Hey everyone I'm interested to know if any of you like or dislike where you live and why. I live in Philadelphia right on the outskirts. I've always loved this area because I'm 10 minutes from downtown of one of the 5 biggest cities in America. The ocean and the mountains are just a little over an hour away. There are rivers, lakes and beautiful farmland just minutes away. There is Amish country an hour away. They drive in horse and buggy on the street and you're not allowed to pass them. that can be annoying but their food makes up for it I've never taken where I live for granted and I've traveled fairly extensively, but I think people should be willing to explore where they're from and not just dream about going to Jamaica (which is AWESOME by the way!). Philly gets a bad rap for crime, and there is that aspect believe me, but it has it's upside. If you get pulled over by Philly cops with weed and most likely ANYTHING else, and the cops don't think you're a dealer they will almost without exception just send you on your way...with your drugs!!! They have murderers and rapists to deal with so people like us are small fish. All in all, I LOOOOVE my city. Would love to hear about your hometown.
