St. Francisville, Louisiana has been named as one of the “coolest cities” in the U.S. by travel website Far and Wide.

The report sites many towns where you can slow down, relax and enjoy intimacy without all the hustle and bustle of big city stresses.

Far and Wide put together this list after combing city data from several websites including U.S. News & World Report, Reader's Digest, The Travel Channel, Architectural Digest and House Beautiful magazine.
