Lists::: Day 16 - Places To See In My Town

Good Morning Friends!

I live in a relatively small and boring town. It's got it's pros, but mostly, I can't wait to get out of here. It used to be all orange groves, there are still quite a few around, but not enough to make the whole town smell like oranges or anything - unfortunately. The places you have to see here aren't much different than places you could find anywhere else. So don't get your hopes up K? Two things I really do like about this area: 1 - there are TONS of really cool old houses. TONS. And I love them.  2 - The Bowl. Every Tuesday night during the summer they put on a free concert in the park/bowl. They are usually symphonies and ballets and operas. It's so much fun and you can bring wine!

Alright, I think that's all the highlights! What do you think? Pretty ok? Super boring?

  4. all those places look awesome! We don't have anything so pretty (or old) here in squarebanks. Well, a house or building might be old here..which generally means it's very small and ugly (haha)
