Newsmax magazine commissioned Peter Greenberg, best-
selling author and travel editor of NBC’s Today show, to compile
a list of the nation’s most uniquely American communities.
Greenberg sought out cities and towns that embody America’s core values. In addition to ranking the top 25 American locales, Greenberg graded each town and city on a 1 (low) to 10 (high) scale, for 9 different categories, including Hospitality, Culture, Scenic Beauty, and Business-Friendliness.
