Nashville or Gatlinburg. Both attract a lot of tourists that play to TN stereotypes.

That would be stereotypically Texan IMO. Quintessential Texas is the Austin-SA corridor.

It's not just New York but also people who don't think New Mexico is in the US.

Please elaborate on Austin-SA corridor's quinessentiallity............ It's funny because I always think of that area (Hill Country) as actually being unique compared to the rest of Texas.

Pretty easy to explain. This region is dead center of all the areas of the state and encapsulates Texas itself. It's the crossroads of most of the state's ecoregions. The home of Tex-Mex and Texas-style barbecue.

They used to sell a t-shirt at the University of Iowa Book store. It said "University of Iowa, Ohio City, Idaho"

There's a store in Des Moines that sells a shirt with a map of Iowa that says "Welcome to Ohio: The Great Potato State" and has various cities from Iowa, Ohio, and Idaho placed about the map.

Good one! When we lived in Iowa, my wife and I took a trip to Boston. We met a guy there who was undoubtably a native. He asked us in his thick Boston accent (think Click and Clack), "Wheah you guys from?" We told him Iowa and he said "That's wheah they grow all the bataydas, right?
