I like mine because we're 2 hours from Atlanta; 2 hours from the mountains; and, 2 hours from the coast. :) I also like our neighborhoods, our golf courses, our architecture, and our annual golf tournament.

I like Norfolk Virginia because it's surrounded by six other cities of various sizes.We also have rural counties and lots of suburbs.There's a lot to do and see here.

Tuscaloosa is inexpensive, and there's abundant nature (lakes, rivers, trees), rich history, and a very stable economy.

Having about 32,000 college students in town is pretty nice, too & provides some balance and variety.

I love the central location, too, as it's a short drive to many of the South's most distinct places, such as New Orleans, Atlanta, Chattanooga, Memphis-Tunica, Biloxi, Nashville, Pensacola, and Destin-PCB, in addition to the variety within the state. Alabama's most populous county is on one side, and Alabama's least populous county is on the other, so there's a good variety locally between rural and urban elements.

Regarding my hometown of Little Rock:

1) That it's a fairly progressive town that has really pushed remakings its downtown and historic preservation of its older neighbhorhoods. Also, that it still has a thriving middle class and upper class that would never consider leaving for the suburbs.

2) That its unique position at the junction of 3 Arkansas geographic regions leaves the western part of the city in the Quachita mountains with beautiful scenery yet just East of the city it's delta country with plantations, oxbow lakes, and Southern charm - all of this set along the beautiful blue Arkansas River.

Hot Springs-

-A National Park

-A Downtown tucked between mountains, with hot springs gushing out at the center. An incredibly vibrant downtown at that

-mountains, a few lakes, a theme park, a horse racing track, one of Arkansas' 2 casinos, documentary film festivals, classical music festivals, etc......

-Historical importance relative to its size: hideout of al capone, discovered by De Soto in 1600s, President Bill Clinton's hometown

Huntsville, AL

1. High tech job market and community focus on science. You'd be hard pressed to find a mid-sized city anywhere in this country, especially the South, that has more job opportunities for scientists and engineers. NASA, Army Redstone Research Arsenal and scores of high tech companies big and small make it ideal for my line of work.

2. Big Spring Park. Beautiful park downtown which is arguably the focal point of the city and it is expanding as we speak. One end of the park is the spring that the city was founded around, which turns into the Indian Creek Canal, then forms a small lake. Concerts and art festivals are held here during warm months.

3. Conservation land and state parks within the city limits. If I want to go for a nice hike, I have lots of options within 15 minutes. Monte Sano State Park, Huntsville Land Trust properties, Hayes Nature Preserve and Green Mountain Nature Trail to name a few.
