Are Small Towns in the USA That Don't Get Visitors From Big Cities And Tourist Destinations Still Practicing Empathy And Reasoning Toward Inclusiveness With People Who Are Full Of Endless Thoughts And Ideas Who I Suspect Would Still Be Known And Loved And Trusted?

All this capitalisation reminds me of Winnie the Pooh.

Yeah it got capitalized where I typed it and then I quickly copied and pasted and then posted on this forum. Whoops

I can't work out what it's asking even when I look past the capitalisation.

Not sure what you are exactly saying. However, if you are asking about visiting a small town in the US will you be accepted? Why not? Unless you act like a fool and do stupid stuff you will probably be accepted. You pay for accommodation, buy your own meals and not cause trouble you shouldn't have problems.

Some tourists who visit big cities choose to stay in hotels in smaller towns where the rooms are cheaper.

If you intend to sleep in the woods or in doorways and beg for food and money not everyone is happy with panhandlers and bums.

Small towns in the USA are usually very friendly and welcome visitors. I much prefer them to cities. Do a little research to find small towns that are easy to visit and have things to do. We were headed to Chicago once and a Virtual Tourist friend suggested we add Galena, Illinois. We did and it was our favorite stop on the trip. It's a tiny town but has historic buildings, a museum, lots of shops and nice restaurants and hotels, including the oldest hotel in Illinois where we stayed.

There are lots of cute towns like this all over the USA. You just have to find them.

That would have been me, Beausoleil. :O)

I'm frankly baffled about the question. First off, it's more important that YOU are receptive to small towns that aren't tourist magnets. The locals will be curious about a visitor from abroad but less interested in someone "full Of Endless Thoughts And Ideas" than someone using their ears versus their mouths. As a guest in their 'home', what sort of "ideas and thoughts" do you think YOU need to give them, and why do you think they'd care unless they ask?

I'm from a small U.S. town and can promise you that you'd be received very politely ( the terms "loved" and "trusted" are WAY over the top) but not if you go on and on about your own thoughts/ideas. Additionally, small towns almost always require a car to get to, and can be short of accommodations. There's only one motel in my own, and it can be booked full for whenever there's a wedding, funeral, graduation or festival in town.

"Still"? Have you previously visited small towns in the U.S.? And can you explain what you mean by "empathy" and "reasoning"?

The original post suggests English is not the posters first language. However, the second comment (above) is about as good as English gets from most native speakers so I'm assuming his first language is English. I'm wondering why the stilted presentation in the original post. It almost isn't a question. Or it could be something he's asking for someone else?

Curious . . . :)

Yes, I'm guessing English is not the first language but it's still a curious 'question'. Why?

Towns don't ever really practice empathy though do they? People do. And most towns are made up of all kinds of people - some undoubtedly more empathetic than others.

OP needs to clarify the question though and give some more specifics. I'm suspicious of the intent here.
