The Best-Kept Secret in Every State

Whether you love beach towns, adventure trails, or urban exploration, one of these wildly overlooked cities and towns across America is sure to be right up your alley.

Alabama: Florence

The Shoals of Alabama in the northwest part of the state have a rich history and a vibrant modern-day culture. Each of the region’s “quad cities” boasts its own claim to fame: the musical town Sheffield is home to FAME Studios, where Etta James and Aretha Franklin recorded tracks, while Tuscumbia is Helen Keller’s birthplace, and Muscle Shoals gets a shout-out in the unofficial state anthem, “Sweet Home Alabama.” But it’s the least-known of the four, Florence, that’s arguably the most exciting. It’s considered one of America’s newest and most important foodie towns, and it’s home to a visitor-friendly lion habitat, where you’ll find the University of North Alabama’s live, on-campus mascots, Leo III and Una.

Who it’s for: Foodies and families

Alaska: Sitka

By now, you’ve probably read about the wonders of Alaska’s scenic capital, Juneau. But nearby Sitka is considered Alaska’s true hidden gem—and that’s saying a lot in a place famous for its raw natural beauty. In what other U.S. state can you hike through a rainforest peppered with totem poles and watch the sunset behind a dormant volcano? Sitka has a colorful history, too: it became the first capital city when the United States bought Alaska from Russia in 1867. Sitka’s Russian roots are still prominent in the city’s myriad historical parks and museums.

Who it’s for: History and nature buffs

Arizona: Carefree

Want to take a walk on Easy Street? You finally can—just make a left on Ho Hum Drive. The whimsically named Carefree is a planned community created in the 1950s by a pair of American entrepreneurs, who marketed it as “a place for gracious living in a desert forest of rare beauty.” Today, the small city just north of Phoenix lives up to its name—and its founders’ vision for a quirky, upscale utopia. Head to Carefree for fine dining, golf, tennis, art museums, spa facilities, and shopping. And don’t miss the world’s largest sundial (it points to the North Star!) or the world’s tallest kachina doll, a traditional Native American craft.

Who it’s for: Free spirits with fat wallets
