Head for the hills: these cool mountain towns beckon with outdoor adventures, festivals, and local color.

No. 4 Lewisburg, WV

5 of 21

Lewisburg, bordered by the Allegheny Mountains in southeast West Virginia (the Mountain State), beat out Colorado towns to take the No. 1 title in the adventure vacations category. Consider that just a short distance from Lewisburg’s historic downtown—site of one of only four Carnegie Halls worldwide—you can go hiking, skiing, whitewater rafting, caving, and rock climbing. Lewisburg picked up a few other first places as well: best for picnicking, cool souvenirs, and vacation homes. And it ranked No. 2 among American towns for historic sites, thanks to the number of well-preserved 18th- and 19th-century buildings, including log cabins that date back to 1755.
