It’s easy to see why this small town in the Alsace region of France is known as “Little Venice.” Lining its canal—which is just begging for a lazy boat ride—are colorful buildings and cobblestone streets. Break out into “Little town, it’s a quiet village,” as you stroll. If you’re looking to travel domestically, check out the most charming small town in every state. Au revoir!
Artist William Morris deemed Bibury “the most beautiful village in England” when he visited in the 1800s, and nothing much has changed. The enchanting town still has the quaint homes and rustic charm that any fairy tale should start in. When you live in a town like this, it’s hard to be unhappy. These abandoned castles are worth visiting.
