According to a urban planning class I took, the two most Germanic cities in the US are Milwaukee and Cincinnati

Northern midwest, parts of Texas...German influence is all over since Germans are the best represented nationality in the US. 80% of Caucasian ppl I would say have at least a little german ancestory.

Ever hear of Frankenmuth, Michigan. It is very German, the entire city is founded and based around the German culture.

Default Seymour Indiana

Seymour is located off of I-65 at the US 50 exit. HUGE GERMAN CULTURE! They have German style houses, they even host an October Fest each fall. Im not too sure about Seymour having any German restaraunts, but it has more German culture than I have seen in any other town. I wouldn't move there myself, but by all means, go for it!

South Dakota has a lot of German and Dutch ancestry. My favorite restaurant is a Bavarian cafe in Hill City, SD.

To be specific about Ohio Valley cities, Evansville IN according to the 2000 census was just under 25% people of German decent. Louisville was around 15%. Cincinnati was around 20%, Owensboro KY was at 13.2%. Huntington WV at 11%. Pittsburgh just under 20%. New Albany and Jeffersonville in Indiana(across the Ohio River from Louisville) was at 21.7 and 18.9%. By the way, Milwaukee was 20.9%, St. Louis was 14.7%, Buffalo 13.6%, Baltimore 7.4%, Syracuse 12.2% and Rochester 10.9%. There are many suburban communities around these cities with higher percentages too. Can't forget cities like Saginaw, Midland and Bay City in Michigan too.

Pittsburgh's German district seemed smallish and run down - though I did see some really cool olde half timbered houses. I mention it because I want to recommend Max's German restaurant - Wunderkind!

Helen Ga is more of a gimmick than authentic german.
