These Are the Best Small Towns in the South

From Texas to Tennessee, these small towns truly deliver on beauty and adventure.

Synonymous with a slower pace and charming hospitality, the southern U.S. lures travelers with its seriously picturesque scenery, historic attractions, outdoor adventures, and delicious food. And while the bustling cities of Nashville and Houston have lots to offer visitors, smaller Southern towns provide plenty of appeal, too. From Texas to Tennessee, these are some of best small towns in the South.

Duck, North Carolina

The nostalgic town of Duck, located in North Carolina's Outer Banks, is home to luxurious vacation rentals dotting the Atlantic Ocean as well as waterfront dining and shopping venues. Visitors can spend their vacation on expansive beaches, shaded bike trails, and rustic wooden boardwalks along 11 acres of maritime forest and willow swamp trails. A cruise over the bay shallows is ideal for a toast-worthy sunset. Duck is also one of the most pet-friendly beach destinations in the country — well-behaved dogs are allowed off-leash and canine water fountains can be found all over town.

Highlands, North Carolina
Highlands is a charming mountain town nestled at an altitude of 4,118 feet in Nantahala National Forest. The surroundings, which include the highest mountain (Mount Mitchell), deepest gorge (Linville Gorge), and tallest waterfall (Whitewater Falls) in the eastern U.S., lend themselves to a nature-filled getaway. Two popular parks — the Blue Ridge Parkway and Great Smoky Mountains National Park — are also within a few hours' drive. Meanwhile, Main Street in Highlands is home to plenty of eclectic shops and restaurants, as well as The Old Edwards Inn and Spa, one of the most romantic European-style Relais & Châteaux resorts in the country.
