i'm planning on travelling a lot this summer. i want to know what is the one thing to see in your town if i were ever to come there. i like going to the smaller towns and seeing historical sites. is there something in your town that is a must see. i live in cornwall ontario, if you were to come here i'd suggest going about 25 minutes out of town to the upper canada village. it's a heritage site that shows people how they lived in the 1800's. it's lots of fun and lots of things to do and participate in.

You are probably going to find this hilarious but we moved to this town about 9 years ago. It is out in the country. there is no Walmart or anything here. We have to drive 15 miles for that. We have no restaurants or anything here and they do not want any. We have to drive 60 miles just to go the mall. The talk of the town around here is about a tree. Alot of people for years, have thrown their old shoes up in this tree. It is a monument here. They call it "The Shoe Tree". They have had stories about it on the news. It is unreal what people do to draw attention to their area, laugh out loud.

that's cute, a shoe tree. i grew up in the country. we had to drive half an hour to get to the mall and we didn't have much around, not even a shoe tree.

There are so many things to see in Halifax that I hate to narrow it down to one. However, it would be hard to come here and not see Citadel Hill. In the summer they have people there doing reinactments. Oh. I forgot - if you come the first week of July there is the military tattoo that has acts from all over the world. It's awsome to see, but kind of expensive so I havent been there in a few years.

Well it's not exactly in my town but one town over and that is the Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks. It's this long street where they have a ton of shops but they also have a mueseum and boat rides along with tours that show how they do the diving for sponges. You can get real spongs and loufahs that have been brought up along with conchs and other shells. It's a tourist trap but it is one that is a nice thing to visit. You can also get Greek food there since it's a huge Greek community. The baklava is so good. Mmm might have to take a trip there just for that soon :)
