Hello everyone. I live in Bossier City, Louisiana and have been here all my life. We are in North Louisiana, but can be in Cajun country enjoying another style of life in just a few hours. We just returned today from the Jambalaya Festival in south Louisiana.
Between our sister city, Shreveport, which is just across the Red River, we have become quite the tourist mecca in the last few years. We now have 5 casinos that bring tourist from all our neighboring states. We are the home to the Rose Center, Sci-port Discovery Center(at which I work), and Barksdale Air Force Base, one of the largest SAC bases in the United States.
We are home to festivals celebrating everything from art to mudbugs. We can watch sports from our own baseball team, football team or hockey team. Two nationally known golfers call North La.home. Why, we even have a lighthouse!!!
I would like to extend our southern hospitality to everyone. We have something for everyone here and would love to entertain all of "ya'll".
We live in Oak Creek, Wisc, a suburb of Milwaukee. We are in senior citizen housing and it is very nice.
Not to far away is Lake Michigan. Probably a 15 mintue ride.
There is alot of places to fish, but isn't safe to eatthem. Much less the beaches may not be open this summer...
Wow, it's great to read about all the different communities we live in. I'm new to the boards so have been really checking out all the different threads! This one was really interesting
I live in a small rural community, Beachburg, Ontario, Canada. Right now the weather is great about 27 degrees. Soon it will be above 30 and the humidity makes it hard to be outside for long. We are right along the Ottawa River. We are well known for great white water rafting.
Winter is cold with temps dipping to -30 and then a wind chill ontop of that.
I really like the community though. When we moved here the neighbors showed up on our doorstep with casseroles and home baked goodies!! I would never get that in a city!
My hubby is with the military so I'm just hoping we stay for awhile longer as it is agreat place to raise our 3 kids.
OK, we used to live in Fort Lauderdale, FL in what was the suberbs-now I believe the berbs have moved futher out. We had all the civilized amenities-malls, corner stores, pizza delivery......
Now, we live in rural SE NC. We're in the country now you all!
No malls close by, no corner stores close by and definitely NO pizza delivery.... I live 17 miles from work and 17 miles from town-two different directions. Wilmington, NC is town-the big city would be Myrtle Beach, SC about 50 miles away or Jacksonville, NC about 100 miles the other direction.
I like it here, close to my parents-just down the street. If we could afford one we'd have a horse that my granddaughter and I would have to share...LOL
It looks like we might be getting some closer shopping and other amenities-they're building up Brunswick County something fierce--probably still won't have pizza delivery though.....LOL

I live in South Central Missouri, in the rural midwest.
Farm of all shapes and sizes.
I live 5 miles outside the city limits of a town with population of about 15,000. Lots of farmers markets, hillbillys, and wonderful friendly people.
Within about an hour of me there are... 3 different rivers, 4 large tourest lakes, and Bennett Springs State Park [where we are having "Hillbilly Days" this weekend, This is a
festival and it includes skillet throwing contests, cow chips fling, turtle races, ladies nail driving contest, just to name a few... [see I told you we had lots of hillbillys]
Also close by is Branson Mo.and Silver Dollar City where there are........you guessed it more HILLBILLYS!
Lots of golf courses, natural springs, limestone, and caves. If you saw the movie "Deep Impact" , it is true that they could hid a million people in the caves of Missouri.
If you need help, ask God
If you don't need help, Thank God
I think your "hillbilly days" sound like alot of fun! We have a local agricultural fair every summer and i am going to suggest some of those ideas to the fair board. If you have any others please pass them on.
I wish I could get to Missouri for the Hillbilly Days. I has been 7 years since our last trip to Branson. We stayed in cabins out by the lake. I love it there. You get shows, shopping and beautiful scenery all in one trip! And, we fit in with all the hillbillies...except they like to call us rednecks in Louisiana!
