I live in Omaha, NE and absolutly love it! The metro is approaching 1 million people and it has a good steady growth rate. Traffic is not bad you can get from one side of town to the other in roughly 20 minutes. Housing is reasonable and good jobs are realitvly easy to find(home to 5 fortune 500 companies) Weather is not bad it never stays the same for more than a week it seems like. Altogether I am very happy here.

Yes I do love my city, and I think everybody knows that, lol. I wish everybody would, but it's understandable why some people don't. Oh well. Their loss.

Other places that I love very dearly are my family hometowns of Brooklyn ("Like No Other Place On Earth!"...the real New York) and Augusta, Georgia (the garden city of the South).

I love Kentucky but I don't love how schizophrenic Louisville is. On one hand it wants to be seen as a Southern city by the tourism department but then the mayor sees it as Midwest. I see us as Southern. It seems no one knows how to classify themselves and you can tell by the 5000 are we southern or midwestern threads. Also, the part of the county I live in (SW) tends to be neglected because it's not where all the money is. Other than that, Louisville is a great place.

I love detroit. one minute your eating in Greektown with over twenty greek resturaunts, to gambling in a casino, or hitting up a downtown night club, or just taking a stroll along the magnificent riverfront or skating in campus martius park. or simply just staring in awe to the sea of towering skyscrapers.

I love Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, PA. As a history and architectural buff, there are just so many areas here that ooze character, charm, and appeal. As a metrosexual, it's nice to be just two hours from Manhattan or Center City Philly (yet still having a fraction of the cost-of-living, crime, and congestion). My commute to work, even at rush-hour, is 15 minutes. My commute to campus, even at rush-hour, never exceeds 20 minutes. We have four wonderful seasons of changing weather---from intense summer heat waves to crippling winter blizzards. While I wish the area was more diverse and tolerant of people of other faiths, cultures, races, and sexual orientations, it's nice to see us heading in the right direction with each passing year in these terms. Our economy collapsed in the 1960s-1990s in the wake of the loss of the mining industry, but we've since rebounded with major installations for companies like MetLife, Lockheed-Martin, Prudential Financial, Sanofi-Pasteur Pharmaceuticals, Sallie Mae, etc. We have over a dozen great universities and institutions of higher-learning. We have beautiful mountain scenery that affords opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, whitewater rafting, and skiing. There's just not much to not like about our area.
