Agree with Steve-O, can only add the people especially.

For my home city, Philly, I'd have to say our food!
Scrapple, Hoagies on real South Philly style rolls, Soft Pretzels, TastyKakes ...and, of course Cheesteaks (Whiz) @@ Can't find anything but horrible imitations (at the most) anyplace else :>)
And who's ever heard of Pork Roll outside this area?

dear lord - scrapple!!! that is *so* philly - i can barely look at it!

but pork roll? i fried up a batch of taylor ham a few days ago....so bad, yet so good.

my philly father in law swears the best cheesesteaks are gaetanos in willingboro NJ - the rest of the family swears by them too. i'm not a fan of cheesesteaks so i'll take their work for it.

My old hometown, Rochester, has a gastronomical delight known as a "white hot". When I was a kid, I assumed that every place in the world had them, but you couldn't even get them in Buffalo or Syracuse. They are delicious!

The best single thing about my present hometowns (Minneapolis/St. Paul) are the lakes within the cities. They are all completely surrounded by public land and are open to all. If you are wealthy and want a piece of one, the best you can do is buy a house across the street and admire them from your yard. The rest of us, we walk, bike, skate, ski around them and swim and fish in them. They are the jewels of our cities.
