The city we live in now is “famous” (I use the term loosley) for having the oldest 4th of July parade in the state, and one of the oldest in the country.
EVERYONE gets all decked out for 4th of July, and the houses are decorated so creatively!

@sweetchiquita12:  I forgot Ford too. Such bad publicity for this great city!

Lots of Pennsylvania bees? I’m from Philly so definitely Cheesesteaks (please don’t say steak and cheese! grrr), soft pretzels…and for the state, definitely Amish country and hunting.

I’ve been in DC awhile…so sex, money and politics?

@jesssamesssa:  Oh cool!  Yeah, I’ve lived in 5 or 6 states and we came back to Wyoming because it’s just so unique.  Open space everywhere <3

I’ve never been to NC but I’ve heard it’s beautiful.

@lolot:  NC has its areas I guess.  We have beach, farm land and mountains.  I do love the mountains though, we go every January with our friends.

CRABS!  Even the Christmas light displays reflect our obsession with them!

@LittleButtons:  Until you go you have NO idea. It is on EVERYTHING. My Darling Husband loved the hotter chilies, is that the yellow? We actually bought packets that were frozen and brought them back. Delicious on hamburgers (veggie burgers for me). The food there is just amazing and the people are so nice. We stay at Hotel Andaluz (love it!).

You have to go sometime. My favorite was the morning glow where they light up the balloons when it is stil dark outside so they are glowing.

I’m living in Charlottesville, VA, which is famous for Thomas Jefferson and the University of Virginia.  And wine, we have a lot of wine.

I grew up in northern Maryland, and my county’s dubious claim to fame was being the birthplace of the Booth family, once known as famous actors but infamous for John Wilkes Booth.  Also, Cal Ripken’s from the southern end of the county.  And the port was a famous haven for pirates in the early 18th century.  So there you go.

Eastern Ontario is known for Farming (part of Canada’s Milk Belt)

And History & Tourism … much of which ties into WATER

We are surrounded by water…

Infact, the whole Province of Ontario is known for water.  We have more Fresh Water here (Great Lakes, Lakes, Rivers, Creeks, Streams) than anywhere else on earth.

My closest city, Ottawa is Canada’s Capital City.

Alabama is known for Space Camp and college football.

NJ where I grew up is known for Jersey Shore (they aren’t even from Jersey!). Also, the shore and salt water taffy 🙂 They are also known for not being able to pump your own gas and jug handles (having to go right to turn left). And not known for this but there is an abandoned Nike missile site across the street from the middle school I went to. It was part of a circle of them that surrounded Philly.

All of you guys are making me miss WaWa!

My hometown is known for barbeque and fiberglass pigs that are set up around town. We even have a festival that celebrates it!

Great place to grow up vegetarian! lol!
