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




You want obscure? How about Ocean City, New Jersey?

I spent a night in Coeur d'Alene, ID a couple months ago. From what I saw, it's a nice place, beautiful. I want to go back and spend more time there.

Hot Springs, AR. It is a beautiful area with lakes and heavily forested hills. No one seems to really know about it.

Islip, NY (Long Island). Visited in 1988-1989 for business and have never returned. I recall it to be pretty suburban back then, with friendly people. Don't know if it's changed.

Vinings, GA. Visited in the 90's and have never been back. Charming, affluent area. Small town feel and friendly folks.

I love Solvang, CA, although it's not that obscure for most West coast residents.

Islip is very obscure indeed(and banal) It is just one of hundreds of sprawling suburban towns that cover Long Island like a
jigsaw puzzle, no different than any of it's neighbors.

Wow, what an interesting looking place. Is it a resort town? Are most of those buildings occupied?

Are those pools "hot springs" that people come to bath in? That would be cool, no pun intended.
