1. Jamestown, North Dakota

For the love of outdoor activities, we are sure you’d love to visit this small town. Are you fond of fishing? Well, there are 21 fishing holes conveniently close in Jamestown.

2. Lititz, Pennsylvania

Of course, we would include a town that is actually voted by many as the coolest one in America! Lititz is dubbed as the coolest town in USA on 2013, and we just know why. There are a lot of things you can do here, especially if you’re a history buff. You can walk along the historic streets, enter the first commercial bakery of America, and visit Wilbur Chocolate Museum and Factory Store. Yep, we are sold when we heard “chocolate.”

But you could also do some fun family activities like go-kart driving and play miniature golf. For some added thrill, you can also do a guided tour in the Wolf Sanctuary.
