  • Plan the perfect escape in 77 of America's best small towns, where you can visit antique shops or museums, take a hike, go birding, savor local cuisine, sleep on a feather bed, or simply rock away the afternoon on a breezy veranda.
  • Descriptive essays by National Geographic travel writers capture the essence of each town.
  • Detailed practical information highlights inns and B&Bs, restaurants, annual events, and must-see local and nearby sights.
  • Brilliant color photos show off the towns' unique qualities, and easy-to-use, full-color maps make finding these special places easy.
