Smile Sell Me Your Area.

Imagine that you need to advertise your area, this could be for Tourism, or to encourage people to move to the area.

Just the good points, I think.

For where I am, I could say;

Hundreds of square miles of open countryside, most accessible by public footpaths.
Many properties with room for a number of Ponies.
Short walking distance to a number of Traditional English Pubs/Inns.
Easy access to many Cities, via a well signposted road and rail network.

A typical view to be seen.

Here is a picture of a fairly new Taco Bell. It had a nice garden outside and a marble water fountain. Inside, the tables were made from granite and the floors are colorful and bright. We're talking Taco Bell here.

Wow, beautiful pics everyone. I think I'll wait until we have majestic beautiful snowy scenery, or a prairie sunset over the water.

I could not cell my area in a million years... It's too hot too long, racially, politically and religiously divided, ignorance and non-progressive mentality is wide spread. Education and child welfare are very low priorities. Unemployment is high so is violence (in certain areas). Livable wages are lacking and the housing market is severely challenged. Oh and there is no water, but we have really great winters

Although those are very pretty pics, so nice, if I owned this town, wouldn't sell at any price, especially to some investor who would turn our quiet hospitable friendly everyone knows everyone little town into some higher dollar community with condos convenience stores on every corner, cookie cutter houses everywhere and higher population for his own benefit. No offense intended too investors, but sometimes smaller towns are better off staying small for a reason.
I do know though that San Diego is indeed very pretty.

And sometimes "smaller towns" stay small because nobody has any desire to live in them.

Some folks enjoy the small towns as they tend to be quieter ... Other folks, such as the Chatteress, enjoy larger cities because of the amenities and easy access to mass transit, variety of food options and places to go.
