Visiting America's Best Small-Town Museums

Studio Int NRM Jeremy Clowe-ThumbNew Fodor's List Highlights Hidden Gems in Small-Town U.S.A.

As our long-time customers know, Country Travel DISCOVERIES has always emphasized off-the-beaten-path routes and harder-to-find attractions on our tours.

Apparently, what you buy counts, and people claim to be happier when they invest in meaningful experiences rather than material things. Unlike a new iPad or TV or earrings, such experiences as travel, learning, or social action don’t lose their novelty, depreciate, break or become obsolete.
