America's Most Beautiful Town Squares

The best way to get to know small-town America is hanging out in the square.

The Square, San Marcos, TX

13 of 14

The imposing Hays County Courthouse, built in 1909 and restored in 1998, dominates the square, but it’s the surrounding cafés, pubs, and quirky shops that give it life. Paper Bear, for instance, sells oddball gifts from chicken masks to underwear for squirrels, and Rhea’s Ice Cream specializes in unconventional flavors including avocado-coconut, corn, and maple-bacon—don’t come here if you want plain vanilla.
