Big cities and metropolitan areas usually capture people's attention, but small towns can make you feel right at home and have their own perks. That's why Insider found the best small towns in every state.

"Small towns in the US can have just as much culture as big cities," according to the website. "Insider identified small towns with lots of activities, charm, history, and natural beauty."

According to writers, the best small town in Florida is...

DeFuniak Springs!

Over 6,900 people call this Walton County destination home. This is what writers had to say about the town:

"DeFuniak Springs is in Florida's panhandle and has an interesting history. The town was founded in the 19th century as a resort for railroad travelers. The town welcomed presidents, poets, writers, and musicians to the charming community as a vacation destination.
Today DeFuniak Springs still has its Victorian charm and still welcomes travelers interested in Florida's rich history and culture. The Walton County Library — the oldest library in the state — is also in town. The Chautauqua Hall of Brotherhood is also there, originally a 4,000-seat auditorium in the 19th century. The town is also home to Lake DeFuniak, one of the few naturally occurring lakes that are almost perfectly circular."
