* In the Family Guy crossover, the Griffins reach it fairly quickly from Quahog, Rhode Island. That would seem to suggest Springfield, Mass.

Despite being described as a tiny "jerkwater burg", Springfield has multiple elementary schools, two multiplex cinemas, several universities, an army base, a naval reserve base, an Air Force base, a television studio, a Spanish-language TV station, its own radio market (its jazz station being the most powerful in the US), "Area 51-A", the international airport (receiving direct flights from Bombay at 15-minute intervals, plus [[http://simpsons.wikia.com/wiki/Springfield_International_Airport many other destinations here]]), a transit system including buses, streetcars, elevated tracks, an abandoned monorail, and two subways (one operational, one abandoned), football and baseball stadiums (Springfield was awarded an NFL franchise!), a hockey rink, a Popsicle stick skyscraper, at least two mental hospitals, a house of ill repute, several shopping malls, a dozen correctional facilities, a FriendlyNeighborhoodChinatown, Tibettown, Greektown, Little Italy, a Russian district, a {{Gayborhood}}, and a Jewish neighborhood; more factories, retail outlets, eateries, museums, theme parks and night schools than most states, as well as vast expanses of desert, lakes, large river (with a dam), forests, chasms, swamps, farmland and blasted heath, and three gigantic mountains that turned up one episode but aren't even visible in the skyline at any other time...

* At the end of [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS11E19KillTheAlligatorAndRun "Kill the Alligator and Run"]], the Simpsons are [[PersonaNonGrata banned from ever returning to Florida]]. In the final scene of the episode, Marge is standing next to a map of the United States, with 48 of the states crossed off, leaving North Dakota and Arizona as the only states they haven't been banned from. [[PlaceWorseThanDeath Bart gives good reasons why they should never go there in the first place]], and she crosses them off too.

* Not to mention that their state capital is, in fact, "Capital City." (This seemingly proves that they're not in Illinois, since Illinois's state capital is, in fact, "Springfield.") Their state bird is apparently the pot-bellied sparrow.

* In the 11th season episode [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS11E22BehindTheLaughter "Behind The Laughter"]], the narrator says "the future looks brighter than ever for this Northern Kentucky family." And then to add to the confusion, multiple versions of the line (''"…the small island of Lanai…"'') were recorded for syndication and are available on the 11th season DVD set.
