    I'd have to go with the waterfront in Toronto Canada, except for winter.  It is where musicians, artists, venders all gather and eat lots of hot dogs.

    That or Sneaky Dee's pub uptown  lol

      In the city "Buffalo NY" the closest "real city " to where I live the best part some would say the water front...across the lake from you Kim.. but personally I think the best places are the expressways -leading out of the City-
      190 is on the waterfront- you can see Canada and the river   Roye 5 you can see the Lake  and the 33 you can see the undulations of the Limestone strata caused by the stromatoporoid reefs below These are the best placesbecause you are leaving the City.

      Although learning too sing, especially songs that relate my life, like "Timing is everything," and singing because of the woman I love, I am, by no means, a musician.

      And as a retailer and someone who knows nothing of Toronto's waterfront, I couldn't sell in Canada, because Canadians fear Southern Californians as we don't follow rules, and not that I know anything, and am brutally over generalizing here, but Canadians love their freakin rules and wanna be perfect society, at least in Toronto...

      But I am this....  at the waterfront, in front of a majestic steel schooner, drawing the most incredibly beautiful woman I have ever seen in my life, and then, at her table in awe of her genius at Sneaky Dees, or anywhere in the universe for that matter, but, to be honest, alone with her at at a little campground where the true beauty of Canada exists would be a dream first place I would go...but hey, if there's one thing you can say about this SoCal artist... I'm a romantic and I will love and cherish one woman for eternity...

          Pubs in Toronto are more dangerous than Mexico, financially speaking of course..they murder your wallet and all its contents...or so I've been told..

          I'd much rather be sitting at a pub in Jamaica, man....screw the storms...

    We live and have raised 6 kids in a small, village-like, town just outside of Hershey Pa, and the best thing about it - my kids have all talked about how this was the best place for a kid in their time to grow-up in. That's what first comes to my mind when I think of what i like most about where I live . . . if I go on to elaborate on what those things are that I think make it special, I would include; it's one of those towns that, while it itself is a small town, filled with local shops and neighborhoods, it's close enough to Harrisburg (less than 20 minutes) and even Philly (less than 2 hrs) that we can take advantage of those things only a big city can offer. Even though we live in a small town, over the years we have seen as a family The Who, Eric Clapton, B.B.King, etc, etc . . . and the kids have all seen Broadway shows with grandma, etc, as well.

    Meanwhile, every kid in town goes to the same high school, the streets are easily 4 lanes wide but just casual neighborhood streets, and I enjoy vigorous Sunday School discussions with the local chamber of commerce president, the guy who runs the local comic book shop, etc. And, I'm not exaggerating; the best pizza/shop I've ever eaten at is 3 blocks one way and the best Chinese restaurant ever is 2 blocks the other way. It's a great place to live and a great place to raise a family.

    The street where I live. Saunders Ferry Road is surrounded by Lake Hermitage on one side and the cove on the other. There are all kinds of herons and geese, ducks, turtles, and boats. No sidewalks, just a narrow road running down the penisula. When you get to Creekwood Marina, that's where I live. There's the marina on the lake side, across the street is Steamboat Bill's Cajun fish restaurant and a convenience store that sells live bait. There's nowhere to build so it will stay beautiful. Whenever I come home, down my street, I feel like I'm on vacation.

    PS - Also the setting for both my novels. Creekwood & Creekwood 2. Sorry, had to give a plug.

    Tough one. Having lived in Edinburgh and London and now finding myself back in my old home town (that no longer has so much as a decent pub that you can walk in to without risking being brutally murdered or at least violently assaulted) the only thing I can think of is being back amongst people who understand my accent! smile

    Like previous poster, the road out beckons like the Eastern Star...
