With a population of less than 8,000, Montpelier has a quaint intimacy to go alongside its architectural beauty. Named after the south of France's Montpellier, Vermont's version is every bit as picturesque as its European counterpart.
In the heart of Wine Country, this Danish village was founded in 1911. Set in the Santa Ynez Valley, it is home to a number of bakeries and restaurants. Prepare to treat yourself to some sweet Danish delights in this place!
Deadwood, South Dakota
