Travel brochure ;)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So, I think everyone should list some things about where they live... such as if they were making a travel brochure. This gives other people an idea of where you live.

You can list the weather, best time of year to visit, places to see, places to eat... and this doesn't have to be stuff from the internet- it can be from your own personal experiences living there.

Just list whatever you think I would like to know if I was going to visit where you live.

I'll start:

I live in Scottsdale, Arizona

http://www.scottsdale.com/

Population (As of 2000): 202,705

Time to visit: During the winter season (way too hot in summer!!!)

Places to visit: Big Surf Water Park, go hiking, visit Flagstaff (it's a city), and the Grand Canyon. Also, you should really go to some night clubs...

Places to eat: Pretty much anywhere in North Scottsdale. Israeli food is good and Indian...I would suggest trying something new while your here!

I live about an equal distance from Akron and Cleveland, both are fantastic cities!! in Cleveland there is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Great Lakes Science Center, the second largest performing arts community after Broadway, 3 national sports teams, the Indians, Browns and Lebron's Cavaliers! We also have a world class amusement park within a 2 hour drive, Cedar Point, not to mention the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, then there's Lake Erie itself, great fishing there. In both Cleveland and Akron there are fabulous zoos, art museums and a semi-decent nightlife

I seriously could go on and on about NE Ohio, it is a great place to live, I just wish more people could see that and move here or stay here at least

I live in a strange limbo between Somerville and Branchburg, New Jersey (my mailing address is Somerville, but mapquest says I live in Branchburg haha)

http://www.branchburg.nj.us/
http://www.somervillenj.org/

Population (As of 2000): ummm...

Time to visit: When you're on your way to a more exciting place, such as nyc or atlantic city??

Places to visit: Hmmm...the local shop rite or starbucks? Well, there's the printmaking council of NJ, main street Somerville for shopping/food/friday night car shows.

Places to eat: There's actually a 5 star restaurant nearby, where helicopters can land to bring guests. Cryans Irish bar/grill for some fun nightlife, New Orleans Restaurant for an amazing sunday brunch, Loukas Last American Diner for a little bit of everything.

I live in Collierville, TN right outside Memphis, TN

Population 38,678 (Memphis 670,902-if they havent all killed each other yet)

Best time to visit: I would have to say sometime in the late summer....around January.

Places to visit: Hmmmm. Well, you could go.... Maybe..... There is the train in the middle of the square that someone thought at one time would be a good thing to spend tax money on....

I really want to move away. I was looking at the Collierville home page just to see what they had to say. Shopping- woo-hoo!(sarcasm) I guess if you are into antiques we have an antique mall. Other than that we have regular stores.

Then there is the "restaurants" - yup, again, pretty much the same thing you can find anywhere. I did work at a place that is know for it's burgers for 8 years, but the main home of this "chain" is Memphis. The one out here just isn't the same.

So, then I checked under "outdoor activities"-- It said to check back another time. There really is nothing to do here and I cannot wait to get out of school to go somewhere else!! Maybe Montana or Colorado....

Bristol TN is on the state line of TN and VA. The Certified population is 25,435.
Bristol is a small city set in the side of the Appalachian Mountains.
