While major American cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York are no doubt enticing, they can also be exhausting, not to mention extremely expensive. If you're looking to relax and unwind on your next vacation, why not slow things down a bit, and choose an exhilarating American small town instead? Quiet, unhurried, and even tranquil, small towns are the perfect respite from the frenzied pace of the daily grind. Not only do they have that friendly, local community spirit that's so on-trend these days, but they earn major bonus points for being much easier on the wallet.
