No different than the rest of the BosWash corridor.

I think Miami or Las Vegas are more "out of place"

Most middle class families in Boston area still live in the suburbs and drive to work. On weekend they like to go to the mountains etc. Only those who live near downtown or Cambridge live like New Yorkers.

I would say NYC too, for the reasons already listed. It does have sprawling suburbs, but it's a very dense city with decent public transportation, excellent amenities, and tons of culture, which many other cities in the US just don't have

I would say "none" for Canada because most people in the world don't have any image in mind when they think of Canadian cities!

Valkenburg, looks more like a French village on the border with Germany.

I would go with Quebec City, specifically Vieux-Quebec as it’s the only walled city in Canada and north of Mexico for that matter.

While normally considered stereotypically German all around the world, Munich is actually quite distinct from the rest of Germany. Bavaria offers features that are not common in the rest of Germany, such as a very different architecture, more colourful cities, beer gardens, a very different dialect and a distinct life style and different cuisine.

People are a bit more outgoing, more religious and more conservative than in the rest of the country. Mimic and gesture is more important in daily conversations than in the north of the country.

However, regarding the fact that Germany has some very strict rules Munich is not very distinct from the rest of the country. It seems to be even more strict, e. g. you can get fined for jaywalking.

Cities that are a bit less strict and where people are less conventional are those in the Rhine-Ruhr-Area (e. g. Cologne) and Berlin. People are friendly and quickly call themselves by their surname, the rule of law is not as tight as in most other cities etc.
