Journal Prompt - Your town or city

In the know -- day three!

Whenever I post a prompt about the places you live, your responses are always so fun and filled with pride about the neat things your cities and towns have to offer. I love learning about the places you call home in the ways only you can describe them. And I love thinking about my city in much the same way.

I live in Guelph, Ontario, which is just about an hour west of Toronto. Three things I know about Guelph:

(1) Residents of Guelph are known as Guelphites. Yep, it's true.

(2) The driving here is slow and super polite. In my experience, the majority of Guelphites drive at or slightly below the speed limit and I have personally seen mass hesitation at four-way stops because each of the four head cars is too polite to go first. (I'm assuming that last part, but correctly, I think.)

(3) In the north of the city, there's a lovely little lake called Guelph Lake. It's man-made, motorboat-free, and home to a conservation area and the Hillside music festival.

How about you? What three things do you know about your city or town?
