The Cities & States With The Smallest Population

Only world travelers know about and have been to the cities with the smallest populations. Yet what about the rest of us that never know or get to see those cities? All around the world, each city, town, state, and country has its own unique characteristics and architecture. From the fanciest to the most ordinary, exploring a new city is very exciting and really educational — some people shocking as it may prefer being in a city that only has a few people. Just like being in a big busy city, being in an extremely small city has its ups and downs. The United States may be one of the biggest countries, but these are the states and cities with the smallest population.
