Fictional president Selina Meyer on the HBO show Veep declared her candidacy here, at the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum.

This North County valley town was founded in 1778 by a group of settlers, including Quakers, whose Meeting House still stands today. It was named after revolutionary leader Samuel Adams (yes, that Sam Adams), and was originally a mill town, producing wool, cotton, lumber, and plastic. These days, Adams is known for its laid-back character and beautiful landscape, which offers multiple options for hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.
