 without utils.

You might want to look at Vermont. Lots of nice little towns, relatively inexpensive compared to southern New England, and you have mountains, lakes, rivers and four seasons.

There aren't mountains, but you might want to check out Oberlin, Ohio outside of cleveland.

Welcome to the City of Oberlin

Oberlin, Ohio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Oberlin College Online

There is plenty of nature all over Northern Ohio, so i don't think you'll have a problem there.

Asheville, North Carolina. The rest of NC is fairly conservative, but Asheville is a hotbed of liberalism smack in the middle of the Great Smoky Mountains.
