These Are The Most Beautiful Towns In America

Lookin' good.

The United States of America is one stunning country, and Conde Nast Traveler took it upon themselves to do something fairly difficult: rank its most beautiful towns.

Aside from looking simply stunning, the secret ingredient to their allure might just be the other thing they have in common: a lack of people.

The most populated town on Conde Nast Traveler’s list (Santa Barbara, California) tops out at 88,410, according to the most recent U.S. Census population estimate.

We highlighted some of the most breathtaking spots in the photos below, but be sure to check out the video above for the full list.
