Visitors will be charmed with Fort Benton, Mont.
Charmed, I'm sure
Look no further than Fort Benton, Mont., for a town dripping with charm. Some five dozen shops and other stops sell a silver-plated pewter bracelet charm ($2).

Every September, Kona Brewing Co. releases Pipeline Porter, a dark ale infused with local Kona coffee. Taste it at the brewery on Hawaii’s Big Island, and don’t worry that it’ll keep you up—it has only 2 percent of the caffeine in an average cup of joe. (808) 334-2739, konabrewingco.com.
