Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, (also known as Bath) has been listed in every edition of The 100 Best Small Art Towns in America.
Home to a spa where mineral springs containing sulfates, nitrates and carbonates flow forth at 74 F/23 C and 2,000 gal/7,600 L per minute, this town has flourished with culture and art. George Washington was once a devotee of the spa, and he and his family established the town as "Bath," the country's first spa. You, too, can indulge in a full Roman bath, swelter in a steam chest and luxuriate under the firm hands of expert massage therapists. (Make reservations at least two weeks in advance.)
Berkeley Springs is filled with shops that sell the works of more than 125 artists, including fine arts, wearable art, antiques, rare books and handmade paper.
There are more than 100 lodging choices in the area, and live local music is scheduled nearly year-round. Visit the vintage movie theater or wander through Berkeley Springs State Park, which is in the center of the village.
Berkeley Springs is 270 mi/435 km northeast of Charleston.
