Going on a trip, whether for the weekend, a week or a month, is probably everyone’s favorite pastime. Make the most of the few vacation days you have, and don’t flock to tourist traps like New York or Los Angeles. Think outside the box.

They may not get a lot of attention, but the U.S. has hundreds of small towns. Of the nation’s 325.7 million people, an estimated 205 million, or 62.9 percent, live within an incorporated place as of July 1, 2017.

Of approximately 19,500 incorporated places, about 76 percent had fewer than 5,000 people and nearly 50 percent had fewer than 1,000 people.

Some have fewer than 10.

The following list is based on the 2017 populated estimates released by the U.S. Census Bureau.
