Wikipedia says Roslyn, Washington.

When you say “atmosphere,” do you mean the climate and appearance, or are you asking where to find quirky people?

If there is such a place, I suspect it would be in Vermont or Maine. Possibly upstate New York. If you bankroll me, I’d be happy to do the research on this.

I don’t know anything about Canada other than the US wears it like a hat. And some good comedians come from there.

California and Washington state are North but they aren’t very East.

Looking at the thread again, I suspect the question was edited to specify NE after the first few answers, I am sure you all know geography as well as I do and i should have refrained from pointing out the obvious.

Where to find Quirky people in a New England town (Or a SE Canadian town across the border), surrounded by nature, that hasn’t a touristy feel…
