I grew up in a little place calledd Gibraltar. It was fine, but sometimes it was annoying. It never snowed, even though it rained every night. When we moved to a diffrent country, we realised just how many candles we owned, because the power went out so often. It probabl didn't snow, because most of the time, the rain was warm.

I live in this super small town in northern new york. Its so small that me a 11 year old can go on walks around town and know almost everyone. There is a bridge that connects East (town name) to West (town name) And The East side is where all the houses are and the west side is where theres the hospital and grocery stores but the bridge freaks me out because if you fall or even go into the river from the boating launch the under tow is so strong it will take you far.

I live in a small village close to Hamburg, Germany. It's small (8 km² / 3,08 miles²) but suprisingly has a lot to offer. We have a grocery store, doctors complex (3 doctors office), 2 kindergarden, a primary school, a bakery, a real estate agency, a hairdresser, a nice lady who does nails, a studio which does massage stuff, a pharmacy and a kitchenstudio which is for some reason in the same building as a car shop/mechanic. I live here since I was 6 y/o and my best friend lives here as well. It's a 20 minutes carride away from Hambrug which is really nice because even tho we have a lot here it's mostly elderly people and familys living here. Pretty quite and not a lot to have with at your teen years.

Port Washington, WI - It's a small town north of Milwaukee right on Lake Michigan. It's picturesque with a towering church on the top of a hill at the end of the main street of downtown. As a kid, there wasn't much to do other than sit by the lake, but as an adult and I go home to visit my parents, I realize the beauty of such a small town.

My hometown is Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil. I's basically the New York of Brazil, with big, fancy buildings, a million cars in the road, farmer's markets everywhere, and people walking everywhere, too. Public transportation is a big thing and some people don't drive their whole lives. I remember falling asleep to the sound of cars passing by like it was yesterday.

I live in the pacific northwest, in either a big town, or a small city. It could be counted as both. XD It rains a lot there, we're right by the ocean, and the color green is very prominent. It's a nice town, full of nice people, and I really couldn't imagine living anywhere else. Also, there are seagulls. Lots and lots of killer seagulls. XD

It's been voted the worst city in England a few times. Most people avoid it. People laugh or say they feel sorry for me when they find out where I'm from. But, it is a city full of character and culture and people are friendly. I love living in Hull.

My hometown is a tiny town in Oregon. It is somewhat well-known because of the hiking trails and a big, beautiful lake, which we swim in during the summer. I think the best part was the school, it has 200 kids total and is grades K-12. It is great to live in such a small town because you know everyone and can just go anywhere. As kids we roamed the whole neighborhood freely, played with the neighbor kid and just had a great time in general!!

Also, it is a beautiful place and when something happens, everyone knows about it within a day or two and everyone is SO supportive of eachother.

I am currently growing up in a gorgeous small town in north carolina. We are one of the only counties that voted blue, and full of some of the greatest people you will ever meet. We are surrounded by woods, and farms, and lakes. We are super inclusive and always looking out for each other. I wouldn't change anything about it.

Won’t say where it is, but I live in a medium-sized town. It’s a pretty place, full of hiking trails

Me, the creator of this post, am from a little town below Washington DC. It’s very nice and very diverse. The education there is great and pretty much just suburbs except for the northwest side and east side. Many small businesses and shops. It’s wonderful.

Interesting. Despite getting upvotes, it seems the OP decided to delete my answer. I KNOW YOU, YOURSELF AREN'T TRYING TO MINE DATA!!! I wouldn't give you that much credit. BUT THE BOTS AND THE BAD GUYS DON'T CARE! This is a terrific mining field for security answers. But, hey! Go ahead! Tell the bots your hometown. Mention your high school mascot and your first pet's name as well. Have a good day!

I grew up in a small village on the coast of Maine. Many people earned their living as lobstermen. My high school graduation class was about 110 people big, so everyone pretty much knew everyone else. My mother still lives there, and knows lots of the folks I grew up with.
