Cheers to these small towns for great Main Streets, where you can admire architecture, sample the local flavor, and find a lost America.

Littleton, NH

18 of 26

It’s a long drive from anywhere to Littleton in northern New Hampshire—so good thing that this community of 6,000 along the Ammonoosuc River has a vibrant, self-sufficient Main Street. The streetscape is a pastiche in progress, with everything from the Neoclassicism of the 1850 Thayers Inn up to the austere Modernism of the last mid-century. Chutters sweetens the neighborhood and boasts the world’s longest candy counter at 112 feet.

Worth a Stop: Just L Modern Antiques offers a reasonably priced selection of Midcentury Modern antiques.
