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 a suburban area.

It is unknown in which state it is located. But it is possible Plainview is located in Long Island, New York or in Massachusetts, but it is probably located in New England, which is also Jeff Kinney's birthplace. A beach is mentioned but this could be in a different state.
