Some of the most beautiful places in America can be found in the smaller towns decorating the country, often overshadowed by the busier, more popular tourist destinations of big cities. However, it is worth exploring the less-visited towns to see the beauty America has to offer.

Travel + Leisure compiled a list of the 20 "most beautiful small towns" in the U.S., breathtaking destinations that have a population under 20,000 and that "offer a glimpse [of the] variety of gorgeous places" around the country, like a California bay, an Alaska town with views of glaciers and a small Hawaiian island nicknamed "Pineapple Island," to name a few.

Among the list is Arizona's own Sedona, an almost otherworldly beautiful town with towering red rocks. The city was also recently recognized by another outlet as one of America's most beautiful cities. This is what T+L had to say about Sedona:

"Here's the thing about Sedona: It's objectively stunning. And that's especially true of its red rocks. The buildings that sit in the middle of these formations tend to blend in to their surroundings and let the red sandstone buttes and spires do the work. Also located in Verde Valley, nearby Clarkdale is surrounded by green with red rocks hemming the horizon, giving Sedona a run for its money, with the added bonus of a delightful downtown."
