Note from 10Best: Someday, we'll all be ready to pack our suitcases again and head out on our next adventures. In the meantime, we'll keep supporting the places that inspire us.
Tasty things sometimes come in very small packages. These 10 small towns – each with a population of under 25,000 – have big food scenes with chef-driven restaurants, local flavors and plenty of variety, especially given their small size.
The top 10 winners in the category Best Small Town Food Scene are as follows:
- Abingdon - Virginia
- Punta Gorda - Florida
- Thibodaux - Louisiana
- Lewisburg - West Virginia
- Stillwater - Minnesota
- Saranac Lake - New York
- Oxford - Mississippi
- Orange Beach - Alabama
- Collingswood - New Jersey
- Twisp - Washington
A panel of experts partnered with 10Best editors to pick the initial nominees, and the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote.
Congratulations to all these winning small towns!License the 10Best Readers' Choice Award Logo
