The town of about 11,000 Iowans was named to the organization’s “America’s Best Small Towns” for 2017 — the sixth edition of its kind. Smithsonian.com teamed up with geographical information company Esri to “identify tiny towns chock full of local culture, history and natural beauty,” then narrowed the list “to pinpoint the destinations that are especially worth making the trip to this year.””Our top 20 picks range from the well-traveled to the offbeat,” Smithsonian.com said, “but each town shares a special something that makes it ripe for discovery in 2017.”
