Where do you live (city/state)? San Gabriel, CA (LA County)

How long have you lived there?
All my life

What''s fun to do there? Fun? I wouldn't necessarily call it fun here but we do have a few places to eat (I love food) and shopping areas near where I live specifically. But if you're into historic things we have the mission.

Is it expensive? It kind of is, I guess.

Family Friendly?
Yes. Parks, lots of schools.

Do you love it?
I would like to stay it if at all possible so I guess so!

Where do you live (city/state)? suburbs of Philadelphia, PA

How long have you lived there? all my life

What''s fun to do there? Great city life: restaurants, bars, clubs, theatres, concert halls, museums. We have a team for every major sport, and our fans are obsessive! We're close to the mountains and the shore. We have a ton of historical sites, and some great shopping :)

Is it expensive? Not compared to NY or LA. But compared to everywhere else, kinda.

Family Friendly? I guess? I don't have a family, so I never really thought about it. My little suburb seems to be.

Do you love it? Most of the time.

Where do you live (city/state)? Las Vegas, Nevada


How long have you lived there? I have been here for 6 months


What's fun to do there? Oh man. Where to start? There are plenty of things to do on the strip, but I love hiking at Red Rock Canyon, and heading to the local dog park with my little furry monster.


Is it expensive? To live here. No. To have fun on a weekend. Yes. There are free things to do in Vegas, but when you spend money there are plenty of things new and exciting to see and do (ie: shows, shopping, dining).


Family Friendly? I don't think so. I think there isn't enough museums and good stable life and culture to raise a family.


Do you love it? The fact that you get an awesomely beautiful house/apartment for a good price, I love that. But the fact that there is nothing of substance to do or see (I love museums and theme parks ---California) I do no love.

Where do you live (city/state)? Bayside, NY (It's a suburban section of Queens)


How long have you lived there? Since I was 3 years old. We moved into a 2 family house when I was 3 and then moved into our own home when I was 8. :) Still live in the house from when I was 8. 


What's fun to do there? There's plenty of shopping! Lots of boutiques and regular chain stores. There's hair/nail salons too. There's a lot of restaurants, casual or dressy, ranging in different diverse cuisines. There's nightlife too, which has become great for my as I've gotten older. If I don't want to go into the city I can stay right in town and go to a bar or lounge. There's cafes too which is nice! I love that everything I want/need is right in town. Also, we're super close to the city which is convenient. 


Is it expensive? It is extremely overpriced. It's listed as one of the most expensive housing markets. We're so close to NYC so prices are inflated around here. The school system is great and it's really safe so it's an ideal place to live if you want to be close to the city but not in it. 


Family Friendly? Yep. Most of our neighbors are other families. It was fun when I was little because there was always someone to play with. 


Do you love it? I do! It's home to me.
