Duluth MN. Pretty much the only city in the upper midwest that I really like. The culture is more blue collar and down to Earth, like the great lakes midwest that I'm used to, and enjoy. Plus, it's a really great city if you love the outdoors, and the geographic location is very beautiful.

Lansing/East Lansing MI is a nice mix of down to earth capital city with the quintessential major college town right next to it. Old town in a nice Lansing neighborhood and the Red Cedar River adds a nice touch to Lansing, East Lansing and the Michigan State campus. Same with the Grand River in Lansing. It actually has a good bus system and has quite a bit to do for its size.

"Obscure" may not be the right term... More like - not that well-known outside of its region.

For example, how well-known is Ocean City, Maryland outside of the east coast? Have most people even heard of it? lol.

Duluth sounds like a really familiar name, I remember reading about it in a history textbook

I'd say Anchorage, Alaska is rather obscure. Depending on ones perspective, many think my current city of Albuquerque is as well.

Poughkeepsie, NY. I made a few visits over the summer and walked on the Walk Over the Hudson bridge, which is amazing. The general area is very quaint, relaxed and has a down to earth atmosphere that I like. Natural beauty is very nice, too. And some amazing turn of the century architecture.

Also notable:

Binghamton, NY
Newburgh, NY
Monticello, NY
Greenfield, MA
Northampton, MA
Norwich, CT
