Id say that Springfield MO, Salem OR, Visalia and Bakersfield in CA and Greeley CO are some others that come to mind.
Springfield is probably best known across the country for Bass Pro Shops, as well as being the urban center for the Ozarks, although the focus of tourism in the area is more a little south towards Branson. It is likely confused with the Springfield in Illinois at times, as both are fairly similar sized cities and along historic Route 66, with the metropolis of St. Louis in between.

Agree, used to live there I just don't hear much about it. Lincoln's tomb and home are worth seeing.
