I am from Minnesota, a state known for it's over 10,000 lakes. The town where I am from has two lakes that the town was built around. Both lakes are beautiful, surrounded by trees and lush grasses. They support hundreds of boaters, fishermen, and tourists that stop to visit. The city has also installed a fountain that is lit with a show of lights that changes colors every two minutes. From red to green, yellow and blue. It's beautiful and fun to just sit on the shores and watch the colorful show. In the winter when it is frozen, there is ice skating, snowmobiling, and ice fishing on the lakes. What is the very most special feature of where you live? Are there gardens, or a special feature like buildings that have been restored? Share your favorite thing about the place you live!

I live in the suburbs of Stockholm, Sweden. I love it here because it's so close to the hustle and bustle of the city, yet still very calm and close to nature. We have a lake close by, and even though my apartment is only two minutes walk from the busstop I have just as close to a small forest. Stockholm is also a very beautiful city, with lots of water and parks. If you ever come here I recommend taking a walk in the Old Town or out on Djurgarden. There are plenty of old buildings and streets in Old Town, and a lot of beautiful nature on Djurgarden.

I am from Guangzhou, China. It's one of the biggest city in China. There are not more so special here. But we have a famous saying: Eating in Guangzhou. That means to say you can find various delicious foods here. The cheap and expensive restaurants are available everywhere. We enjoy nice foods.

I live in a very small town half way between Cleveland, Ohio and the Pennsylvania line. Our town is little, but it is widely known for it's annual Maple Festival in the spring of each year. People come from all over a 3 state area to attend this event. We're also known as the snow capitol of North Ohio, because we have the highest elevation. That means that every time it snows, we get it, and we get a lot of Lake effect snows from Lake Erie. Our town has worked hard to keep it with that small town flavor. We have new 'old-fashioned' looking lamp posts, signs, traffic lights, etc. It's really a quite beautiful town with a planned flavor of yesteryear. Very picturesque. Our square has a log cabin in it, a large gazebo (for summer band concerts) and our courthouse is the original from in the 1800's and is a beautiful domed design.
