Nah. Orlando's pretty plain if you're not a tourist. Someone (who I can't remember) pretty much called it when they said "It's a great place to visit, not a very good place to live."
 
Lots of neat places south of Orlando though. Lots of beautiful trails and marshes. :)

I live in Durban, South Africa

We're the 'Forgotten City' because when people think of South African cities, they most probably will only know Cape town and Johannesburg.

Its not that bad living here. There's good food, good weather (and we have better women than the rest of the country :p) It's not perfect but nowhere in the world is.

I wanna say I said that to you, but I could be wrong.

I never liked the marshes over here. They were always hot and sticky and swampy and buggy. It was just like a Vietnam movie without the threat of communists.

Welcome to Norfolk 
 
[snip]
 
Absolute sh*thole

Didn't think I'd see someone else from Norfolk here. Mind if I ask whereabouts you're from?

Anyway, Norfolk, for me, is so-so. I like Norwich, and, I don't know, I've never felt threatened (until someone was stabbed, um, a couple of miles away from my house) but I'm from a small village. Everyone knows everyone else's business. People talk. I don't like that.

I like living just a short walk from the beach, but the lovely, grey North sea isn't much of a boast. And there's a tendency to feel like you've seen everything the place has to offer once you've seen a few things.

Do I want more from my life? Of course. I mean, I could comfortably live in Norwich, as long as I could travel. Here, I've always just felt kind of ... trapped.

Also, I work in Great Yarmouth. That's ... fun.

Well, where I currently reside recently got voted as the most desirable place to live in England, taking in factors such as quality of life, crime rate, public services etc.

 

Welcome To Skipton!

 

Have to say I pretty much agree with this statement...to an extent. One of the major problems with this town is the fact it attracts so many tourists, but being only a small town, with footpaths only wide enough to walk one foot in front of other, it can sometimes become a frustration just to get to where you want to go. I mean, I had to work a shift in a pub round Xmas time, and it took me literally 10 minutes to walk a distance that usually takes like less than a minute. The other problem with the town is how stuck in the past it is. Boasting over 30 charity shops within a 15 minute walking distance, and all the other shops being cafes or whatnot, it really can suck when you want to go shopping, and the closest town being Keighley, a town you really really want to avoid unless you have a death wish.

 

Apart from that, the town is excellent, and I genuinely mean that.

Nope. The scenery is great but the people are morons and we live under the impending doom of earthquakes. 

 

It's a pity everywhere else in the world is a bit of a downgrade.

You're asking me if I enjoy living in the southwest of Norway; where the sun doesn't set completely during summer nights, the girls are blonde and voluptuous in form, where we have huge mountains and massive fjords, and where we have endless beaches?

Dearborn, Michigan is cool. It's considered the Arabic capital of the US, location of the Ford Motor Company headquarters, is rather diverse with the massive differences between the East and West, and has a fan freaking tastic amount of abandoned buildings and other mysterious and hidden away areas to explore. :ph34r: :ph34r:

My city:

 

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.

barcelona2013.jpg

 

 

I like most of the things from my city.

 

Things i hate:

 

- Islamists that create Ghettos in areas in the suburbs or in "El Raval"

 

- People who support the independence

 

- FC Barcelona

 

- Hippies that act as poor people but come from a wealth background and have a brand new Iphone on their pockets.

 

- Gypsies that steal on the subway or sell dope on the streets

 

-People from Pakistan that think it's okay to open their shops 24/7 and end up destroying business that where opened for more than 50 years ago.

 

- Taxi and Bus drivers that act like the road was theirs

 

- Bicyclists that want the rest of the motorists to respect them but they don't respect anything.

I live in Harlan, Kentucky. I love it here. It is quite and peaceful and it is layed back here. We still have coal mines but they are declining due to Obama of course. Where I live is known as "Bloody Harlan" due to its past. People who live across the country of different countries may not have heard of it but people from Tennessee, Virginia, and Ohio sure know about it. The summers here are hotter than hell and the winters are colder than Liquid Hydrogen. But the weather is perfect in the spring.

What I dislike is how the old buildings in the center are decaying and the governor does nothing about it, and another thing I dislike is the lack of creativity of the architects who designed the commie blocks that infested the city like these:

I haven't been able to fully experience it(personl issues & lack of money) but I like where I currently live compared to everywhere else I've lived. It's a nice decent sized beach city(about 110,000 people). Very chill, big state university, very little violent crimes, Hollywood east, nice people etc. Not very scenic but it's decent for what it is.

Wow bumping the topic ftw nah just kidding but anyway yeah i like where i live its nice, but like trips area, it is now more upmarket which is a good thing and a bad thing. Wollongong used to be a rural country sort of place but now it is becoming "the new sydney" holiday  destination since it is only 45 mins away which is making our house go up in price but the downside... is where did the locals go, i mean there are still a few around but it just feels more distant then what it used to be. 

eg my mums place housing commission right near the water 10 years ago, no one wanted to live there but now every house is close to a million to be even in the area and same with my nans place, 10 years ago 500 grand now double that so yeah anyway here are some photos and a virtual tour.

Here in Southern Ontario? f*ck no. It's really, really hot in the summer and extremely cold in the winter. And my city? There's nothing distinctive about my city. The only thing I like about it is that there are more nice cars than average. There are quite a few nice cars that I see regularily, including a matte black GTR Black Edition, a Tesla Model S P85, an 13' Impreza WRX STi sedan, a Jaguar XF, a Lexus ISF, etc etc. But if I really want to see an overload of nice cars, I have to go to Toronto, which is about an hour away.

Seattle's always been my home (apart from some time spent living in Eastern Washington), and I like it here. That is apart from the traffic, high prices, and spoiled Microsoft kids who have no clue how the world works, it's great.

Santa Barbara is heaven; its what Malibu was once but 10x better.

Google image search Santa Barbara for yourself and see the beauty. You all need to move here, yo. Unless you're trashy.

I live in Silicone Valley. I have so far not been able to find a better place to live. Close enough to the ocean, great climate, very little in terms of insects or other pests, and pretty much everything around is upscale middle class. Traffic's annoying, but that's what motorcycles are for.

As far as the place itself goes I like it, but the people I really want to be with are all elsewhere and that makes it so it's not where I want to be.
