Road trip, road trip, road trip! There are so many fantastic cities worth exploring in the U.S. Here are a few charming, character-filled towns you might not have considered. 

Marfa, Texas  
Population: 1,800

This small desert city in West Texas is an eclectic and burgeoning arts hub. Don’t miss Prada Marfa, a permanent installation modeled after a fancy Prada store that’s plopped outside the city in the middle of nowhere. Also worth seeing, if you get lucky enough, are the Marfa Mystery Lights. These are the colorful dancing lights that even NASA can’t explain. But they only come out when they want to.

Hot Springs, Arkansas
Population: 38,559

Perched in the Ouachita Mountains, this lovely little city is known for its naturally heated springs. The charming downtown with its Grand Promenade is the setting for Bathhouse Row, eight beautifully preserved bathhouses from the 19th and 20th centuries. Don’t miss the Hot Springs Mountain Tower, with its lofty observation deck and breathtaking panoramic views.

Lone Pine, California  
Population: 1,807

This appealing little western-style town has a lot going for it. It’s the gateway to Mt. Whitney and Death Valley, so both the highest and lowest elevations in the lower 48 states are each within a one-hour drive of town. But with Lone Pine’s chill vibe, and its rustic bars, restaurants and motels, you might not want to mosey out.

Crystal River, Florida
Population: 3,129

Located on the west coast of Florida, this is the only place in the United States where people are allowed to swim with manatees. You might also catch a glimpse of these beloved "sea cows" when kayaking or paddle boarding in the river, or strolling along the stunning Three Sisters Springs boardwalk

Bisbee, Arizona
Population: 5,203

This historic little copper town, nestled among the Mule Mountains in southeastern Arizona, has a beautifully preserved downtown area. With its many artists and colorful characters, it just might have more creativity per capita than any other city in the States. For a peek into the town’s past, don a headlamp and take an underground tour of the vast Queen Mine.
