A side effect of the financial problems of banks is that credit-card rewards programs are vanishing, especially for travel.

We're at 100 nominations and counting. Recent entries include Cody, Wyo.; Bandon, Ore.; and Petoskey, Mich. If you know of a remarkable town of fewer than 10,000 people—a town with a bit of an edge, with artists, shops, and restaurants that put bigger towns to shame—then go to our Coolest Small Towns home page and nominate it. And if you've got time, upload photos. After all, seeing is believing.
Airfare on award-winning Cathay Pacific, four nights at a five-star waterfront hotel, and a sightseeing tour that includes a cable-car ride to Victoria Peak and browsing at Stanley Market, from $1,410.
