Twelve Most Distinctive Towns

The National Trust for Historic Preservation names its twelve picks for the 2001 list of most distinctive towns.

America offers vacation destinations that epitomize the flip side of cluttered tourism and sprawl -- places where the Sundance Kid once held up the local bank, where dozens of wineries and luxurious spas vie for attention, or where four world-class museums are within walking distance. The National Trust for Historic Preservation, the country’s largest private, nonprofit preservation organization, announced the selection of the Dozen Distinctive Destinations for this year’s list of the best preserved and unique communities in the U.S. Leading the list are Eureka Springs, Arkansas and Calistoga, California.
