"Laid back artistic street and community"

McLendon Avenue Northeast is part a tight knit community within a larger city. It's located in Atlanta's Little Five Points area that was named after five streets intersecting. McLendon has eclectic restaurants, vintage shops, boutiques, bookstores and is known for being a creative area of Atlanta. This laid back artistic community is in a very desirable location even though most of the homes are a bit older and need to be refurbished. The music stores, tattoo shops and nightlife cater to a younger crowd.

"Great place to book a hotel in Atlanta or go out for drinks"

Running parallel to Atlanta's infamous Peachtree Street, Peachtree Center Avenue is right in the middle of midtown Atlanta. You can find restaurants like the Hard Rock Cafe and elegant hotel restaurants and bars with outdoor patio seating. The Ritz Carlton's Lumen is a pretty popular lounge area on this street. It's a great street to find a nice upscale eatery or stay while visiting Atlanta. Peachtree Center Avenue also leads into Peachtree St NE near Emory Univeristy Hospital.

"Great entertainment, but not so great bums!"

This street is located near the funky and chic Little Five Points area of Atlanta. The streets has a few coffee shops and fast food restaurants frequented by local students and hipsters. The neighborhood is pretty safe and clean during the day, but it gets a little ghetto at night. There is a new homeless community that likes to hang around in this area that visitors should be aware of.

"Industrial part of town with not much to do"

Fayetteville is on the outskirts of Atlanta’s city limits. It looks very rural and industrial from all of the auto shops along the main road. The homes are very inexpensive and most of them are older and need work. There isn’t much to do in the area, but there are a few liquor stores to shop at and the Hartsfield-Jackson airport is nearby.

"Midtown street with stunning Victorian homes!"

8th St is perfect example of Atlanta's distinct residential architecture. The homes are gorgeous and the neighborhood is very clean. Victorian and Craftsman houses line 8th St and they're just a short walk away from restaurants and stores on Peachtree St. The Midtown Marta train stop is just a block over and the street ends at Georgia Tech. This is a great street for families since the Piedmont Park is around the corner.

"Never a dull moment on Marietta Street"

Marietta Street runs north to south through the city. The north end is mostly a highway that runs alongside Georgia Tech. This south side is sprinkled with boutiques, hotels and restaurants like Spoon and Thrive. It’s always buzzing with excitement and never empty no matter how late or early it is. The street is traffic heavy and parking is very limited.

"The best of both worlds!"

Western Ave NW has the best of both worlds. The street is fairly quiet and tucked away to the west of the Northside Drive highway. The homes and apartments on this street are fairly new and the street is clean. The street looks like a typical Georgia suburb, but it's just minutes away from Georgia Tech, the aquarium and downtown Atlanta. The only negative is living so close to the highway.

"Small spanish style homes"

Bancroft St is a residential street that runs north to south through San Diego's North Park and South Park communities. The homes are smaller by comparison to the larger colonial homes in the area. St. Augustine High School is at the south end of Bancroft St and is a pretty quiet, residential area. The northern tip of Bancroft intersects with University Ave and is a little busier with coffee shops, restaurants and is near the Uptown District shopping center.

"Charming, historic street with Spanish Colonial homes"

I've stayed with a friend on Kalmia St and absolutely adored it. The hilly street has great views and the Spanish Colonial homes are charming. The close knit community holds the Old House Fair every June and there is tons of food, live music, family arts and street vendors. This historic part of town has quaint shops, restaurants and you see a lot of residents riding bikes around town.

"Clean suburban street just a few minutes away from exciting downtown!"

Maple St looks just like what you would expect a Southern California street to look like. It is lined with tall, swaying palm trees, apartment complexes and green parks. It is a pretty quiet street for the most part, but there is some traffic on the corner of Maple and 6th Ave in the morning because people are trying to get to the San Diego Zoo. The east side of Maple street has a mixture of Victorian, Colonial and older Spanish style homes.

"Thriving artist community, great for families!"

Ivy Street is runs through San Diego's Little Italy and Park West neighborhoods and is right off the 5 freeway. The street is close to authentic Italian restaurants, antique shops and potted plants and flowers decorate the street corners. Ivy Street is a very short drive away to the airport, San Diego Bay and the Maritime Museum. All of downtown San Diego's most popular attractions are a few minutes away from Ivy Street. The people are pretty friendly and the community events, local schools and churches make this an ideal street for families.

"Part of San Diego's Little Italy neighborhood"

I love visiting San Diego's Little Italy every time I am in town. There are so many stores and restaurants to try out. You can find antiques, visit art galleries, explore gift shops and check out the seasonal street festivals. Kids Trick or Treat in LIttle Italy each year and Mission Federal ArtWalk is held every year in April. I highly recommend checking out West Cedar Street if you're in town. It's a great place to live too. There are a few public parking lots in the area and renovated apartment complexes on West Cedar.

"Modern, clean and close to the beach!"

West A St is just south of San Diego's LIttle Italy. This street is lined with high rises and leads to the 163 Freeway and San Diego City College as it becomes A St. It ends right at the McClintock Plaza Shopping Center and doesn't go all the way through to the beach if you're heading west. It would be an ideal place to live because it's close to major shopping areas, restaurants, hotels and the Broadway Pier.

"Cool downtown street that is close to museums and the pier!"

West Ash Street runs parallel to Beech St and A St and ends at Harbor Drive. It is close to every Downtown convenience imaginable. It also runs through the McClintock Shopping Center and is in close proximity to some of the nicest downtown hotels. Union Station, the Maritime Museum and the Aircraft Carrier Museum are just a few attractions. The best part of West Ash Street is that it is close to the Broadway Pier. There is always something to do in this hip part of town.

Station Village Way has this exciting energy about it. People spend their days shopping and strolling down this palm tree lined street. It is like a tiny oasis in San Diego. There are apartment complexes, restaurants like Wahoo's Fish Tacos and the Promenade Rio Vista all on this street. Station Village Way is home to the Rio Vista Station and it has a beautiful water fountain right in the center of everything.

This major road is lined with apartment complexes, a Starbucks, hotels and a few chain restaurants. It leads into a shopping center past the 56 Freeway.

"Noisy street near the Naval Air Station"

This Tierrasanta neighborhood street is very clean and has easy access to shopping. The Vons supermarket is right down the street and the I-15 is a five minute drive away. The only problem with this street is that it's located right near the naval air station. It can be very loud and noisy at times. One perk that makes up for it is the beautiful hiking trails in the Mission Trails regional park. It's a great way to get some scenic views of the San Diego area.

The area is very much country club living, clean and full of lush greenery.

It's very close to the Teirra Santa Shopping Center and Mission Valley.

"Very friendly neighbors and an awesome deli on the corner!"

The best thing about Hillcrest ave is that it is really close to all of the shops on Amboy Rd. Amboy is always busy, full of people and sometimes has bad traffic, but Hillcrest is so mellow and only gets busy when the elementary students go to school in the morning. I love Christina's Deli on the corner of Seely Ln and Hillcrest. It's such a random spot for a deli, but really convenient. I would always stop to buy a soda on my way to the the shops on Amboy. Hillcrest Ave has it all because it's close to the hustle and bustle, but yet it's almost hidden and peaceful.

"Love the neighborhood, but the parkway can be a little scary at night."

The homes on Grantwood Ave are beautiful. They are simply gorgeous. I would almost say that this is the best street to live on in the South Shore except for one thing that makes this street a little unappealing. The intersection of Grantwood Ave and Drumgoole Rd just makes it less appealing. It's very scary to walk here at night and since it's right near the parkway, there is always litter here.

Harold St is a pretty suburban street in the Willowbrook neighborhood of Staten Island. The homes on this street are quite large and the families who live here are pretty wealthy.

This street is really close to the Verrazano Narrows Bridge so that's a plus.

Benzinger Ave is pretty busy in the morning because of PS 31 near by on Layton Ave. It's pretty quiet during the day, but there is a lot of traffic in the area after school gets out.

"Busy and beautiful convention center street."

The Anaheim Convention Center has stunning architecture. This street is always full of people who are attending some sort of convention. The street is pretty clean, but Anaheim's homeless frequent this street because they like to score a freebie from convention promoters who pass out free T-shirts, drinks or food. I wouldn't walk down this street at night though since it's less busy and seems desolate.

"A cool street in Disneyland! Shopping, music and more!"

This street is the major road to get to shopping at Downtown Disney and to the Disneyland parking lots. This street is beautifully landscaped and there is so much to do without even having to visit the park. The House of Blues is located here and you can see some major bands perform on this street. You can grab a bite to eat or even grab a drink while here. There is fun for the whole family, but parking can be expensive. I suggest parking in the lots near the Anaheim Convention Center and just walking down Katella to enjoy shopping at Downtown Disney for less. You can also take the parking lot trams for free!

"Gorgeous homes in this Anaheim neighborhood"

W Ricky Ave has beautiful homes and seems like the perfect place to live. The street is very clean, quiet and the large homes start at over $500,000. This street is right near the Lake School Park and the schools in the neighborhood are pretty good. Ricky Ave is the definition of suburbia and isn't so cool for young singles, but this street is perfect for families. Disneyland and the Anaheim Convention center are right around the corner so there can be a lot of traffic from the freeways to this area. Don't even try to park on this street to beat the parking lot fees since it is permit parking only and you will be towed. I've seen it happen many times.

"A busy street with many Anaheim attractions"

La Palma is one of the major streets on the north side of Anaheim. I always get on this street off of the 57 or the 5 freeway when I go to Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park. I've stopped at a few restaurants along the way and the area is pretty clean. It looks like a typical SoCal street that you would see on TV. It is lined with the occasional palm tree and all of the buildings have spanish style architecture. La Palma Park and the Anaheim Memorial Medical Center are both on this street as well.

"A very beautiful street that is home to Tavern On the Green."

Most people think the upper west side is quite boring, but there is a lot to do on this street. This street is in the middle of Amsterdam Ave and central park west. You can walk to Central Park in less than ten minutes and Tavern On the Green is right down the block. There are many luxurious apartment buildings on this street. They seem to be nicer the closer they are to Central Park. Nick and Toni's Cafe is on W 67th and they have the best thin crust chicken pizza! This street is very safe and a great place to live.

"Cool street on the lower east side!"

The bars and clubs on the lower east side are the best places to party in New York City. There are a few haunts on Essex that are amazing. I highly recommend Mason Dixon at 133 Essex St. They have a mechanical bull! I would always stop on by the Essex Restaurant for brunch the morning after a night of partying to get something to eat. This street also bisects Canal St in Chinatown. There are so many places to see on this street, but my favorite part of Essex is between Delancey St and Rivington St.

"A street in Stuyvesant Town!"

20th St Loop is part of Stuyvesant Town. The loop streets all share a park and the apartments in this complex are pretty spacious. I knew a few people who lived there and it a pretty cool place to live, but many residents complained about the rat issue that wasn't under control on this street. They are always doing construction on this street so it's really hard for the residents to park in their garages. This complex is very close to some cool bars and great shopping areas.

Although some parts of Harlem are improving and the streets are getting cleaner, this isn't one of them. There are some good people who live on this street and try to make it day by day, but there are too many gangs and drug dealers on this street. You will probably feel unsafe walking down this street.

This street in east Harlem has been going through a lot of renovations over the years. Developers have been going into Spanish Harlem and trying to revitalize it so the apartments in this areas can be sold to young hipsters. I love this street because of the restaurants and the culture in the area. It is very hard to find parking on this street though. This street is fairly clean, but sometimes feel a little unsafe.

This street is ideal for families with kids and older people. The apartments on W 94th offer a quick walk to the Hudson River on the left and Central Park to the right. This street is very clean and peaceful and close to the 1,2, and 3 trains. There are some good diners in the area to catch some breakfast, but there isn't too much nightlife happening here since it's mostly residential.

Queens Blvd is a major road that will take you from the Queensboro Bridge and to La Guardia Airport. It goes half way across Queens to Jamaica. This street is easy to use as a guideline if you get lost. I usually spend most of my time on this street at the Queens Center mall. This street can get a little ghetto, but it depends on what neighborhood you're in.

"Awesome Greek culture and so close to the city."

Ditmars Blvd is just a twenty minute train ride away from all the cool parts of Manhattan. I like this block because of the good Greek food you can get in Astoria. West Queens is pretty much home to younger people who can't really afford to live in manhattan and immigrants. This street reflects that with the shops in the area. The apartments on this street are starting to get a little more expensive now that Astoria isn't as dangerous as it once was.

Hunters Point has a bad reputation for being very scary and pretty ghetto. This street is now improving and becoming trendy. It is only one train stop away from Manhattan and new blood is flocking to this street. New apartment renovations are making this street a premier block because of the river views. There are some really good restaurants on this street, but some areas can be a little industrial and unsafe to walk alone at night.

Jamaica is a very rough neighborhood to visit. I do not suggest visiting this area if you are not a person of color. People will stare you down and just think you’re there to buy drugs.

"Busy major street that"

This major road is always full of people waiting at the bus stops. This bus route is one of the most crowded routes in New York. I have always been smashed on this bus because so many people put their luggage everywhere on the bus while trying to get to La Guardia Airport. This street reminds me of parts of the Bronx because it’s a little dirty and the people are a little poor. The area is pretty safe though. You can catch the 7 train on this street or go shopping at the Rego Park Shopping Center.

Snediker Ave is really close to East NY Brooklyn and it just feels all sorts of unsafe. This street is quite long and the southern parts of it are okay. There are some low income housing projects in this area and I've seen a few shady people just hanging around. There is a homeless shelter on this street and some people are trying to rebuild their lives, but others just make it seem ghetto and scary.

This street is a really nice place to live. I knew a couple who lived right across the street from the McGolrick Park. There is an elementary school on this street so it gets pretty busy in the mornings and afternoons. The park is nice in the summertime and there are some nice places to eat around here. It can be a little expensive to live here, but the location is amazing. It's only three subway stops to get to Manhattan.

"A major street that runs near Underground Atlanta"

Put on your shopping shoes and hit up Underground Atlanta for all day shopping. This street is pleasant in the downtown area and near Georgia State University, but gets a bit desolate and dingy when you head west. It also goes through a few other colleges in the area like Morris Brown College. This street runs parallel to the 402 freeway and most of the MARTA. You'll pass by the Westview Cemetery once you head west of downtown Atlanta. It's quite dreary and buildings get smaller and more run down in that area. The only cool place in that area is the Cascade Family Skating park. It's just fun to watch everyone get all into the music.

You must stop by Einsteins' to have dinner outside under their large and relaxing trees. They even have dessert served in beakers over dry ice! It feels like you're eating at a friend's house. The street is always busy since it is a major artery for midtown. The only thing that isn't so great is all of the construction going on since they're building new apartment complexes.

Lambert Dr NE is very hidden and far away from most of the fun areas of Atlanta, but it is home to some of the most creative people in town. The Creative Circus school is right on this street and some of the art work that those students create is just stunning. Their facility looks quite drab and boring on the outside, but looks very modern on the inside. This is a huge contrast compared to Lambert Dr. The street has a few small trees along the road and while driving down this dead end you feel like you're in the backwoods of the south.

Local radio station promoters also fill the streets and give out prizes to people in line. It's just chaos, but a lot of fun.

"Very clean and quiet street in Atlanta"

I stayed at the Best Western Inn on this street and loved the location. This street is very clean and is so close to everything. This street is right in the middle of downtown Atlanta and the MARTA stops in this area. The best part about this street is that you are located within a five minute walk to really great diners and clubs. The aquarium is just around the corner and parks are also within walking distance.

"Very hip and trendy shopping area in Atlanta."

This street is part of Atlanta's Little Five Points shopping area. It's a funky and very cool street to visit. The cafes on this street are owned by really friendly people. You can spend an entire afternoon shopping on this one street. You can also take the MARTA to Little Five Points so you don't have to spend time circling the block to find parking. This is definitely one of Atlanta's highlights.

"Many discount stores, palm trees and small clubs."

This street is home to some of the best Mexican restaurants that L.A. has to offer. The small discount stores that line this street look a little sad because some buildings are quite shabby. The street runs near Union Station and there is much traffic right before the Dodger Stadium on game days. Many frequent this street to get to the clubs in Echo Park once it turns into Sunset Blvd. This street also takes you into parts of Chinatown and some of the best karaoke bars in town.

"Very busy main street and home to the famous Pinks Hot Dogs."

I frequent this street on my daily commute to Hollywood and always see a long line of people who come from all over the city who wait for over half an hour for a hot dog at Pinks Hot Dog on La Brea. The other famous landmark on this street is the La Brea tar pits on La Brea and Wilshire Blvd. The street smells like tar, but is a major tourist attraction and a frequent elementary school field trip location. This street is always busy and not all that clean, but it's decent compared to other parts of town.

"Downtown shopping area that never sleeps."

The architecture in this area reminds me of New York City. The lofts on 5th street are gorgeous and this part of downtown L.A. is continuously improving. The homeless situation is still prevalent and many of them take naps in front of the Los Angeles Public Library or in Pershing Square. Pershing Square is a nice place for families to visit during the holidays since the make it an ice skating rink. This street is very busy and easily accessible on the Metro Red Line.

"This street is lined with homeless people and drug addicts."

I do not recommend this street to anyone. This street is lined with homeless people and a whole homeless community. People were just drug dealing out in the open while I was driving by. It is almost like a whole homeless community lives here. There are a lot of clinics and shelters in this area and they are so full to capacity that the people spill out onto the streets. These are the many forgotten people of Los Angeles and this is a really bad area. It is very dirty and looks tragic.

"Great food and entertainment!"

If you want to see a bargain movie then check out Regency theatre on Fairfax and Melrose. You can watch some great indie and midnight movies for only $4 before 6 p.m. The theatre is right across the street from CBS. They film The Price is Right there and you'll always see a line of contestants waiting to get in. A little further down the street is Farmer's Market and The Grove. There is so much to do on Fairfax and you'll see the occasional tourist bus parked at Farmer's Market.

The Silver Lake Reservoir is right on this street and is an amazing place to take a jog. It's a really placid place in Los Angeles and the surrounding homes are quite beautiful. Silver Lake is a very eclectic area and this street winds around a cool dog park and takes you right to the heart of the clubs on Silver Lake Blvd and W Sunset Blvd. The Silver Lake Lounge has an interesting crowd and pretty cheap beers.

"A central street that was part of Route 66."

Figueroa St is very busy during the day and is full of film crews in the downtown L.A. area. There is always some filming happening on this street. I've stayed at the Marriott Hotel on Figueroa and 3rd St. There are just high rises and nothing to really do in that area since it's in the Financial District, but there are some great places to shop near Figueroa and 7th St. This street runs north and south through Los Angeles and goes all the way to Pasadena.

I've frequented this street to pick up some Japanese pastries in the Little Tokyo part of town. The street is nice to visit near 1st St, but it gets really ghetto and dangerous near 4th St. I do not recommend walking on this street by yourself. It's quite scary just driving through here in a car. I have seen many homeless and drug addicts near San Pedro and 6th St.

I've seen Hilary Duff walking on this street a few times. There is usually a lot of traffic in this area because of all of the shopping areas.

S Flower St is part of downtown L.A. and is quite busy during the week. It is usually deserted after 7 p.m. once everyone gets out of work. The street is pretty dead on the weekend since there are only businesses in this area. The shopping centers in this area are great, but sometimes the streets smell like urine because a few homeless hang out near the subway station exits on 7th and S Flower.

McClellan has it's good and bad areas. Some of the apartment buildings are really nice and well kept while others are a bit run down and tagged on. The ones closer to the Grand Concourse are a little ghetto. The apartments near the park are a bit nicer and updated. The McClellan park is very peaceful in the morning and mothers take their small children. This park isn't that amazing. It' right next to the train tracks and isn't necessarily too peaceful at times, but it's a quiet neighborhood to consider.

There is a sports bar on E 158th and River Ave that is a great place to get some beers after the game. The best part of River Ave is riding the 4 train and passing by the Yankee Stadium on my way to work.

Fordham Rd is a sight to behold. It is a little run down, but always very busy. There are men playing cards and gambling on top of boxes just like the movie.

I've heard many people say it's dangerous in that area, but I never had a problem shopping there and I couldn't deny a bargain. The new library is right around the corner and is worth the visit.

Kingsbridge is a very lively place. There are many bargain discount stores, dress shops and places to grab something to eat for under $5. You can get pizza for a buck a slice and the chinese food on this block is the best in town. The chicken shack is open really late and is a favorite spot for the early 20s crowd after they come out of a night of clubbing and drinking. Associated Market is on this block. This street is right between the 4 and the D trains so it's a busy place because people are constantly getting off and on the subway.

There's not much to do there and it's mostly residential. The Amtrak station is just a few blocks away from the school too.

"Check out Spirit Square"

The one tourist attraction I visited while in Charlotte was the Spirit Square. It is on the intersection of College St and 7th St right near the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. I visited a few times to check out a few art galleries and attended the symphony on my last night in Charlotte. It was a great experience and showed me another side to Charlotte. I spent most of my time shopping or hitting up bars so this was a great change of pace.

"Right in the middle of town"

E Trade St is home to a lot of good eats and a lot of people in their 20s and 30s hang out around here. It's pretty packed on the weekends and people are always bar hopping in this area. Check out Howl at the Moon while here. I stayed with my friends while in Charlotte and they said it was their favorite local spot. It's a really cool piano bar and all the college kids in town are frequent visitors.

"Spent the day walking around and drinking at Dixie's Tavern"

I spent a whole day on 7th street just walking around and stopped by Dixie's Tavern to get a drink. I had ask a few locals for a great bar and they said Dixie's had good deals. They were right! Dixie's is right near the train tracks so I thought it was going to be a little ghetto, but I had a great time. I went on a Friday night and the place was packed. E 7th is also right near a bunch of bars on N Tryon and they are all within walking distance of each other.

"Busy City Street in Charlotte"

I spent a lot of time on W 5th St while visiting in Charlotte. I would always exit onto it when I got off the 77 freeway and would drive it all the way down to N Poplar to get to the library. I would always pass a little cemetery there and parked to take a visit. W 5th also goes near the Johnson Smith University and I had to drive down it to take a few friends to class.

"Great place of soul food in uptown Charlotte"

I had some soul food on N Graham street with a few friends. We ate at Simmons Soul Food and just drove around the area after we ate. The road is very quiet and pretty the closer it is to town, but it winds up and gets sort of creepy since it's right around the corner from a huge cemetery.

"Amazing architecture in a busy area."

I love the buildings on this road. There are beautiful brick buildings you would only find on the east coast. I was strolling down N Poplar when I got lost. I stopped by a park on this street and just took a few pictures. I later found out that I was at Fourth Ward Park and I highly recommend stopping by here to just relax after shopping in the area. There is also a Bank of America on this road.

"Fun for the whole day!"

Anyone who visits Charlotte needs to stop by N Tryon St. It's such a beautiful street and has really great restaurant's to take a date. I always went to the Charlotte public library on this street and would wander around after reading a good book. You can just park in one of the public lots and just walk around for some great food and scenic sight seeing.

"Mall Madness Shopping Area"

Fairview Rd is a fairly busy street for Charlotte. Just beware of the crazy mall traffic near the South Park Mall. It can get really busy, but I love the stores in this mall. You can shop at Tiffany's and Nordstrom here! There are some really good places to eat around here too.

"Main road that will take you everywhere."

Sharon Rd is one of Charlotte's major roads that connects you to where you need to go. I spent a lot of time driving on this road to get to the South Park Mall near my friend's house. It also connected me to the Myer's Country club. I guess it's almost like a highway. Great for shopping and getting around town.

"Quiet street with lovely homes."

I visited a friend and stayed at her house on this street. The houses are very pretty and the street is just full of large trees. This is a very quiet street and all of the yards are neatly manicured. There are no sidewalks down this road and it is an upper middle class suburban area.

"Pretty hotels close to the Amtrak Station"

There isn't that much exciting action going on at the part of H St I visited. I stayed at the Best Western right next to the Amtrak station. I had an early train and didn't want to miss it. The station is clean and isn't scary so that's a plus. There are some really good places to eat closer to the 5 freeway.

"Visit the zoo and take a break from the city."

The Sacramento Zoo is right on W Land Park Drive. It only costs $9 to get in and there is so much to do there. They neighborhoods in this area are very quiet and beautiful. I recommend going to the zoo to get away from the whole downtown vibe if you feel like you need a change of pace. Very lush, green old trees are everywhere. It's very serene.

"Hip neighborhood, good food & art"

19th St is nestled in a really cool neighborhood that is in walking distance of the Freemont park, the Center For Contemporary Art and cute cafes are lined up all around this area. I saw a lot of 20 somethings around here. It's right near the amtrak train tracks so it can get a little annoying if you live around here.

"Take the Trolly on K Street!"

Riding on the trolly on K street was really fun! I got on after I watched an IMAX movie and rode it through the mall. Check out the shopping area around here and unwind with a fun ride. The convention center is right around the corner and so is the California State Capitol. You'll run into a ton of tourists in this area, but it's still a fun experience.

"Friendly neighborhood with beautiful scenery"

I love the palm trees that line Capitol Ave. The houses on this street are just gorgeous and I can't wait to one day afford one! I stayed with a friend on this street and we ate dinner at Paesanos almost every night that I was there. They have fabulous pizza. State Capitol Park is also right down the street.

"Busy area, beautiful architecture that reminds me of the east coast."

I spent a lot of time on I St because I went to the library everyday for a few weeks. I just fell in love with the way the street was lit with pretty lamp posts and lush trees just lined the street. It reminded me of the east coast because there are so many cabs in this area and the architecture of these buildings is quite different than southern California. There are so many embellished details and it's a really pretty area. I highly recommend taking a walk around here.

"Theatre buffs hang around here."

Really cool architecture on P St. Check out the Thistle Dew Dessert Theatre and Art Gallery while there. It looks like an old victorian house and you can check out plays there. There are very cute cafes in this area. and a lot of my artsy friends like to hang out around this midtown street.

"Main busy street with so much to do."

Check out J street for shopping, great places to eat and that funky downtown vibe. It's always busy and full of people. There's a farmers market at the park on J st and 10th from 11 to 2 every Wednesday. A lot of people come out to buy fresh produce and there is a great community vibe. I stayed at the Sheraton on this street and never ran out of things to see or do.

"Cute street, friendly neighbors and close to everything!"

I stayed with my friend in her apartment on this street for almost a month. She lived right next to Crocker Park and we would always walk down to the corner of 3rd and Q St to get some coffee at Chocolate Fish Coffee. I loved walking around this area because there are so many trees! I love the scenery and everything is so close by. You can get to the mall in less than ten minutes and the water is a few blocks away.

"Scenic waterfront street. Great for romantic evenings!"

I took a stroll down front street after visiting the Towe auto museum. It was a nice romantic evening and walking by the water is always relaxing. There are tons of local shops here in Old Sacramento. I grabbed some yogurt and just checked out the really old buildings. It feels so small town walking around here. It would be a really cute place to take a date.

"A little ghetto, but great people!"

The Grand Concourse is pretty dreary, but I love how it runs all through the Bronx and it helps me find where I need to go. Check out the Grand Concourse and Fordham Rd for the best pizza ever! Slices are only $1 and soda is only $.75 a can. You can get a filling meal for less than 2 bucks. I love the Bronx and it isn't as bad as everyone says it is.

"Let's go shopping!!!"

Shopping in Soho is an experience. Some stores are ridiculously overpriced, but others have really good deals. I bought a cute purse and hat here for only $20. Check out the thai food around here. It’s delicious! I recommend Peep at 177 Prince St. The décor is so cool and the people are really friendly.

"Great for people watching"

Check out the Central Library on 42nd St. This is my favorite library in the whole wide world. I like to make a whole day of it when I go to this library. I come here to relax and write. If I need a breather I can always go outside and hang out in Bryant Park. I like how easily accessible it is from the subway and walking distance to Times Square. There are some really good eats here too!

"Quirky fun bars and people!"

Williamsburg is known for being home to hipsters. I enjoy coming here to check out cool indie bands. Check out Art Land because the wait-staff is friendly and not pretentious. I think it's such a quirky neighborhood. You can see old Cuban men sitting on their stoops and hipster kids walking around. It's such a funny sight to see.
