I found some cool things looking up my city i didn't know about! Tell us why your community kicks ass!

Here goes my hometown of Palmdale CA http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palmdale,_California


"Palmdale refers to itself with the nickname the "aerospace capital of the United States", and has been the site of research, development, final assembly, flight testing and/or servicing/modifications of the Space Shuttle, X-15, B-2 Spirit, F-117 Nighthawk, F-35 Lightning II, SR-71 Blackbird, Lockheed L-1011 Tristar, and many other aircraft that have been used in the United States Air Force, NASA and air forces and airlines around the world."
- We get to see all sorts of military aircraft flying around everyday and drive past an outdoor museum that shows off the original SR 71 blackbirds and a huge ass B-52 right along the road.


Movies: Bubble boy, The terminal, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End,Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Notable residents: Afroman(rapper), R. Lee Ermey(actor,drill instructor from full metal jacket), Sean Franklin(MLS player), William J. Knight(pilot/astronaut), Niecy Nash(reno 911,the view) Debbie Rowe (mother of Michael Jackson's kids and ex-wife) and John Wayne!

Bangor (from Irish: Beannchar)[1] is a large town in County Down, Northern Ireland. It is a seaside resort on the southern side of Belfast Lough and within the Belfast Metropolitan Area. Bangor Marina is one of the largest in Ireland, and holds Blue Flag status.[2] In 2007, and again in 2008, the town was voted by Ulster Television viewers as the most desirable place to live in Ulster.[3]

It is primarily residential and can be viewed as a commuter town for the Greater Belfast area, from which it is linked by the A2 road and a direct railway line. Bangor is situated 13.6 miles (22 km) east from the heart of Belfast and thirty minutes by train or bus with George Best Belfast City Airport even closer.

Bangor is part of the North Down Borough Council area and is twinned with the Austrian city of Bregenz, and the US city of Virginia Beach. The Mayor of Bangor is John Montgomery and the Deputy Mayor is Harry Dunlop. It is also host to the Royal Ulster and Ballyholme Yacht clubs. Tourism is important, particularly in the summer months, and plans are being made for the redevelopment of the seafront; a notable building in the town is Bangor Old Custom House. The largest remaining individual land owner in the area is the Clandeboye Estate, located a few miles from the town centre. Ballyholme Beach recently failed to meet basic safety standards according to the Marine Conservation Society. This means that the bathing water at the beach is not recommended for swimming,due to the levels of bacteria it contains.

Isn't that fucking interesting?

The Twin Cities, Minnesota: Tons of great venues ranging from absolutely tiny holes in the wall that you wouldn't notice unless someone points them out to stadium seating shows and everything in between. There's a huge art scene, huge music scene, the second or third largest theater scene in the US, the most bike friendly city in the US(suck it Portland), the hipster capital of the US(Let's not talk about that one), and we're like Texas when it comes to High School Football when we watch High School Hockey. Seriously, the state tournament sells out a 19,000 seat arena every single year.

People from Minnesota: Bob Dylan, F Scott Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Sinclair Lewis, Prince, Jessica Biel, Diablo Cody(She wrote Juno), both of the Coen Brothers, Joe Mauer, all of The Replacements, Husker Du, Craig Finn(Lifter Puller, The Hold Steady), Slug from Atmosphere, and Dan Wilson(Semisonic)

Plus we're surrounded by Iowa, the Dakotas, and Wisconsin, so we look ten times better by comparison.

I live in a census-designated place, not a town or city

http://www.pointreyes.org/inverness.html

Many old-timey traditions survive: swimming lessons at Shell Beach (at the end of Camino del Mar), a full calendar of sailing races in summer, foot races on July 4, and in early spring, the garden club's Primrose Tea. To walk the shady lanes under a canopy of bay, oak, and pine, is to sense a bygone era of endless family picnics, with kids meeting up to adventure in the woods or camp on the beach - an era, observes local writer John Grissim, which if it didn't exist, it certainly should have.



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inverness,_California

Inverness is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) located in western Marin County, California. Inverness is located on the southwest shore of Tomales Bay 3.5 miles (5.6 km) northwest of Point Reyes Station,[3] at an elevation of 43 feet (13 m).[2] In the 2010 census, the population was 1,304. The community is named after Inverness in Scotland by a Scots landowner.

Inverness is north of San Francisco, on a bay of the Pacific Ocean.

Portions of the John Carpenter film The Fog as well as most of his film Village of the Damned were shot in and around Inverness.

Gothenburg, second biggest city of Sweden. A classic social democratic/labour city with a port and a tradition of strong support for the communists and socialists.

A lot of old sea romance and passion in the culture and art. Lovely stuff.

Montreal is the largest city in the province of Quebec, the second-largest city in Canada and the seventh largest in North America. Originally called Ville-Marie, or "City of Mary, the city takes its present name from Mont-Royal, the triple-peaked hill located in the heart of the city, whose name was also initially given to the island on which the city is located, or Mont Réal as it was spelled in Middle French, (Mont Royal in present French).


French is the city's official language and is also the language spoken at home by 59.9% of the population, followed by English at 19.4% . In the larger Montreal Census Metropolitan Area, 67.9% of the population speak French at home, compared to 16.5% who speak English. More than half of the population reports being able to speak both English and French. Montreal is the second largest primarily French-speaking city in the world, after Paris.

Montreal is consistently rated as one of the world's most livable cities, was called "Canada's Cultural Capital" by Monocle Magazine and recently was named a UNESCO City of Design. Though historically the commercial capital of Canada, it was surpassed in population, as well as economic strength, by Toronto after 1976. Today it continues as an important centre of commerce, aerospace, finance, pharmaceuticals, technology, design, culture, tourism, film and world affairs
