A domestic travel trend is emerging. American travelers are craving small town comfort and charm, according to trivago.com data. Travel interest to towns with fewer than 50 hotels has been on the rise throughout 2014 and 2015, as Americans continue to seek out less crowded and more budget-friendly destinations.

Luckily, whether traveling “small” or merely economically, losing out on quality doesn’t have to be an issue in the US. As trivago’s Best Value Index (tBVI) shows — calculated using the annual average price of a standard double room and the city’s average hotel rating* — America’s small towns and mid-sized cities offer the best value for your buck.

* The Best Value Index ranks cities based on a combination of consumer ratings and average hotel prices, with 100% being a perfect score. Only destinations with at least 50 hotels and a minimum average of 150 user ratings per hotel were considered in this index, however the 2016 Best Value Small Town list indicates only cities or towns with fewer than 50 hotels in total.
