Visit the town I grew up in that is the definition of cartoon land with cartoon people.

Touted incessantly by Jon Miller, San Francisco's AT&T park is called a beautiful baseball stadium -- featuring the giant coke bottle and glove, and the smiling cartoon Chevron cars on the left field wall.

I think the Sunset Strip looks a little cartoony with all of its billboards.

Also some of the residential streets in the LA hills look pretty cartoony with their crazy mix of architectural homages.

Vegas, Times Square - small part of the city but very exposed, famous, and visited. And very bright and neon and distracting with ads and giant video screens everywhere.

Interesting, how so? I think Asbury Park is very authentic (and famous) "Jersey Shore" (and no I don't mean the show I mean the true local summer shore culture). "Cartoony" to me indicates a more fake, unrealistic, unusual place - Asbury Park is the opposite, IMO. It's even still very blighted just off the boardwalk and away from the downtown.

Which locations in the US tend to be very cartoon-like. For example, which has very bright vivid colors almost to the point of being unrealistic.

The locations can be cartoon-like geographical locations or cartoon-like neigborhoods in a town.
Celebration, Florida & Seaside, Florida come to mind. Many ritzy neighborhoods and towns in Orange County CA like Lake Forest and Ladera Ranch.
