Don't be obtuse. If you read the OP's original "wants", Northern Maine and NH do not fit, unless you can show me the "upper middle class areas" I've missed all these years bombing around the trails on the sled.

Have you been there and would you recommend it?

Also, do you know where I can find some other pics of Portsmouth?
THE DAILY PORTSMOUTH Distinctive Photography of Portsmouth, NH THE DAILY PORTSMOUTH

It's such a short trip, how could you not.

The Brewery is a good place. There are so many pubs in town you can't go wrong. Coat of Arms, McMememys, Rusty Hammer, Ri Ra etc etc

Livonia, Michigan is over 90,000 residents and i believe has the exact distinction of being the largest city in the US with such as high density of white residents. Parma, Ohio may be next.

Livonia - 96,000 residents according to 2010 census. 95% white.
Parma - 81,000 residents, 96% white

honorable mention - Cary, NC - 135,000 residents, 75% white. obviously not really comparable to parma or livonia but in terms of population i'd mention them.

Portland and Seattle get the distinction of being the whitest according to the Seattle Times article in April, 2011 but.....in my opinion since they're white make up is only about 66% that does not necessarily mean whitest. now many for cities their size obviously.

both parma and livonia are interesting cases too because they are cities but technically grew up as suburbs to cleveland and detroit who are both majority black / minority.

Its just not easy to guess what is the capital of White America. I mean, even Atlanta, the Black Capital of America, has a higher percentage of white people than black people when looking at the Metro as a whole.
You forgot Pittsburgh and Portland.

Interesting chart! The Detroit burbs are whiter than the Salt Lake City burbs (and many other "white" metros"). That speaks to the extreme segregation in metro Detroit.

Yeah, I figured Boston would be up there. Is Pittsburgh considered Midwest or Northeast? Nevermind! Don't answer that question as it will derail the whole thread. lol.

Interestingly, I happen to live in the whitest major metro in the south, Tampa, Fl. It looks like Tampa is the only metro area throughout the south with a white percentage above the national average.

Portland is just as white as Seattle, but has one million people less living there, so I figured it wouldn't stand a chance as being considered the capital of white america.

Parma is THAT white?!! Every time I go there I feel like it's fairly diverse!

I really don't think Seattle is that white anymore guys....wanna say it's white metro population percentage is it the low-70's, high-60's, and it's not dominated by one race (like 70% white, 27% black). And if this discussion touches on the topic of "diversity", it's one of the fastest-growing immigrant meccas of the 21st century. So when I think of something like "White Capital", it doesn't pop in my miind first.
