There are no single things in particular I would call amazing that couldn't be found elsewhere. But it all rolls together into a nice package.

A hotel made completely of Ice. There's also lots of snow and darkness.

South Surrey,BC. It's part of the Metro Vancouver area. To name a few awesome things about it...
 
For some reason, they'res a massive amount of young, hot women here. And not like slutty hot, real hot.Especially this one girl at Cob's Bread....but i digress. Umm i live 5 minutes away from the US border which i took advantage of on Saturday when i went to Birch Bay. I had a Tollhouse chocalate chip cookie ice cream sandwhich and Mountain Dew Code Red and i said to myself, "god bless America":) We don't have those in Vancouver. I live close to a kick ass comic book store near White Rock beach. 
 
I lived in Germany for awhile and I was within walking distance of the resting place of The Berlin Wall. That was pretty neat. Germany has a ton of cool stuff btw.

We have a lot of cool (but disappearing) French/Canadian heritage, some nice nature, and shit loads of Somali immigrants. Woohoo.

I live in Camden right now so I'd have to say the restaurants and the markets.
 
Otherwise if I still lived in sweden it would be all the hotties in skimpy outfits.

Well I live near Guysborough now, but we visit there every so often. I really like it there, regardless of how small it is. My grandparents and mom grew up there though. And we still have lots of relatives there. One of the roads is actually named after the family's last name.

I get to listen to lots of super cool and awesome gun shots and sirens and the occasional helicopter, so it's easy to stay awake thanks to all of the delightful loud noises happening. I guess that counts. <_<;

#117 Posted by dr_nefarious (1614 posts) -

Coolest thing about where I live? Probably the fact that there's a restaurant on basically every corner stop. Well actually I don't know if that's a good thing...But we do have NASA! :)

We were the first European settlement in the United States.  Unfortunately, a hurricane forced the people leave and come back later, therefore eliminating us from the record of oldest continuous settlement, which is held by St. Augustine.

The greatest thing about Boston is Newbury Street,period.(Newbury Street is a major shopping district). 
 
The worst thing is that everyone at the local bar makes fun of you when you say aboot (im canadian).Which sucks.

Toronto... I guess we're retardedly multicultural, and lots of inter-racial marriages equal a large proportion of gorgeous ladies, of every flavor. Inbreeding is so passé. 
 
Also we have a good film industry here too, if you're into that. 

#127 Posted by Suicidal_SNiper (949 posts) -

We have the highest teen pregnancy ratio in Canada and I believe STD ratio as well. Yay for us?

Toronto Film Festival and some expo of some sort. Either way, Toronto is fucking boring.

@LiquidPrince:  look:
no roof in the middle, and most of the walls are made of cinder blocks, so lots of openings for water
#132 Posted by jschmoe (142 posts) -

I'm going to take your question literally - the coolest thing about where I live is the temperature.  Winters are fucking COLD.  -40 is not uncommon.

#133 Posted by JessicaBoo (404 posts) -

I will go max cheese lol, but being with my boyfriend is what makes living in Canada superb. :) Plus is a city is a lot of things around here. But when im England, the best thing about living there, is living at 20 minutes drive from the Theater of Dreams. Yes. The Manchester United stadium. I used to work there, :)

Being able to get pretty much any kind of food in the world.  And have it be good.
 
Off the top of my head, I can name legit Mexican, Japanese, Chinese, Ethiopian, Guatemalan, Cuban, Italian, Korean, Indian, Brazilian, Vietnamese, Russian, Mediterranean, Thai, Ecuadorian, Polish and Spanish restaurants here in Chicago. BBQ, tapas, sushi, pizza, steakhouses, shabu shabu, whatever.

The specific part I'm from? Well, the West End in Glasgow is pretty chill.
