10 Small Cities to Visit in 2015 That Should Absolutely Be on Your Travel Bucket List

I’ve always been a small town girl. Don’t get me wrong, I love a weekend trip to New York or San Francisco, but after a few days of eating, drinking, shopping & sight seeing, I’m always very ready to come home to Telluride. Chelsea Grasso from Bustle recently wrote an article titled “10 Small Cities to Visit in 2015 That Should Absolutely Be on Your Travel Bucket List“. In her article, Grasso highlights some of the best small towns in the US. Excitingly, she chose Telluride as her #1 destination for her story. When big city folk visit Telluride you often hear them say something like, “You know Telluride is a small town, but it has a lot going on for a small place”. This is what I love most about Telluride. It is indeed oh-so-tiny, but there is never a shortage of fun festivals, interesting people & cultural enhancement going on. There really is something for everyone here. Grasso writes:

America truly is a melting pot — not only of people, but of places. And while this beautiful country is made up of some of the most beloved cities in the world — San Francisco, New York City, Chicago, and the list goes on — you might be surprised to find out that there’s a whole lot going on outside of these giant metropolises. Small and secret American citieshave an undeniable charm to them, and often a plethora of history that goes hand-in-hand — and I’m about to tell you about some of the best.

Small cities may be limited in size and population, but sometimes isn’t that just what you’re looking for? A weekend getaway to a tiny town can be refreshing, and with so many cool points of interest on the U.S. map, there’s really no excuse not to go exploring. The United States is a playground of landscapes, and there is no shortage of deserts, forests, beaches, mountains, and plateaus to back that up. From the Pacific Northwest to Southern California, the steep slopes of New England to the sunny beaches of Florida, it’s time to start experiencing America in all her glory, tiny towns and all.

Population: 2,500

You may know about Telluride for its famous annual film festival and steep slopes for skiing, or you may not know about Telluride at all. While tourists tend to flock to the tiny town for the aforementioned events, its resident population comes in at just under 2,500, making it one of the tiniest cities on the grid. Nestled nicely in the Colorado mountains, Telluride has an old-time feel and some of the cutest streets you’ll ever walk. The breathtaking canyon views make for a picturesque stay, especially for a town that is only one mile long.
