Bring Your Pup & Stay a While!

There are certain towns that just feel right -- vibrant, friendly and outdoorsy.

You can usually tell by the canoes, kayaks and bicycles loaded onto cars going through, the pervasive smell of good coffee, chocolate and barbecue and the distinctive sound of bluegrass music. People are there for a good time, good eats and the good feeling you have when you’re there.

One other tip: look for dogs. It’s a dead giveaway. People who love dogs also seem to be drawn to these wonderful communities.
