San Francisco, going up to Twin Peaks:

Kinda reminds me of the rural road going up Beartooth Pass in Wyoming:

Kansas City has some very rural looking areas within the city limits, not too far from the airport.

Here's a road in Philly, along the Schuylkill River: https://www.google.com/maps/@40.0509...=en&authuser=0

And here's a scene from rustic New York: https://www.google.com/maps/@40.5040...=en&authuser=0

It was all one county back in the day. To stop annexation of parts of Princess Anne County by the city of Norfolk, the county incorporated itself as its own independent city. Same thing happened with what remained of Norfolk County, which became the city of Chesapeake. Suffolk merged with Nansemond County, Newport News merged with Warwick County, Hampton merged with Elizabeth City County. And you have this big mass of county-sized independent cities in the southeastern corner of the state. In any other metro area, neighborhoods of Va Beach and Chesapeake would be suburban towns in suburban counties surrounding the more urban cities of Norfolk/Portsmouth.

Interesting with the first one; one side can pass for the deep South with a farmhouse hoisting up a confederate flag the other for the Midwest with a cornfield.

A lot of Texas doesn't have sidewalks, sadly.

Here's one for Miami https://www.google.com/maps/@25.7824...7i13312!8i6656 real close to where my aunt lives. If you drive like 5 minutes west from her house which is in a very nice middle class suburban area, you hit swampland. Eventually you reach the Miccosukee Indian village.
