Creating a list of the most beautiful towns in the world, and even just in the United States, sounds like it would be a near impossible task. Though, many have made these kinds of lists, and many have claimed to know and even rank the most beautiful towns in the world.

More recently, a popular blog called Have Clothes, Will Travel created a list of the 14 Prettiest Small Towns in the United States, and one of those places (the closest one to Boise) is about a 6-hour drive away.

The creator of the list, Have Clothes, Will Travel says, "As the gateway to Yellowstone National Park, West Yellowstone is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers."

Needless to say, this is most definitely one of the prettiest towns in America.
