Plainview is the city in which Greg and his family live. Its name is revealed in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Movie. Greg lives in the suburban area. The part near Greg's neighborhood, Surrey Street is hilly but there is also a coast line as the beach has appeared and is mentioned many times. It is unknown in which state it is located. But it is possible Plainview is located in Long Island, New York. In the movie, Heather Hills can be seen driving before her 16th birthday, meaning the state's minimum driving age is either 14 or 15 as United States's driving ages vary from states and also Rodrick is said to be a high school junior in one of the early books and still drives a car despite most high school juniors being 14-15. In Dog Days, it's revealed that Greg's dad drove a 4 hour round trip to pick Greg up from the beach, meaning that Plainview is 2 hours away from the coast. It may be likely a town than a city, because Jeff Kinney lives in Plainville, Massachuesetts. Plainville is a town and in Double Down, Greg said "That got me banned from the town pool for the rest of the summer". As he mentions "town" It is said to be a town, likely.
