Hi! I am writing a story and I need some help finding a city/town to base it from. I need something small, quiet, but just outside a larger city. (My main character works in a big city, but goes to the smaller town very often.) Trying to stay away from the south...no offense to the south, I am Southern. I am picturing a big house, big oak trees, big yard kind of place. So, what do you think?
