There’s also Pawnee, of course, yet another town with great personality and charm, and for something busier, you can always drive your RV rental to Chatham and Springfield. Almost everywhere you go, the background will consist of cornfields as far as you can see, and there are many historical sites and recreation opportunities around, such as golf.
