I forget whether it was Charles Dickens, Samuel Johnson or someone else who said, "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life," but I'll bet I can find some Parisians, Buenos Aires residents, St. Petersburgers (not Floridians) and, um, New Yorkers who might disagree.

Your point about Americans broadening their horizons isn't off base, but consider how big this country is. In the same distance that it would take you to reach Moscow, an American would have made it from one of the coasts to either Utah (headed west) or Ohio (headed east). And you would have passed through four or five different countries and languages, not counting the countries where you begin and end your trip, while the American wouldn't have left their native country.

And the regional variations are not trivial. I wouldn't confuse Philadelphia for Atlanta, either of those for Chicago, any of those for Kansas City, and any of those for Los Angeles, Denver or San Francisco. And of course, those last three are each different from the others.
