Granville, Ohio is almost identical to what the OP describes. Roughly 40 minutes east of Columbus, Granville is a charming village reminiscent of New England and home to Denison University.

Probably could throw in Doylestown and Newtown (Bucks) for Philadelphia as well.

As for Pittsburgh, Sewickely and Beaver would fit the bill.

For Los Angeles it's definitely 100% Claremont, no doubt about it. It used to be Pasadena but it's gotten too urbanized.

That's actually what I put originally, but Amelia Island feels a bit more "ritzy" to me.

I was thinking more along historic/touristy lines. That's St. Augustine all day but all places like that aren't necessarily ritzy.
