Syracuse, Utah

Known as the gateway to Antelope Island (on the Great Salt Lake)
24,331 total population
There are 15 Mormon churches here...only 1 Christian church...and as far as I can tell, no other churches at all.
The streets are numbered out from the corner of State St. and Temple St which is where the Mormon temple is located. A typical address would look like 350 west 600 south
Syracuse, UT.
We are about 25 miles from Salt Lake City and its cities the whole way. Very metropolitan area.

3. The closest Target is 40 min away. Closest grocery store is 15 min away.
4. It only has 6 businesses in town. (& of course 2 are bars) :)
5. There is no mail service in town. You must go to the post office to pick it up. (we live rural so they bring us ours)

Bremerton, WA

1- A band called MXPX wrote a song about this town. It's called "Move to Bremerton"

2-big military community here! There are 2 bases.

3- downtown has a ferry that takes you directly to Seattle.

4- West Bremerton & East Bremerton are separated by a large bridge.

5- We are far enough away from active volcanoes like Mt. St. Helens but still close enough to see it, if it were to erupt.

The first Hilton Hotel was built here.

We have 2 Indian reservations here as well as an army post.

We had live alligators as our plaza center until the 60's.

Fort Bliss is larger than Rhode Island and sits in the middle of our city.

Pancho Villa and Billy the Kid have passed through our city.
