I live in Hammond Indiana - what I love about here is that I am halfway between a major city and a national park. It's nice that we have suburban life - amenities with space. But, it's really cool that downtown Chicago is just a 30-45 minute drive to the northwest - so really awesome museums, performing arts, and dining are super close. At the same time, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is about the same travel time to the east - so you can get the quiet solitude of nature nearby as well. Some nice trails there too.

Pensacola, Florida - There is so much to do here. We enjoy hiking, camping, boating, scuba diving, and just being outside with the granddaughter!

I live in a smaller city with lots of problems but it sure is nice that I can get anywhere in 10 minutes - 15 during "rush" hour. Traffic makes me frustrated and impatient as it's such a waste of time!

I love johannesburg in early - mid summer. The streets are crowned with purple jacarandas - mixed with pink bougainvillea (some of which is so old that it reaches to the top of the trees) and pink and a different colour purple pride of india trees...beautiful

I split my time between my hometown and Toronto.

In my hometown, I love the architecture. You can tell when certain parts of the city were established based on the architecture. We also have a lot more older homes.

In Toronto, I love the subway. I also love that you can blend right in and you just become part of the city no matter how long you've lived there.

Country living with lots of animals. Usually hear the roosters in the morning, the horses in the afternoon. In the distance goats, sheep, and cows graze. And we have the most beautiful white cranes.

I live in Johannesburg - and I love its energy. Its not beautiful (grew around gold mines not water and the dumps are sandy landmarks all over), but there is a vibrant energy in this city. And I love this time of year when everything is green, the heat of the day is released by late afternoon quick thunderstorms and the trees are lined with purple and pink from jacaranda trees and beautiful bougainvillea...

What I like best about the city I live in is that it is a small town with a small town feel, however we are close enough to the city to have things we need. Not a big city, but a city with the necessities. In you live in our town you know people and they know you. They take the time to wave as you walk down the streets. They stop and have a chat, they are not in a hurry up and move state. They have that good old West Virginia hospitality. If someone is in need they have your back. and vice versa. I have lived a lot of places and I always come back to West Virginia.

Look out, SP. You could sell your state/home emoticon Makes me want to visit.

I live in a big "small town". Rural but not so much. What I like best about Cedar Rapids is my church family, being in the hub (close to east, west, north and south) I'm spoiled when driving across town takes only minutes, not hours.

Small town - I feel safe, including walking the streets late at night.
Our Capitol Complex (state capitol grounds) is the most beautiful! The perimeter of the complex is 1 mile. I can walk the entire perimeter(1 mile) in about 17 minutes. I love that I can walk and know the distance I've walked without much thinking or figuring.

I live in a rural area 1/2 way between Richmond and Williamsburg, VA. I have lots of historic interests around. I am close to the ocean, to the mountains and Washington D.C. Lots of places to visit/walk, just have to get in the car to drive to a lot of them.
