A list was put together of the most picturesque small towns in America. 120 towns across the US made the list, and Minnesota is represented just once. How can that be? Minnesota has a ton of really cool small towns. Which states had more?

NC Travel Guides put the list together after they compared 500 small towns. They looked at the following categories: search trends, popularity with photographers, and popularity of photography with the general public.

A famous Navy admiral was born in the middle of Texas?
