10 Coolest Small Towns in America 2011

The winners in our sixth annual celebration of great hometown escapes may be short on people, but they’re long on personality.

#1 Lewisburg, WV (pop. 3,830)


Arts in Appalachia
A small town is usually lucky if there's a decent one-screen movie theater, maybe a community dance troupe. But a Carnegie Hall? This speck on the map in the Greenbrier River Valley lays claim to one of only four in the world. The 1902 building now serves as Lewisburg's creative control tower, attracting an unlikely band of artistic characters, back-to-the-land types, and retirees.

Jeanne and Michael Christie embody Lewisburg's blend. The duo run the Davenport House B&B, where guests can bottle-feed one of the property's baby lambs after taking coffee and breakfast on their private patio. Michael is a painter whose work has shown in New York City's Hoorn-Ashby gallery, and Jeanne is the former director of front-office operations at the Greenbrier hotel, 10 miles down the road.

"You know, you always think of the ideal American town, where the kids are safe, the streets are clean. We have that, but we also have Wynton Marsalis coming through," says Jeanne, who'd just finished a morning of shearing sheep.

We were over there last month for the PGA tournament at The Greenbrier. I was kidding the folks at the Visitors' Bureau about the banners they had in town touting Lewisburg as the Coolest Small Town in America. I suggested the voting was done by their Chamber of Commerce members. We had a good laugh. By the way, it is a very cool town. We had a great time.

You've got to be kidding right??

Just because someone has a Carnegie Hall in town that makes them cool??

We've got them beat by a long shot out here in the west!

We have the Coney Island hot dog stand out here in beautiful Bailey Colorado!!

Now what could be cooler than that??

Be sure to stop by on your way down 285, it's worth a picture at least!
