Discovering Small Town America
What happens when you leave the big cities and discover the rest of America?
This summer, in an attempt to restore some sense of normality to our lives, our family embarked on two separate road trips and racked up over 4,000 miles in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and then California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico. We departed on both trips from Los Angeles, the most populous county and the second-largest city in the United States. Before the pandemic, many inhabitants of large cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Washington, D.C. or Chicago (including me!) couldn’t imagine living somewhere smaller—somewhere less diverse, less cultural, less sophisticated.
Great article! We love our small town.
