Columbus, Ohio
Columbus was often considered a good test market, but there are doubts to the concept that columbus is the slice of america it once was. The cities population is considered not hispanic enough to truely reflect the country these days. In addition, Columbus has one of the youngest populations in the country, 31 is the average age in the city, not counting college students. The city has a too large of a gay population to be all american and single population, young professionals. Much changed in the 90s.

My first pick would be Philadelphia, since that was essentially where our nation was founded and the first big American city, but these are some good ones too:

7. St. Louis, Missouri
and last but not least

Peoria, Illinois

Those are some of the cities that I consider to be "All American"
