)-- Peter Greenberg has criss-crossed the country many times during his 30 years as a travel and TV news journalist, and he’s seen all kinds of towns: big and small, depressed and prosperous, industrial and agricultural.
Newsmax magazine asked Peter to name the "25 Unique American" cities that embody America’s core values—those special characteristics that distinguish American cities from any other around the world.
They may not be the first places you think of when planning your family vacation, but maybe they should be. These are the towns that are outstanding in their efforts to embrace community, culture and conservation.
According to Greenberg, the "Top 5 Most Uniquely American Towns" are:
1) Wichita, KS
2) Madison, WI
3) Chapel Hill, NC
4) Bend, OR
5) Ogden, UT
