Smithsonian Magazine has ranked Petoskey Number 6 on its list of 20 Best Small Towns to Visit in 2013. The magazine used Esri data for cities with populations of less than 15,000 that have exceptional concentrations of museums, art galleries, orchestras, theaters, historic sites and other cultural blessings. The top towns also boast heartwarming settings where the air is a little fresher, the grass greener, the pace gentler than in metropolitan America. Generally, these towns are devoted to preserving their historic centers, encouraging talent, and supporting careful economic growth.
