I live in Montreal Canada and I love the arts and old european feel. But i hate the pot holes and horrible roads. I took this picture today of some random street art

 Love the city because everything is in walking distance, stores, shops, general merchandise, gyms, and lots of parks around.  I could take the bus to the mall as it stops at my front door.  Or I could take the trolley clear across the town and back.  What I hate - is the emergency personnel coming from no where.

I don't live in the city. I live in the suburbs, but I love everything here and can't find one thing I don't like thankfully.

 We are not in the city, but out in the country.

I love it for the nature, (we are in horse country) the beautiful horse farms.

A change is they need to update to times. There was a meeting a couple weeks ago but all the dirt roads in our area and thruout the Western part of the County htat need to be updated, paved or better mainted with gravel more often and ditches dug out more often too.

Most of the people who live on the dirt roads have horses and do not want the change cause they need the dirt roads for riding and fox hunting. Old time traditions.

 Than there are some people on the dirt roads that do not have horses or SUV's and the dirt roads, and pot holes are messing up the cars they have.

And the same people who have the farms have paved area for their horses to walk on but need the dirt roads for their horses.

I love the fact that the people are constantly changing. Military city, so I've met some incredible people from all over the globe.

I hate the fact that people are constantly leaving. You make friends, establish relationships with people and then they're gone.

I don't really consider Xenia to be a city.  More of a town I guess.  I love the sense of community.  The town puts on a little festival the first Friday of the month May-September and most things there are free.  You have to pay to eat and bounce in the bounce house.  There's face painting, balloon animals, magicians, the local ballet studio dancers make little tiaras for the girls that stop by their little booth/table.  It's a lot of fun.  At Christmas they have a little park with an old fashioned house and a garden and they set up the house with Santa and Mrs. Claus.  You can take the picture for free or pay the photographer to do it.  They give you carriage rides through the gardens which are all lit up.  It's just nice that all the kids here get to enjoy these things.  I also love the old buildings.

This is part of our downtown.

This is the courthouse.  My dd thinks it's a castle.

The one thing I would change is the restaurant selection.  We have the basics covered but only a couple that are locally owned and not franchised.  I'm not that into chain restaurants.
