There are plenty of underrated adventure destinations in the U.S. that are worth your time.

Many are ideal for exhilarating quests ranging from exploring a lesser-known corner of the planet or going on a unique expedition.

Some of them are small towns with a population of a few hundred or about 5,000.

Allow yourself to be surprised and give you and your family a chance to have the best vacation of your lives because of authentic experiences in small picturesque towns.

Choose a laid-back atmosphere over the hustle and bustle of a big city and see one-of-a-kind historical sites. What these cities lack in size they make up for in character and allure.

Visit a coastal fishing village that will delight you with history, adventure and of course, warmth; relax on breathtakingly beautiful beaches that give way to some of the best waves you'll find anywhere; make time for a true paradise if you like perfect weather and water sports – all for a reasonable price.
