GTKY: What's the best thing about where you live?

I am stealing this from January.

What is the best thing about the area you live?

I used to live in Philly, so the best thing would be Cheese Steaks and Amorosa Rolls.... Now I live in MD, so the best thing is definitely the MD blue crabs :-)

  • Well being a Philly girl I will agree with the cheese steaks (now I want one, booo you wh0re).

    I love the history of it all... I have been on the duck tours about 5 times with various visitors, and I love it each time!

    When you drive anywhere you get to see lots of baby farm animals in the spring...?

    Don't get me wrong, I love me some farm country, but let's be real, South Bend is not exactly known for being a wonderful place to live.

  • I live in Colorado and the weather is unpredictable and changes so fast. It was 79 degrees on Mon. and we have 16 inches of snow of Wed, but it is almost always sunny regardless. Each day is different and you never know what it's going to be like-I love that.

     The town I live in is also has more beer breweries then any other city in the US, so good and inexpensive beer is plentiful here.

  • We were in Buffalo until last summer... there I would have to say the festivals- there is a festival almost every week in summer- wingfest, italianfest, polishfest, taste of buffalo... always something to do (again, in the summer).

    Now we're in Westchester County... I love the small towns and quaint village aspect along the Hudson. I love the restaurants- we tried an amazing lil taco/burrito place last weekend. Best burrito I've ever had. 

    Growing up in CT, I loved two things... the county fairs in the fall, and the ocean in the summer (including yummy seafood at Lenny & Joe's Fishtale!)

    I live in Oklahoma and the best thing is the low cost of living.  DH and I bought our house at the height of the market and we paid $125k for a 1400 sq ft house.

    I do believe we may live in the same place ;)  I love that being outdoors is such a part of the culture here, along with the BEER!  Hooray, beer!  But, being a southerner by birth, I'm not into the 16 inches of snow we got yesterday.  Boo!

    The best thing about where I live right now is that it is very centrally located. It seems like just about every store I might want to go to is within 15 minutes of my house. We are also just a half an hour or so from Philadelphia, so that's great too.

    I live in MO...right outside St. Louis. I can't think of anything exciting, maybe because I've lived here my whole life. Sooo, I'm going to go with the Cardinals...and the Blues since they are in the playoffs right now :)

    I live just about an hour from Lake Tahoe. We have amazing bike trails, hiking trails and a gorgeous lake. I already got our double jogging stroller, bike trailers, and a beach tent and we plan on spending majority of the summer at the lake

    I also live in STL, but on the IL side of the river. So I will definitely say Cardinal baseball and currently Blues hockey.

    I will add to that Imo's Pizza & lots of breweries.

    I also like living in my very small community where I know everyone and feel safe.

And Coast Guard Festival)

    I'm in the Chicago area.  I love (in no particular order): Portillo's, going to Cubs games/being in Wrigleyville (even when they suck, which they usually do), going to the city in general for amazing restaurants/bars/nightlife/comedy clubs/etc, Chicago style hot dogs, Chicago pizza (but I don't like pan pizza, I prefer Chicago thin crust), all the shopping that is conveniently so close to me - although my DH probably dislikes that part, having all 4 seasons.  I'm sure there's a ton more, but that's what comes to mind right off the bat.
