    Made me laugh metamorphasis! LOL. Schools closed due to snow......hahahahaha, that's hilarious!

    Anyway, my city, Calgary, is awesome because it's the cleanest in the world, the people are great, wages are reasonable, people vote the right way, we have a ridiculous amount of olympic athletes, and the natural beauty is superior to Vancouver any day of the week. (mainly because we're not walking through rain all year round) Although, if I had a choice, and could afford it, I'd live in Vancouver hahahaha!

    My best online friend lives in Calgary. It has always struck me as a friendly and clean city, but I may be projecting my affection for my friend onto her city.
    They're running just like you
    For you, and I, wooo
    So people, people, need some good ol' love

    We have all four seasons, though it is arid so we have a mimimum amount of snow fall on the valley floor (clear roads 98% of the year).

    The whole metro area (about 500k) is pretty crime free, it has an amazing & friendly (and sometimes just fucking comical) downtown bar scene. A small portion of the city uses geothermal heating, a nice, clean river runs straight through the town that people float during the summer months. (until recently it was prefectly legal to drink and float). Its situated along the foothills to a bigger mountain range, we have a ski resort 30 minutes away. If you are into water sports there are three nearby resivors. The cost of living is dirt cheap, I used to rent a three bedroom, two bath house w/2car garage for $800. To the south we have a desert like conditions, and the lax laws make it an awesome place to enjoy motorsports. Also if you enjoy college football we have the best team in the WAC.

    Many of the posts here have veered into the cost of the area where the poster lived so I don't see the need for such crankiness.

    Thanks for the tips, Wolfy!

    I love a lot about Idaho especially the fresh air, open spaces, beautiful scenery, the stars are more vivid than anywhere I've been, also, my visit to Idaho was filled with good memories. I slept really well while I was there. If I were American, I'd spend time there if not live there. I like the craters of the moon as well, and the beautiful small towns made beautiful by the amount of celebrities who vacation there regularly. Romantic, is how I'd describe it.

    And to Mo and Wolfy, I stand by what I said, you've offered me nothing a google search couldn't already do, and if tone could be conveyed over a forum post, hilarity would be inferred in the tone of the comment not crankiness! lol.

    There's a lot of people from different places here, and everyone's got their reasons why where they live rocks. So let us know

    If I were, for example, going to California, what are must-dos and must-sees, and what are the cheapest ways of getting good food, rooming, etc? What to avoid as well (this is not limiting this thread to Cali)
