Small towns are one of my favorite parts about this country. Looks like I'll be headed to this place soon.

As someone who grew up in a small town (my graduating class was 48), I love all that a tiny community can offer. They're unique, warm and the perfect place to spend a weekend. One of my favorite towns to visit while I was attending Baylor University was West, Texas. They serve up the best kolaches on earth at the Little Czech Bakery (pictured above). This little taste of Czechoslovakia was also a favorite pit stop of my grandfather's.

Every state has a small town, or a few, that is worth visiting.

Recently put out a list of the "21 Small Towns You Should Visit on Your Next American Road Trip." Whether you're flying in for a quick getaway or road tripping through, these places are worth the stop for various reasons. And Louisiana made the list with Arcadia.

Arcadia is a unique place where you can get your fix of all things "Bonnie and Clyde." In May 1934, the bodies of these two infamous criminals was towed to Arcadia to Conger Funeral Home to be embalmed. Each year, Bonnie and Clyde Trade Days takes place on 130 acres with shopping, fishing, concerts, and an RV Park.
