Well, of course northern and southern towns have different "vibes" but I wouldn't say that northern towns are more unique than southern towns. And where do you get this idea that northern towns are more "independent?"

Many, many southern towns have charming town squares and a Norman Rockwell sort of feel to them, just set in a more southern environment.

OP, check out Jefferson, TX and Natchidoches, LA for starters!

Jefferson, Texas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jefferson is less than an hour from Tyler, Texas - a good sized metro area with EXCELLENT medical facilities.

Natchitoches, Louisiana - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Natchidoches is less than an hour from Shreveport, LA - another city with good medical facilities. Out of the two, I would prefer Tyler's medical facilities however.

Celebration, FL. Disney built it. Can't get much more Americana than that.

This is still the majority of towns in the US. Its just that a smaller % of Americans actually live in these places, so they less attention. It will probably be difficult to get a job in these towns if you don't know someone (unless they are commutable distance to larger cities, in that case you commute).
