So, we decided not to include the most obvious and well-known places that represent the best of American music. We figured you didn't need us to tell you about the towering musical legacies of New Orleans and Nashville, of Austin, and Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. (But here's a plug anyway: Go!)

Asbury Park, N.J.
"I saw rock and roll's future, and its name is Bruce Springsteen," a critic famously wrote in 1974 after hearing a raw young rocker whose exuberant debut album, "Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J.", bristled with working-class poetry. "The Boss" also turned out to be a big part of Travel Top 10 places in America to enjoy music | USA WEEKEND Magazine SURF
Los Angeles
Pop culture exporter to the world, Southern California lists drive-through burger joints, romantic comedies, skateboarding and paparazzi stakeouts among its inventions. Another is surf music. An amped-up mix of rockabilly and R&B, the genre emerged in and around L.A. in the early 1960s, performed by and for surfers. Dick Dale, known as King of the Surf Guitar, introduced a heavy reverb that captured the adrenaline rush of riding a pipeline. Bands like the Ventures and the Surfaris helped make the blissed-out music a coast-to-coast sensation with such hits as "Walk Don't Run" and "Wipe Out." The Beach Boys softened the sound, added luscious vocal harmonies and made the style America's official soundtrack of summer. The best place to hear surf music and the subgenres it spawned -- from pop punk to skate rock -- is still L.A., where the sun is always shining and the next big wave is already building. COWBOY
Gene Autry, Okla.
Forget apple pie. Music doesn't get any more American than singing cowboys. In the 1930s and '40s, Western performers such as Roy Rogers, the Gene Autry

roped and crooned their way to superstardom. Autry alone appeared in 93 movies and sold more than 100 million records, dominating the airwaves with hits like "The Yellow Rose of Texas," "Tumbling Tumbleweeds" and "Back in the Saddle Again." The golden age of cowboy music lives on at the Gene Autry Oklahoma Museum in Gene Autry, Okla. (The tiny town named itself for Oklahoma's Yodeling Cowboy, who owned a ranch nearby.) This year, fans from all over will gather there Sept. 24-28 for the museum's annual film and music festival, featuring vintage Westerns, cowboy poets and storytellers and lots of good old-fashioned campfire music. HIP-HOP
Bronx, N.Y.

moving, he bought extra copies of his favorite
records, cued up the best riffs on multiple
turntables, then stitched the segments together into extended funky
interludes. Herc or a sidekick often shouted rhymes over the loops, an
innovation borrowed from a Jamaican party tradition called "toasting."
According to fellow hip-hop pioneer and Bronx resident Joseph Saddler,
"When Herc's bass came in, the whole place would be shaking." Saddler
himself -- better known as Grandmaster Flash -- spread the fresh sound
to the wider world with his huge 1982 hit, "The Message." For a guided
