Is your city/town notorious for something?
Tulsa Race Riot. Believed to be the single worst incident of racial violence in American history.
I think most cities/towns that are known to people are known or notorious for at least something.
It's a part of Silicon Valley.
No, but I used to live in a town that called itself "the horse thief capital of the world." There was even a sign. Don't know why.
Oh I forgot about Steve Prefontaine.
Surf a City USA
Surf City USA
No, Huntington Beach.
Santa Cruz also claims that title, but I don't get it.
There have been legal battles regarding the title but HB won the right via trademark.
Glass and sex trafficking: Toledo... Home sweet home.
Also sadly Columbine.
Morgantown is know for partying a little too hard. And for having an amazing university.
I just moved to small town and football is big there. But the schools mascot is the Yellow Jacket. And we see DOZENS of actual yellow jackets everyday.
Meth capital of the world.
We have the best horse riding trails were I live
Notorious being a negative connotation points to Wichita's sad history with the BTK serial killer.
On the famous side is, "Air Capital of the world".
"Charlie's Famous Hamburgers" 3200 W. 13th Wichita, Ks. 67203. Get the "Charlie's Special"
Don't forget the Westboro Baptist church
Yes. Westboro Baptist Church remains an ongoing horrific shame in Kansas.
And Pizza Hut!
Chili, green and red. We are the chili Capitol of the world!
Best place to live in Georgia
Largest city land wise in the U.S. and the worst NFL team with a kicka$$ stadium.
Yes...small-town provincialism and closed-mindedness.
Birthplace of Harry Truman. Blue top cafe (formerly). 3-peat state champs in football.
Historic Route 66
BUFFALO Wings, or as we call them, wings ;)
We are notoriously boring.
Where in Kansas?
Entertainment, hookers, plastic surgery, rich ppl, poor ppl, liberals, plastic bag ban, weed shops, riots, crooked cops, donut shops, movies, music, art, museums, sushi, vegan, public transport, bike lanes, jail overcrowding, Hollywood, & freakshows
In the top 3 competitors for the inventor of the Hamburger with New Haven Connecticut, Hamburg, Germany, and Athens, Texas.
I want a jalapeño kolache so bad. I see you're from Texas and talking about meat. All they have here is donuts. Nothing comes close to a jal chz kolache from Texas.
The New Clarissa. A shipwreck
Too many bears.
That's cool. To be known for. Not actually have to deal with
A guy was killed last month by a bear. They think they're squirrels.
I'm in KC we're known for:
BBQ, Jazz, & hopefully by end of next week being home of the current World Series Champions.
I live in Lynchburg, VA
Hell ya!! like 40 things!!!
having the most blacks and Asians in one city
heroin capital of the US. but hey what do expect from a city that's been run by democrats since 1967.
Amy Bishop shooting up the University.
At the moment, mainly Breaking Bad (and I guess people now think we have a lot of meth...we don't...)
When think abq??? I think about skateboards
On the negative side, we were the murder capital of the US around 1980ish.
But we're positively notable as the actual home of the team that was the subject of the book and movie Friday Night Lights, the Permian (HS) Panthers of Odessa TX. The movie
was filmed here (as were scenes from No Country for Old Men), but the TV show moved to Austin and even changed the school's name. Jerks.
And 20 miles east in Midland, George W. Bush grew up and Baby Jessica was dropped down a well by her cousins while they were left unsupervised. This angle of the story was never reported, but it was known by some locals.
Idk you tell me... what do you know about st.louis. I think it is for many reasons but idk what's on everyone else's news.
Only place you can live in despair (DesPeres) in a state of misery (Missouri). Spent the last night of our Disney World honeymoon at the Chase Park Plaza before returning home to Decatur IL. :o)
I heard the police are a force to be reckoned with.
LOL. But the leaked autopsy report tells a different story than the Sharptonites. The cop followed procedure.
Yeah, I got into multiple arguments with party mates defending the officer :/. Glad to see I was on the right side with the county autopsy.
One of the reasons for my switch to become a green.
being really safe?
Well it's notorious for being Oakland I guess.
Laney College! I've got a baseball cap from there with Magic Johnson's jersey # on the back!
Yes. A conspicuous lack of hurricanes.
yes: strip clubs, roses, bridges, homeless people, craft beers, coffee culture.
Arapahoe High School shooting last year, Columbine in a neighboring city and Aurora theater shooting in the other neighboring city.
Don't drink the water. You could catch it.
No. Dumpy little suburb of a trashy little city. AC has casinos and the boardwalk. My town has my old high school where the golden generation of the mafia's children went. Our lighthouse is actually in the city. We're too small (5 miles) to be known.
Texas chainsaw massacre house.
Music City and the Grand Ole Opry are all I can think of. Love going to Opryland during the Christmas time, it's beautiful.
Oh, have they reopened the Opryland amusement park? Used to love it when we lived there in 1980-82 while I got my Master's.
The parks closed and they tore it down to build a huge outlet mall. Best thing to do there now is going to opry mills for Christmas like the original comment said
Sounds good. Haven't been back since they closed my grad school (Scarritt College) and made the campus a headquarters for the feminist movement in the United Methodist Church.
Most bars per capita in the US from what I see, a few of them: www.whats-at-florida-keys.com/Key-West-Bars.html Oddly, it doesn't appear in the official 2013 stats but KW has definitely more than 12 bars per 10,000 as Philly claims.
Crime, corruption, and being the hardest place in the country to play an away game in college football.
South Boston is notorious for being the home of mob boss Whitey Bulger and of rioting and protesting during 1970s forced bussing.
BTK and the Koch brothers.
