America's Happiest Seaside Towns 2015: Wellfleet, Massachusetts. Renowned for the mild, sweet oysters, this town of 3,100 is home to much more than its local culinary star. Halfway up the forearm of Cape Cod’s famous, curling shape, Wellfleet has a quaint town center dotted with classically white-clapboard New England–style homes, sophisticated galleries, excellent restaurants, and a drive-in theater that is all-American fun.

From historic Friendship Cemetary in Columbus, Mississippi, often called "Where Flowers Healed A Nation." On April 25, 1866, the ladies of Columbus decided to decorate both Confederate and Union soldiers' graves with garlands and bouquets of beautiful flowers. As a direct result of this kind gesture, Americans celebrate what has come to be called Memorial Day each year.
