The Tiniest Town in Every State

Redbook Logo By Jessica Leigh Mattern of Redbook | Slide 1 of 51: Looking for the smallest town in every state? Here, you'll find the least-populated small towns in the U.S., according to the United States 2010 Census. While it can be hard to believe, many of these teeny towns have just one, two, or three lonesome locals. Besides the bucket list opportunities, though, you might be wondering why you should bother taking a trip to any of these places. Well, for starters, you'll be surrounded by peace and quiet for miles and miles. And just think of the postcard opportunities! But there's also plenty to see, do, and enjoy just outside many of these small towns. From scenic mountain towns to pretty lakeside villages and, yes, a few quirky destinations thrown in for good measure, there's something here for everyone. Still, only one of these little locales can take the top spot as the absolute teeniest. The 29-person Hawaiian town of Manele isn't quite small enough, nor is the 10-person, itty-bitty city known as McMullen, Alabama. Even the one-person village of Hobart Bay, Alaska has some competition (Willow Canyon, Arizona also has just one inhabitant!). When you're through, Watch Hill, Rhode Island—population 154—might just start to feel like a big city.
