When you think of Massachusetts, the first city that comes to mind is Boston. California? L.A. Florida? Miami. Well there are more gems in these states than the most popular cities. Thrilllist.com‘s travel writers did some research and compiled a list of the most underrated cities to prove just that.
Here are a few interesting finds:
- Homer, Alaska . . . which apparently, quote, “rocks a hell of a beach scene.”
- Sacramento, California . . . quote, “an underappreciated food city.”
- Duluth, Minnesota . . . a chance to see the Northern Lights and, quote, “monster cinnamon rolls.”
- Duck, North Carolina . . . quote, “the amenities of an East Coast spring break destination minus the crowding and chain restaurants.”
- Fayetteville, West Virginia . . . quote, “the ideal home base for rock climbing, mountain biking, and the best whitewater rafting in the east.”

And the most underrated city in Texas is….Funkytown aka Fort Worth! “You’ll have a blast in the Stockyards the odd Old-West historic district that doubles as a nightlife and dining destination. You’ll also find one of the most underrated zoos in the country, where the “Texas Wild!” exhibit takes visitors through every landscape in Texas (and has a shooting gallery). Did you know the only original Michelangelo in the Americas is in Texas, at the Kimball Museum in Fort Worth? (Texans do.) And during the summers, the city is also home to the Rockin’ the River festival, where bands perform on waterfront stage as the crowd floats by in inner tubes, effectively combining two of the great American summer traditions — tubing and festivals — in one big free event.” — Matt Meltzer
