What is Your Hometown Best Known For?
This weekend is a holiday weekend, which means I'll be headed back to my hometown of St. Clair Shores, Michigan! When people here in Iowa ask me where I'm from, I typically say, "Detroit," because most people actually know where that is. St. Clair Shores is within Metro Detroit, so I'm not technically lying...
St. Clair Shores has a population of just under 60,000 people and is located all the way over on the east side of the state. If there's anything that my hometown is known for, I would say it's the lovely (and very dirty) Lake St. Clair. It may not be much, but it's ours! We are also the home of Dave Coulier, aka Uncle Joey from the show Full House, and for the nachos from Boat Works. Just look at this masterpiece:
Everybody has a hometown and everybody's hometown is known for SOMETHING, even if that something is really small. It could be a big event, a place, a person... anything! What is your hometown "famous" for? Here are some great comments on Facebook from right here in Iowa:
