These 15 Perfectly Picturesque Small Towns In Northern California Are Delightful

Small towns make up a lot more land space around Northern California than all those big cities you hear about around here. Most of us grew up in towns that were pretty to look at, too. Everybody knew everybody and we found a lot more joy in the simple things in life. Maybe that’s why we love looking for new small towns to visit. It takes us back to a sweeter time when people slept without locking their front door and neighbors knew each other by name. Here are a few picturesque towns we’ve handpicked just for you!

We had a VERY hard time picking the few we did. Why? Because there’s dozens of towns that deserve to be here. Which towns are your favorite when you need some pretty scenery?
