I grew up across the street from the Lego factory in Enfield, CT.

My brother went to the lego day care, it looks like it's made of legos.


I'm officially jealous... That's awesome.

Since the time I originally posted in this thread (like 4-5 years ago??)... I have moved. The highlight of my new city is the stoplight. We have one.

This is the coolest thing you'll see if you stop by:

I want his hat. Edit: Just saw the name of your image... It's the hat isn't it? That's what makes you think he's hot. Either that, or right after you took this picture, someone set fire to him.

And so I don't get told off for not contributing...

Angel of the North

If I'm away on holiday or whatever, this is how I know I'm home. It's on top of a hill overlooking the city, and is visible from the nearby motorway (highway as you guys call them), and the train tracks.

I hate to bump a post that is so old but I figure in the last few years there's a ton of new people on DIC. I'd love to see the coolest and most unique things in your area! I'll catch hell bumping this but eh..

looks like I already tagged Jungle Jims on the last page a couple years ago haha, so...

Red River Gorge is a couple hours away and one of my favorite camping spots. Last year I hiked up to the Natural Bridge. Below are some shots I took, one below and one from the top.

@Absynthe

There is one in Fells Point called the Greene Turtle. Other than that, I am not really sure.

That's like the only mainstream pub in that neighborhood. There are a bunch of small dive bars that make up Fells point. Thames Street is almost nothing but bars. I'd suggest anything except the Green Turtle. It's a great place for sports & fried food, but if you want a bar in an old city feel, that's not the place to go.

Alexander's
The Cat's Eye
Woody's Rum bar
Admiral Fells Inn has a small bar in the basement
Leadbetters

There has got to be like 10 more.

The "Gateway to Hell" in Stull, Kansas is practically right down the street from me. About a 20 minute drive from my house. That's something interesting in KS, right...?

Probably posted this somewhere in here years ago but parts of the Cannock Chase are within walking distance from my house.
