The most conservative area in the US is actually not the Southern US or Appalachia, rather its the area of the Western Plains from the Texas Panhandle up to the Dakotas. Amarillo, Texas might be a good fit.

Oklahoma City, where possession of marijuana first offense = 1 year in jail. Even very Red States don't have those dinosaur-era type of pot laws anymore.

I agree with this. Oklahoma City is hyper-conservative to the extreme. The Baptist moralists pretty much run and control everything. It's hard to believe while other states are legalizing marijuana, OKC is raiding head shops and the state tried to sue Colorado. I will be shocked if it isn't 30+ years before marijuana is legal in Oklahoma. OKC is probably one of the only places where a state legislator can publicly go on rants about how the LGBT community is worse than terrorists and be re-elected two more times. You can't buy real beer at a grocery store and the liquor stores close at 9PM and on Sunday (In Oklahoma they sell watered down 3.2% beer). It's actually a little too right wing here for even a lot of "conservatives" from other parts of the country i.e. those that really support small government.

If the OP aligns with the religious right, they might like OKC. If you are a small government libertarian conservative who doesn't want a nanny-state in their business, I would look elsewhere.

Oh good lord, every suburb of Kansas City. Please, come, take my spot. My liberal butt is high tailing it to Seattle next year thanks to the Orange One, you can take my place.

I want to be where the people are. But not in the Midwest or much less, the South.

You have to live in a blue state because of Trump?

Thanks. Not far from where I am now, Albuquerque. I hate it here and don't want my baby boy raised in this state.

Just because of the liberal politics?

OP, I wish you would clarify your terms as for what "kind" of conservatism (i.e. politically, religiously, fiscally, etc.) you're looking for, and what size city or town you'd like.


Without knowing your specifics, it's hard to say what you'd like. Here in my own deep-blue state of Maryland, you'd be surprised at just how much of the place is conservative. Garrett County (far western edge of the state) or Carroll County (to the northwest of Baltimore) could hold their own against any red state. If you want a small city that's tucked away in the mountains, but still has interstate highway links to the rest of the world, you could try Cumberland. It's seen better days, that's true, but it has an undeniable charm to it. There's also Frederick, a somewhat larger city with a wonderful downtown and much closer to the center of the state. It's still conservative, though not quite as much as it used to be.


Maryland has been called "America in miniature," and this holds true politically as in many other ways. A substantial majority of the state is conservative, in terms of land area; but the relatively compact liberal areas in the central part of the state are where the great majority of the population resides.


If you want your state as a whole to be conservative, I'd keep looking. But if you want a conservative town or city or county, without regard to the statewide majority, you could do worse then checking us out.
