Usually these are geographically isolated, but some may have cut their ties to the outside world intentionally (these cases less often have any indication of their geographical proximity to anything), giving a certain taste of mystery and perhaps helplessness with the common stereotypes of small town folks thinking "outsiders" to be bad and the common-ish idea that such places have their dirty little secrets.
