  While 
  cities are known for being culture hubs and centers of
  entertainment, small towns often have just as much to offer. 

  All across America, small towns are becoming art havens, fine
  dining meccas, and top travel destinations. Researchers even
  found that people living in small towns are
  happier than those who live in more urban environments.

  Insider went state by state to find small
  towns with a plethora of activities for both locals and visitors.
  While some of the towns and villages are bustling tourist
  destinations, others are quiet suburban communities that are
  home to only a select few. 

  From the East Coast to the West Coast, these are the best small
  towns in the US (all populations according to 
  the US Census Bureau).
