          Madison Indiana is really pretty. It's right on the Ohio river. There is a good waterfall hike you can do in town. They did a good job of keeping the downtown looking historic. The food isn't great overall, but there are 3 or 4 very good places to eat and drink in town like Mad Paddie's and the Creperie. You could definitely stop in Madison for a few hours and have a good time walking around Clifty Falls and checking out main street. It's a nice detour between Louisville and Cincinnati to get off the highway.

      Sometimes you don't have to go "far, far" from the cities. In Upstate NY 20-25 minutes on the road is typically all you need to escape even the suburbs. Whether you wind up in a quaint village or a depressed crossroads gas station is another question.

        I live here and possibly the closest thing to a "European style" town is Saratoga Springs -- and that's maybe 5% European style because it's actually a town and not pure garbage like many other smaller cities (Troy, Albany). I've been to Skaneateles too and it was ok.

          The problem is that cute small towns in the US are much harder to encapsulate into a single image. Instead of a bunch of stone houses crammed into a picturesque little street, there are wide avenues lined with large-lawned free-standing houses with lots of trees along the street obstructing views. It's very pleasant to walk along streets like this even if it's not a tourist-tier attraction.

          Yeah I think it's that there's a bunch of large state parks right north of the city that break up the urbanization. A few places north of those parks, like Poughkeepsie, still more-or-less count as NY suburbs but it drops off really fast after that. The Hudson river region still tends to be very busy, though. Even if the landscape is rural, there's often lots of traffic between Albany and NYC compared to elsewhere in the state.

          The median cost in Laguna Beach is a bad way to measure the actual cost of a home because the insanely expensive homes raise the average. Look on Zillow. There are tons of homes in Laguna for less than a million.

          A nurse in California can pull in $180K in their first year. If you're a 2 income family, you can easily afford a million dollar house on that salary. It's not like England where you'd be pulling in 35K.

    US and Canada small towns are definitely the best first world rural experiences in the world. The denizens are incredibly nature-hardened and often ride horseback in the local wilderness for hunting or other means, so you have that cozy simple life experience, but since it's in the US/Canada you'll still have every commodity back in town to be able to take your boots off next to a fireplace with indoor a/c and any kind of food you want to pickup/have delivered always be available whether it be seafood despite no oceans nearby or beef.
    European rural areas are often very poor and lacking in convenience, as Europe is a poor and lesser developed continent. The people often rely on handouts from their local government rather than take matters into their own hands, thus you'll be hard pressed to find horseback riders or dog hunters and stuff like that.

      And to clarify, Europe is still not "third world", it's just lesser developed but still modern enough to become lazy and rely on said handouts. The best rural experiences will always be true third world countries in certain areas. People that are so in-tune with the nature around them that they do shit you've never seen before.
      The US/Canada is the best first world rural experience because you get a sample of that kind of experience, but you're still in a perfectly wealthy area with no real danger or inconveniences on the level of the third world on Europe.

    Not Cumberland, Maryland, that's for sure
    Annoying homosexuals can frick off with their stupid "bait thread" complaints, maybe they are just embarrassed at the comparative paucity.

    Canada has a lot of Hallmark European-style small towns. Perth Ontario is one, even Kingston isn't too bad. I will look through my TikTok to find some more and report back

      I've been there, it seemed like a depressing place to live, a Youngstown, Ohio with better scenery.

        If you mean Cumberland, yeah huge disappointment for me.

        A small town I've driven through but never stopped in that looked nice was Ellicottville in upstate New York.
        The population is so small though that that would be a place to live in, not necessarily be a tourist in.

    Yes but very few. Probably can count on one hand. Europe had thousands of years of white influence to build culture while whites only came to the US very recently.

    Jersey Shore has nice towns that were made before cars so there isn't a massive road right next to the beach like California or Florida often have
