I know for a lot of people, especially older people, the area they live in currently isn't the same as where they grew up so I thought this would be an interesting thread. But even if you currently live in your hometown you can still post of course :b

Feel free to post pictures, links, or even just a description of the town/city.

I'm from Milton, MA - a pretty small town with not much to do, and about 15 minutes south of Boston.

In a border town between two enemy states. Surprisingly, not a bad childhood at all.

Miami, Florida. The weather's nice and there's some attractive parks. A lot of it though is an ugly urban/suburban sprawl with congested streets. On the whole it's okay.

Wouldn't be my preferred place to raise kids, if I'm ever worrying about that.

Yeah I chickened out with specifics, Bedfordshire England :p in the literal child to adult sense anyway. I think I did more 'growing' emotionally away from there..

All over LA, San Diego, and the Inland Empire in CA.

LA: Hawthorne, Gardena, Redondo beach, Van Nuys, Granada hills, Santa Clarita, Palmdale.

San Diego: Vista, San Marcos, Oceanside, Chula Vista.

Inland Empire: Lake Elsinore, Murrieta, Menifee, Temecula.

I've moved a lot. Sometimes I haven't even lived in place for a year.
