I would second that. It is a movie set for the day after the end of the world.
However my choice would be Deerfield, Massachusetts. It is a tiny 18th century town (one street) restored or preserved and mostly owned by Deerfield Academy, located just east of the Conneticut river near the Vermont border. It is weird because everything is completely original to it's early days. You turn off a modern Rd and drive into this ghostly place and you are transported back in time. It is particularly spooky at night.

York PA is a little off bubble to the right. They actually have a park named for the 37th President. Richard Nixon County Park

Upstate Ny and neighboring Pennsylvania towns like Utica, Binghamton, Jamestown, Scranton etc.

Weird in a "get-me-outta-here" way

I think NYC, NY is pretty darn weird, in a lot of ways.
And I think Saranac Lake in upstate NY is weird because they have their own weather. For instance, last week everywhere else in NY had winds above 10mph to accompany their rain storms, but Saranac Lake was the only place with no rain and a 0 wind factor. All of the northeast could be getting pounded with massive snow storms and they're the only ones with sunny skies. I think it's so weird!

I would have to agree with those who have already posted San Francisco (shoot, may as well include the whole bay area), Portland and Seattle, as well as Pigeon Forge.

I have to include Eugene, OR. I don't know if "weird" is the right word--if it's not it's close.

I think schizophrenic may be more accurate. Between the loggers, sawmill workers, university liberals, college students, tweakers, anarchists, it's...different. I've never seen quite a mix of the very conservative with the ultra-liberal...as the years have passed, skewed more and more toward the wacky side.
