What are typical little American towns like they show in the movies?

Where in US could I find that typical little American town they always show in the movies?

Top Answer:

BTW, for reference, the "town" is actually the Universal Studios backlot in Universal City, California. It has been featured in several movies.

Other Answers:

I grew up in Old Greenwich, Connecticut. It's a fairly quick train ride from Grand Central, and is a pretty idyllic place.

Pretty much every town that has 5-15k population.

Saved you the trouble, you're welcome.

Plymouth, Michigan.

There are several towns in the US like the ones you describe.

Northern California near Oregon. Visit the Redwoods and the towns around there.

Yes, Arcata.

Owego, NY
Got an award for best small town in the US a couple years ago.

I lived in Winchester, VA for a year. To me a perfect little town.

I know it's not in the US, but Cloverdale, BC.

Toms River, NJ. Has also quite a similar mall.

99% white. Upper middle class. 10 mins from beach. Excellent restaurants. Very nice people. All local mom and pop owned stores. Film festivals all summer, community activities. Non degenerate bar scene with respectable people and cute chicks.

Count Basie grew up there.
