So you want a very rural feel? There are plenty of areas in the Midwest and Western states. Try Montana, Wyoming, Northern California, Texas, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah. There are very rural parts of Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, and North Carolina too.

West Virginia may fit the bill. The largest city has a city core of only 50,000.

Why would you have to move to an area without any malls NOT to go to one? Is there someone standing in the road forcing you to shop at malls in your area now? Simple solution... just DON'T go to the mall if you don't like them.

I thought it was very obvious his/her first post was meant as a joke but I guess some missed it.
Uh ... No. There was nothing "obvious" about it at all. Except that he was obviously serious and obviously too willing to believe (and repeat as fact) any stupid thing that anyone tells him.

Move to the upper peninsula of Michigan. Rural feel like Alaska with long winters. The west side of the U.P. is a 10 hour drive from Detroit.

Vermont would definitely be a good fit for the OP. It is small town and rural. The biggest city of Burlington is actually more of a large town. However, I really need to suggest this town because of the anti-Wal-Mart sentiment of the state. There may be one or two in the state, but the area is definitely very pro-Mom-and-pop stores. This may be the best option for the OP.

Pretty sure every state has atleast one mall somewhere.

Getting that rural feel is a whole lot easier then getting a city feel. You got plenty of options in the south as another poster mentioned, and I'd imagine the midwest not being soo bad either.

Aside from the mall thing, why do you want this?

Three malls in Vermont
Bulington
South Burlington
Rutland

Two Wal-Marts
Williston
Rutland (city zoning reuired them to put it downtown rather than eat up farmland to build a shopping center).
and a third one in construction currently in St. Albans

No Targets
