With autumn around the corner, now is the time to plan a getaway to places less trampled.  From the left coast to the East coast and everywhere in between, small American towns packed with charm beckon. Take the time to stop and take in the fall foliage in a little town without the hustle and zero bustle.

Jasper, Arkansas


It’s tiny, gorgeous and home to the US’s first national river, the Buffalo.  Go hiking, canoeing, caving, rock climbing, fishing or simply kick back and soak up the beauty.  Home to the annual elk festival to celebrate the reintroduction of elk to the area, Jasper offers families, couples and outdoor enthusiasts loads of American small town charm.  Be sure to check out the historic, post card perfect town square.

Mystic, Connecticut


It’s hard to resist a village named Mystic. With a lighthouse museum, tea shops, an aquarium, local craft beer, a renowned local theater playhouse and more cute factor than one can shake a stick at, put Mystic on your list for a salt air getaway this fall.  Sail in an 80 foot vintage schooner in Fisher Island Sound’s protected, calm waters through October.  And yes, it’s also home to the famous Mystic Pizza restaurant.

Port Townsend, Washington


It’s tourism slogan is “One of the coolest small towns in America” and it’s easy to see why.  Port Townsend is located on the rugged Olympic Peninsula, a scenic drive or short ferry ride from Seattle.  With a combination of Victorian charm in a seaport, Port Townsend is a great base camp for exploring majestic Olympic National Park which is on it’s doorstep.  Check out the local farmers market with a massive range of local produce and foodie finds.
