Small towns seem to be the craze these days. In fact, FOX Business recently reported that Americans are on the move out of big cities all across the country. Louisiana has a ton of small towns, so the folks at World Atlas had plenty to choose from.

According to the above mentioned publication, St. Francisville is the "Best Small Town In Louisiana", here what they had to say:

St. Francisville, a bewitching small town draped with moss vines and overhanging foliage features a rustic charm unique to Louisiana. The parish seat of West Feliciana Parish, this small town of 1,800 is a laid-back locale where one can kick back and relax. Surrounded by structures with a palpable historic aura, even a simple walk through town harbors interesting tales and tours. Explore sites like the Rosedown Plantation Site, Oakley Plantation, and Myrtles Plantation. Open green space, beautiful designs, and lovely flowers await at each site. For a bit more fun, head to Myrtles Plantation in the evening to understand why it is nicknamed the “most haunted plantation in America.”
