  • My hometown is known for its beaches and constant sunshine and warm weather.

    But now I live in Chicago, and I would agree with what you said, though instead of pizza, I'd say food in general. We have great food in Chicago. I'd add the skyline too. Every time others mention Chicago they say it had a beautiful skyline, and I agree with that.

  • Kansas City is best known for our barbeque. And that we have the awesome Kansas City Royals who won the 2015 World Series as our baseball team.

    Hey, remember when the Cubs beat the Cardinals into the ALCS? Wasn't that epic? I know people who are still fuming about it.

  • We are actually known for a spectacular accident.

    there was a mining accident. it was quite a big thing in the media. some tunnels collapsed and miners were closed in. like a week after there was a huge bore made to find a place where miners were thought to be closed in. they actually found them but by a crazy coincidence. they actually made a mistake and searched in a spot they didn´t plan to but there was actually the place they were closed in.

    weeks later they were rescued. it was quite a big thing, cause they had to invent a mashine that could bore a huge hole and then but an elevator like container down there to get the dudes up. untill then they got water and food through the bore that found them.

  • Oasis, and gun crime... =/ That's actually an outdated view though.

    It's actually an awesome city. Fine, it ain't gonna win any beauty contests. But it really is a hub of open minded and new culture.

  • Rn I live in Los Angeles, which is... Los Angeles. Doesn't need an introduction.

    I grew up about 20 miles down the freeway in Long Beach, which gave the world some of the best hip-hop of the '90's.
    Snoop and Nate went to my high school, and the street corner where Warren G hooked a left in the lyrics to "Regulate" is less than 2 blocks from the house where I grew up (and where my father still lives).

  • I'm from Calgary Alberta, it's known for the Calgary Stampede which is a huge 10 day carnival with outdoor concerts, rides, a parade, a rodeo (but I don't care about that ), a huge outdoor show with acrobatics and dancing, fireworks, and people have huge parties all around the city. It's nice because it's only like 25$ to get in and then you can see any concert you want I've seen Lights, Katy Perry, and One Republic there to name a few. I mostly go for the carnival aspect and the concerts I don't like the rodeo stuff. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0zpn9_ikJc
