Big, crowded cities don’t have a monopoly on cultural offerings. If you’re looking to visit (or move to) a place that flows to a slower pace and has a lower cost of living, these towns under 100,000 residents still have plenty to cool things to do.
1 of 30 Newport, RI (pop. 24,779)
Newport is a maritime town, so that means there are plenty of sailing and yachting opportunities. But if you don’t have sea legs, golfing and tennis are also popular pastimes. In fact, the International Tennis Hall of Fame are located in the Newport Casino. Or, if you’re looking for a more low-key activity, you could stroll through historic downtown and view the high concentration of colonial era homes.
