I looked around for a thread similar to this one, but couldn't find it.

I'm curious about what people consider to be the most scenic, beautiful, nicest parts of where they live. Think of them as the place you'd take someone who's never been to your city to show off how nice it is. Post a link to Google Street View for everyone to see!

I'll start:

Pretty parts of Norfolk:

Thank you for asking people to link to Google Street View.

I like the pics of the different cities and styles.

Philly:
Hard to narrow down one area..
Boathouse row:
https://www.google.com/maps/@39.9696...5LvHyBPOjw!2e0

Headhouse Square, historic philly: https://www.google.com/maps/@39.9431...1oR76ypIBg!2e0

Resdential old school: https://www.google.com/maps/place/He...f172cb3eb117b7

City Hall, Center City: https://www.google.com/maps/@39.9534...YHFxhFUoRw!2e0

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Ci...37bf3c8ff3255a

Walking on the Parkway is nice when it isn't around rush hour:
https://www.google.com/maps/@39.9572...SkHiXY9W2w!2e0

Then just the classic rows of row houses:
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Ci...37bf3c8ff3255a

what two lane streets look like:
https://www.google.com/maps/@39.9851...UZLVjc4REg!2e0

just random looks. I am sure someone who knows west philly better can pick out better ones. I just love the look of Philly and really is a view back to a bunch of different eras.
