Let's just not leave it at (often large, sophisticated and liberal) cities.

None that I can think of, to be honest. If it's a small, rural hick town then chances are there's not much to do there. I'd probably die of boredom.

Hey, I knew a bold bad desperado from Cripple Creek out in Colorado! He walked around just like a big tornado, and everywhere he went he gave his war WHOOP.

No, thank you. I grew up in a small, rural, hick town and don't care if I never see it again.

I already live in one. Great Falls, South Carolina
Look it up on google if you want to see a hick town :P
The biggest event we've had recently was a huge mill fire (last summer) . It was a few houses away from where I live. It was actually pretty cool, but things are pretty boring here. We only have one stop light in the whole town!

And the mill fire turned out to be arson :roll:

Nor do I have any intention of taking part in such unsavory activities, thank you very much. My tastes are too refined for that. I prefer activities that have more artistic merit. I may technically be a Southerner myself, but I have the heart of a Yankee. :wink:

None, thanks. I grew up in a rural hick town with one stoplight. I escaped it at the first opportunity, and never went back. It is most famous for the tire fire at the local dump. They printed up T-shirts and everything.

I was there when I was 8. Don't remember much of it, I have alot of family in that area.

Leavenworth, WA is a really nice town. It's basically in the middle of nowhere off highway 2 in the mountains. Really nice tourist, hiking town, lots to do, beautiful city too.
