I love rural or small town settings. Being officially diagnosed as a schizoid I would love to reside in a small town somewhere in California. I have seen it in so many movies I make a note and keep them for record. For example:

Basic Instinct. Catherine Tramell's house is located in a town called Caramel By the Sea. Lovely town although most people would shudder to live there permanently.

Dante's Peak: I love the town this was shot in. I am forgetting the exact name.

British Columbia has a tonne of such beautiful quaint locations: Steve Martin's Roxanne was shot in Nelson, BC. Gorgeous town.

ny more examples

The towns in field of dreams, promised land, Groundhog Day, the majestic and winters bone come to mind for small towns. I also love rural settings especially in movies. I know there are many more.

Tender Mercies starring Robert Duvall and Tess Harper comes to mind.

In The Bedroom, starring Tom Wilkes and Sissy Spacek. Set in rural coastal Maine, part of it filmed in Trevett.

Wherever they filmed Jaws looked nice. The nicest little town I've actually ever BEEN to was Annapolis, MD. Quaint times 10.

Wallace, Idaho. It doesn't actually have a huge peak over it like in the movie though. If you want a small town with a view like that try Eatonville, WA.

You might like the town in "Disorganized Crime" (1989), it was filmed in Hamilton, MT. It's still a relatively small town.

That's funny, I don't care who you are.
Maybe the Dirty Harry movies would be a good example of why we should stay away from San Francisco.

or that town portrayed in the film/show "the Lottery "


after watching that, I wished I had never seen it.
I am not a sensitive person, but that town depicted in that movie creeped me out!
