Okay, I haven't seen a thread like this anywhere.

In this thread talk about what you hate or love about your city that you live in.

I'll start. I live in Sioux Falls. And the reason why it is so awesome is because when we get a real snow storm about once every three years. Where we have to cancel school on account of so much snow. The reason I say that is because, South Dakota's second largest city, Rapid City, gets out of school June 14th and they were supposed to be out on the 31st of May...

Something I hate about Sioux Falls is that there are too many packers fans (even though the packers fans think the other way around).

I wonder who that is...


Sioux Falls has many more Viking fans than Packer fans, that's a fact.


The thing I like about Sioux Falls is how clean it is. Essentially like one big suburb.

Something I hate... The bars there suck and people are allowed to smoke at the bars. Also, too many small town Dbags with afflictions T shirts and pimped out hondas.

Well, my hometown is back in CA., so I'll just talk about the city I currently live in.

Love: It still has a somewhat small town feel, and is a great place to raise my kids.

Hate: The school system in Bossier City, where I live, is much different then where I teach, Shreveport. Bossier City seems to operate under the "Good 'Ol Boy" system. Since my wife nor I am from here, we may never be able to switch up and teach here, which we would like to do to be closer to our kids. I've seen teaching positions go to people who were less qualified because they "attended that school as a child". It makes me sick.

Well, I kind of identify with two cities as my hometown. So, I'll talk about both.

Texas
Hate: You cannot buy liquor in city limits, only beer and wine. There isnt any thing to do because it's a little suburb. You have to drive to other towns/downtown to do any thing. There are cops every where, but never where they are needed. You see cops all the time but they are patrolling for kids. They could care less that adults are going 10 miles over the speed limit on roads near schools. They just want to bust that kid for going 3 miles over near the high school. Oh, and every thing closes at like 9 on weekdays and 10 on weekends, except the beer and wine stores.
Like: You can walk any where in town, even at night, and never have to worry about your own safety.

California
Hate: It's a town which is no where near any major city. Rich yuppies from Silicon Valley are moving out there because they can build big houses for cheap because you get a sweet mountain view, even though it's driving up property taxes. It's a generally low-educated populace, as UC-Chico is the biggest 4-year college in the area.
Like: You can ski/snowboard any day that the park is open. Mt Shasta is not that far and you're 3 hours from the coast.

I love in Green Bay

I love the fact that I have all the advantages of living in a big city, but none of the disadvantages. Traffic isn't an issue. Crime isn't much of an issue. but, we still have a professional sports team, and plenty of good bars and restaurants.

But, the people can be kinda dumb.

also, Prince, do you work for Georgia Pacific?

Addict
05-11-2009, 11:42 AM
I live in a town called Aalsmeer. Look it up on google maps if you want to know where it is.

Like: my first school was only 100 yards from my house. when I was a kid everyone was pretty much my age, so always plenty of playmates. Not much traffic.

Dislike: boy where do I start? it's small, there's absolutely nothing here shop-wise. The town is too close to amsterdam, so all the stores and shops go there instead. Even though Amsterdam is 20 miles away it takes an hour to get there (public transport sucks). Most people here are simpletons. It's pretty deserted around here. I hate this town. I really, really hate this town. There's so many things wrong with this place I can't even put it down in words. Let me put it this way: if you were to come here happy and smiling, stayed here for 20 years, you'd leave clinically depressed.

No but my father does. His work is a constant reminder for me to do well in school so I can get a quality education and eventually a well paying, enjoyable job so I don't get stuck having to settle working at some place like a mill.

I love how everything is easy to go to in Green Bay as well. If I need anything I can just head down to the Bay Park Square area and I am likely to find it.

I live in Emmaus, PA, a suburb of Allentown, which you can see on maps in Eastern PA near NJ.

Like: Not overly crazy, real laid back place with laid back people. The mayor is a friend of my family. Schools are great for education, rated #2 in PA about 5 years ago IIRC. Relatively safe with lots of places to go fishing. Within driving distance to New York City, Philly, and the Jersey shore, if you plan on going. You generally don't have to worry about being in danger from mother nature, but every once in a while there is an awesome blizzard.

Hate: Not much to do for a social scene. Me and my buddies usually make a littel fire and just chill at night when the weather is nice. (I like that, but not many do) It get really humid, and that sucks. Really though, that is it, i like where I live pretty much, actually.

Love- There is a lot of stuff to do. Food, Bars, Golf, Sport games, you can find anything withthin about 20 minutes.

Hate- Weather. Its unpredictable and usually crappy. I literally went outside to catch some sun on the same day it snowed. And the summers are humid.

05-11-2009, 01:10 PM
Nothing to love, really...except my friends. Love the people but, this place is freaking boring. As for the location of my house itself, I'd say the only real benefit is that I am 5 steps away from a basketball court so, I'll always be able to play some games or just shoot around when bored. I do play everyday....so, there is that.

Hometown growing up, Ringgold, LA.

good things: not much trouble, very small town (population: 1600), close community

bad things: one stoplight, absolutely nothing to do but be country. nothing. and not really close to anything substantial either.

Since then, Dallas, TX.

good things: you can't really run out of things to do, awesome music scene with Austin and UNT being so close, money, and the walmart closest to my house might have been the cleaniest place i have ever been in.

bad things: traffic....oh my goodness. the fact that it takes an hour to get just about anywhere. and prices of things.

I associate two spots as home as well.

Laie, HI:
Love - Everything. I love my family and I consider the whole town my family. It's a little town. Very country. Probably one of the last "Country" spots on the island of Oahu.

Hate - Nothing much to do there, as far as jobs are concerned. No opportunities.

Marina, CA:
Love - Nothing really. My friends.

Hate - Everything. Boring. Wannabe gangsters. Everyone knows me.

Independence KY

Like - Decent sized city, I live in a rural part but I'm just 7 miles from where there is stuff to do. Only 25 minutes from Cincinnati. The big winter snows are sweet, good time to act like an idiot. Mostly middle class, normal people which I like. Very close to the Reds, Bengals and UK basketball which makes me happy.

Dislike - Winter is too long and crappy. As a result the females have to wear too much clothes for a too long of a period.

Mission, Texas -

+: Biggest city in the valley (McAllen) is only a ten minute drive away, you have a lot of things a big city has (save for pro sports teams), great food, traffic is never bad, the expressway will have you in South Padre Island in 1.5 hours tops, a pretty good University is in Edinburg, which is a 15 minute drive from Mission.

-: Small town cops have nothing better to do than pull people over for any reason. Corruption in school districts everywhere. Sometimes, it feels like things are too spread out, like driving home after a night of drinking.

Outer Banks, NC

Like - the beach, warm weather from spring to fall, laid-back place, not much crime
Dislike - lack of things to do, too many ******* golf courses and office buildings/banks, winter when it is cold and there is nothing to do, no professional sports teams even though one most likely couldn't be supported

05-11-2009, 03:54 PM
Likes:
-No crime
-one of the top school districts in the country
-20 minutes to Center City Philly and the sports complex
-20 minutes from every ethnic dining choice possible
-20 minutes from music venues
20 minutes to the largest mall in the United States
-NYC, DC and the shore all nearby/not too far away
-tons of movie theatres nearby including an Indie theatre
-international airport which is a US Airways hub and cheap flights from Southwest
-Multiple grocery stores and shopping options within 5 minutes
-People are pretty friendly
-Lack of sprawl and cookie cutter houses

Dislike:

-Snow (although winters have been mild the last few years)
-Not a ton of restaurant options

I love it here, but I'm definitely going west after I graduate from college.

god. i love 395. i mean you could swim there too. but who swims in the potomac. really.

hi. i live in chicago. more specific wrigleyville.

my likes are: i don't get my ass handed to me by property taxes, i like the fantastic food we have nearby, i live next door to taco bell, there are plenty of fantastic music clubs in the area, i don't live next door to a million yuppies like i would if i lived in old town or the gold coast or in the west loop, i have a back yard, i love winter, i can go fishing on the lake most of the year, public transportation isn't that bad.

my dislikes are: i get my ass handed to me by sales tax, i dislike that all the pizza places around me suck balls, i live next door to taco bell that closes at 5am and attracts every drunk midget for 300 miles, the only bands that play in chicago are bobby bare jr, cascadia, and nickleback, i live next door to a million bro dudes (chads) and trixies (google that one if you need a hand), it's balls hot in the summer and not in the good way, the fish in the lake have sucked since i've lived here, it's so flat bike riding becomes boring (and dangerous from ******* who dno't watch where they're driving).

that's all! i miss home!

Like: 20 mins from Baltimore and DC. 2 hours to the mountains and beach either way. Now with a car there's always something I can find to do. Merriweather Post Pavilion pulls some decent concerts. Pretty wealthy town, Forbes ranked 7th best to live well in: http://www.forbes.com/2009/05/04/towns-cities-real-estate-lifestyle-real-estate-top-towns.html

Dislike: Fairly 'manufactured' town, planned community. Plenty of rich snobby people.

Love: live across the road from the beach, fairly big city with plenty to do, but because the actual cbd is pretty small it doesnt feel big which i like alot, nightlife is pretty good, easily available illicit substances, people are really laid back most of the time, traffic isn't really that much of an issue, very un-sydney-ish, some really nice suburbs

Hate: developing a bit of a reputation for being a drug hole, cbd looks like **** the surf has literally been **** for nearly 6 months now, wish we had a better live music scene

Dislike: Lots of idiots

Gloucester:
Like: Chilled out atmosphere, good people, reasonably large city nearby
Dislike: Less to do

So you like the fact that there are a lot of people but dont like the fact that some of those people may be idiots? Idiots come with the territory of there being lots of people.

Houston:
Like: I was born and raised here so its the place I call home. Houston Texans, Rockets, Astros, Dynamo, and Aeros are all here so we have a lot of pro sports teams.

Dislike: There are 6 million people here and none of them want on their reputation that they take public transportation so they all have to drive their own car. When they all try to get some place at the same time it tends to take a little while.

New Mexico:
Like: Besides the school there is nothing to like.

Dislike: Elevation is 3000 ft and there are never clowds around so if you walk outside for more than 15 minutes without sunscreen then you are guaranteed a sunburn. The town is 1/3 college kids and 2/3 retirement homes. I have come to realize that the speed limit is actually 15mph under what the sign says and to this day it drives me crazy.

Milwaukee, WI (Current kinda hometown and College)

Love: Being just minutes from two professional teams (and yes the Bucks do count, some people don't). I may not be a Brewer fan, but Miller Park is a kick ass place to go see a baseball game, if I had money and more time, I'd prolly go to every one of their home game of theirs when school is in session. And everyone for the most part are very nice, and don't give me too much **** for being a Cardinal fan.

Hate: Prolly all the buses, even though thats how I kinda get around.

Winona, MN: Birthplace and Summer home

Love: Ummmmmmm, this was hard. Well, its Minnesota, we have nice lakes here, a rivertown, nice bluffs. Also, we are only 2 hours away from the Cities, an hour and a half from water park capital of the world: Wisconsin Dells, an hour to Treasure Island (a casino), and 18 year olds can gamble in Minny. A hour from Rochester, MN and half hour from LaCrosse, WI, they have some nice places to go. And it is a cool place cuz it is a pretty good split of Packer and Viking fans.

Dislike: There is not a whole lot to do in Winona, really kinda have to go elsewhere, or the movies.

AND IN BOTH: I hate the weather in the winter. Too cold. Although I like the weather in spring, summer, and fall. Its really quite pleasent.

- we've got the good stuff for whatever vice you may have
- there is ALWAYS something to do. ALWAYS.
- our girls are prettier than your's
- beautiful weather
- the best basketball player in the world plays here almost every night

Dislikes
- **** tha police who have nothing to do but bust kids and raid houses
- It's southern California. People are fake and will stab you in the back to get ahead.
- TRAFFIC

I love SoCal, and I would never leave to live somewhere else. Except maybe Miami.

Maybe after they are done spending their usual $100,000 on plastic surgery.

Its terrible, I avoid eating any vegetable that crunches and most fruits. I only really eat them if they are soft like in a stew. I wish did eat them more so I could grow a little more

My dad told my grandma that she needs to start eating more fruits and vegetables and she said "I am 91 years old and all the people I know that ate vegetables are dead." check and mate.

Well I only lived in my birthplace for 6 years... there was nothing to do there.

Now I live in Raleigh, NC. Still nothing to do.

I've also lived in Texas (best place, but humid as ****) and a desert in Washington state (I wanted to kill myslef). The biggest news to come out of where I lived was the "Kennewick Man". I bet you haven't even heard of it.

Don't be jealous ;) Our girls really are just born that hot. You're confusing our young kitty cats with their cougar mothers. They're the ones who are hot after having their plastic surgery done.

It's common knowledge that the further away you get from the ocean, the uglier and fatter the girls get.

Baltimore:

Love: the people, and sports culture. Can't wait for the O's to become relevant again. And that our highways are not fast (i am not an aggressive driver)

Hate: I sometimes hate the weather. And the crime and pathetic school system

Considering that Houston has one of the highest rates of obesity, I am going to say that's terribly false.

If you think it's cold as hell there then come up north a bit more. Seriously. MN is much colder than SD. I'm so glad spring is started to show.

Zero - People in Miami start to expire. Minnesotans lick the flagpole.
20 below - Iowans fly away to Mexico. People in Minnesota get out their winter coats.
40 below - Hollywood disintegrates. Minnesota Girl Scouts are selling cookies door to door.
60 below - Polar bears begin to evacuate the Arctic. Minnesota Boy Scouts postpone "winter survival" classes until it gets cold enough.

Sudbury, Ontario

Likes:
-perfect city size. Has areas where you can get alot of shopping done, but also areas where it feels very quaint (sp?) and intimate.
- enough to do so that you can't get bored
- cops don't care a whole lot about the amount of parties or how loud they get
- friendly people
- only four hours away from TO
- not much crime, at least not where I live

Dislikes:
- four hours away from TO and the closest major sports teams
- the roads here are the worst in Ontario, possibly even in Canada
- not a whole heck of alot of job opportunities
- the whole city seems very spread out...have to drive at least 20 minutes for the best golf course and 30 for the best shopping areas

Yeah, I really don't find Nashville to be that cold in the winter TBH. Night life just really depends on where you are. There's also lots of good food and shopping places. I don't notice the rednecks as much, but maybe I'm immune since I've lived here most of my life. There are some really pitiful drivers here though.

Cincinnati, OH:

Likes:
-Decent size city
-Plenty to do
-Not far from OSU and OU for partying plus UC is no slouch.
-Awesome Zoo/Museums
-Literally five minutes away from major sporting events(Reds, Bengals, Cyclones)
-Pretty good sports tradition at almost every level except the NFL.
-People are generally pretty down to earth and nice.

Dislikes:
-Downtown is pretty lame though the new Banks project should be pretty sweet.
-Borders Kentucky
-Weather and by that I mean we experience a huge difference with the changing of the seasons. Summers are very hot and humid while the winters can get pretty darn cold. Almost never really comfortable.
-People are pretty ignorant around here. Especially when it comes to sports.
-Cops are big time assholes especially within the city limits. Probably has something to do with the fact that most of them are German(Gestapo?). Haha jk, but they are absolute dicks.
