Natural landmark like the beach is really something to be proud of. Although a coastal city, shanghai has no beach in its real sense. Thanks for responding.

I live on the edge of a coastal town in Somerset, England. The landmark is a pier that had a fire last summer. Luckily it is being rebuilt but that is likely to take until 2010. If I am meeting a friend another landmark is the attractive Winter Gardens.

Thanks for responding. India is a great country, and in my impression, Indian mothers are the best mothers of the world. Their patience and kindness must have a lot to do with the personality of their children. God blesses.

I live in Mumbai, India and there are plenty of landmarks here. The most famous is the Gateway of India , a memorial structure from where the last troops of the British Empire left the shores of India after it gained independance from British rule. Then there is the Rajabhai Tower, which is a clock tower built on the grounds of the Mumbai University. Then there is the famous Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus(CST) , the railway terminal building which was formerly known as the Victoria Terminus. This became famous last year when Pakistan based terrorists attacked and killed a number of people here and at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel building not very far off from here. Then there is the Marine Drive or the Queens Necklace as it is popularly known.There are many landmarks in this city and if you visit it you can see them all.

I live in a town right between San Diego and Los Angeles, California in the US. Southern California is pretty touristy and the landmarks are places like the beach, zoo, Seaworld, water parks, Museums, Aquariums, and Legoland to name a few. What is funny is that we don't usually go to the beach unless we have family visiting - which is really sad because we absolutely love the beach and have a great time everytime we go. Maybe this year we can make a special effort go make it out there more often, especially since our kids are getting a little older and would probably love making sand castles and all that. Before in prior years they were too young to really enjoy that.

I live in Colorado and the Rocky Mountains are the best to see in Colorado. They are part of the Continental Divide and some of the mountain passes are so awesome. A great place to hike, camp, raft, and ski.
