Your favorite town and why?

Asked by Skaggfacemutt (9805points) October 19th, 2011

Of all the places you have lived or visited, what is your favorite town and why? I am looking for things like weather, location, activities, landmarks, cost of living, traffic, and/or shopping. Thanks!

Amherst, MA – 5-college area, very liberal, plenty of outdoors/hiking, coffee, food, near Northampton.

Santa Barbara, CA – Possibly the best weather in North America. Beautiful. West coast.

I love where I live now, the Lotus/Coloma river valley in the heart of the Sierra Gold Country in Northern Ca.

I like the natural beauty, our magnificent river, the local farm trails, vineyards, wineries, ranches and gardens. Placerville is only about 20 minutes from me and they have a historic Main St. lots of fun shops, restaurants, the historic Wagon Train parade, a great Xmas parade, and, I am only about an hour and 15 minutes to Lake Tahoe.

I’m a mountain girl at heart! :-)

Beautiful beyond measure are the towns of the British Isles. It is like they take the heart to a whole new level of joy and assurance that life does have meaning after all.

I grew up near Tweed, Ontario. That is one lovely little town that no scandal can ever permanently tarnish.

I aspire to go to Savannah, Georgia. If I ever got married again, that would be a beautiful spot to celebrate!

Boca Raton, FL
Springlike weather 8–9 months a year.


Palm trees

Blue skies

Easy to fly anywhere (airports in Palm Beach, Ft. laud, and Miami)

Great shopping (bloomingdale’s, Saks, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstoms, Tiffany’s, Willams and Sanoma, Crate and Barrel, and on and on and on).

Well maintained roads, although traffic can be heavy, but typically is moderate.

Good medical services.

High average education level.

People from many parts of the country, although there is a high percentage of New Yorkers there.

Beautiful outdoor malls with shops and restaurants. Great for evening strolls, meeting up with friends, dinner, and entertainment.

Theatre, the Broadway shows come through Ft. laud and Palm Beach, not very far away. Along with symphony and other programs.

Great restaurants.

Low crime, although like anywhere crimes do occur.

Great lifestyle. Pools in almost every subdivision, rec centers and social directors in many of them with organized events throughout the year.

If you prefer a more rural setting you can go to other parts of South Florida.

Drumnadrochit in Scotland. It sits on Loch Ness which is my ideal view and I found it had a slight sleepiness about it.

Whilst driving through parts of California and Arizona earlier this year I enjoyed many of the towns we passed through.

I also have a fondness for the town my Grandmother lives in, Clanfield in Hampshire. I have many memories attached to that place.
