  • All the University Buildings Particularly, Kings College Chapel. A punt down the Cam on a nice day is a must to see all the 'Backs' Cambridge in the UK
  • I don't stay in a city/town, I stay in a village. However, I work in Glasgow. Things to do in Glasgow? 1) Go to museums - Kelvingrove, St Mungo's, the Burrell Collection, etc. 2) Admire the architecture - Glasgow has the finest examples of Victorian architecture in the UK. And we've got Charles Rennie Macintosh as well. 3) Listen to the banter - Glasgwegians are very friendly. And the underlying threat of violence in some places can be exhilarating. 4) Walk along the banks of the Clyde, crossing all the bridges as you get to them. 5) Sample the music scene - King Tut's Wah Wah Hut being the most famous example. 6) Relax in Kelvin Park while all the students do their student-y thing. 7) Shop! 8) Explore the history of the city from the Merchant City to the old ship yards. I'm boring myself now, so I'll stop. :)

  • I'm next door to Katie2. You could go to Six Flags Over Texas, a Texas Ranger Baseball game, or, in 2011, see the Dallas Cowboys play in their new stadium, (that I'M building, the taxes are killing us). It's Arlington Texas.
  • Well, I always like to take my visitors to Pike Place Market, and the Seattle Center. Mostly because they are close, and I feel like they are staples for the Seattle Culture. Pike Place Market has so much to do there, especially during the summer when everyone has their stands out. It's a fun experience. Oh, and I'd make them buy a fish so they could catch it. (They throw the fish to you when you buy it.)

You can find more about it here if interested:http://www.visitguatemala.com/nuevo/mainE.asp
  • I live in Denver and I would tell you to go see a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheater. Its just a bit outside the city in the foothills and you can see the entire city skyline from there.

  • The question was originally posted as: "What country (or city or state) are you from? And what is the one thing your country is well-known for?" My answer was then: Paris, France Paris is well known for: - the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs Elysées, the Sorbonne University, the Louvre Museum, the Cathedral of Notre Dame, the Latin Quarter, Montmartre, and the Georges Pompidou Center France is well known for: cheese, wine, perfume, haute couture and cars (and some other achievements in culture and science) ...and a huge national pride... Above question was marked as a duplicate. Unfortunately, above answer does not apply anymore! I was born in Paris, it is where I am from. But the city where I live is Munich. Here the new answer: I live in Munich, Germany Before you leave Munich, you should have seen at least one of these things, depending on your interests: Museums - "The Deutsches Museum, located on an island in the Isar, is one of the oldest and largest science museums in the world." - "the Kunstareal, including the Alte Pinakothek, the Neue Pinakothek, and the Pinakothek der Moderne." "Before World War I, the Blaue Reiter group of artists worked in Munich. Many of their works can now be seen at the Lenbachhaus." - the concentration camp in Dachau (16 km from Munich) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dachau_concentration_camp - the Hofbräuhaus (court-brewery): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hofbr%C3%A4uhaus - "The Frauenkirche (Dom zu unserer Lieben Frau - Cathedral of Our Lady) is the most famous building in the city center and serves as cathedral for the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising." Incidentally, Pope Benedict XVI has been Archbishop of Munich and Freising http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munich http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munich_Frauenkirche http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_Benedict_XVI - "The Olympic Park with its stadium was built for the Munich 1972 Summer Olympics. The Olympic buildings are famous for their design, which was inspired by dew-covered cobwebs."
  • I was born in Detroit, Michigan...known for automobiles. I have lived in California since I was 3 (known for Hollywood, etcetera), except for 5 years when I lived in Massachusetts (Boston Baked Beans).
  • Google "Chemical Valley" You will likely get a ton of hits for "Sarnia, Ontario". That's where I live right now. Wasn't 'born and raised' here or anything...Sarnia is known for having a zillion chemical plants. Healthy right? Probably the only cool thing about this city is that it rhymes with 'Narnia'. Canada on the other hand, is very awesome. We are known for...beavers and maple syrup? Mounties? lol...

  • The Greyhound station. It will get you out of town quicker than the airport.
  • Not much. There are a handful of pubs but nothing in the way of anything remotely exciting to 'do', well anything at all, exciting or not. I do live very near a big town and I'm only 20minutes train ride from London. It's not all doom and gloom.
  • You couldn't avoid seeing the Pacific Ocean; walk on the pier, take a short boat ride to see the Queen Mary.
  • I wish I still lived in Green Bay, I could find a few things to do. But now I live in a small town of only 18,000. If you'd like we could go water skiing on the lake and grill burgers on the shore. We could watch a baseball game next at the sports bar/restaurant (it's a classy place). I really don't think you'd have much fun here, but I would give it the ultimate shot.
