McLean, Virginia, US; have lived in: Washington, DC; Baltimore, MD; Silver Spring, MD (I used to say Takoma Park, MD because it is cooler);Arlington, VA; Brookline, MA; Newton, MA; Leominster, MA; Mt Vernon, IN; Pittsfield, MA; Lenox, MA; Covington, KY; Rochester, NY; Cambridge, MA (where it all began)
Not much of a world traveler or even US for that matter: France/Switzerland 1977; UK/France 2000; Baltic cruise 2006; Montreal & Quebec City 2007 & 2008 (the second time was chaperone a school band trip - good times); Los Angeles 2x;Orlando 3x (including yet another band trip); Atlanta (yup, band trip); and Chicago, 2x
But this year I am doing 2 trips: in April hiking in Zion & Bryce (Mormon Country, can't wait) and in September husband and I are going to Italy!!! For us, first long vacation without kids since honeymoon (in 1987!!). Both kids will be in college happy/sad.
I hope to get to Toronto one of these days. Heard it is a good city.
Since Virginia is likely to be my permanent home, am happy to represent with the caveat that I am from Northern Virginia which is very different from other parts of the state. Although, I do have family roots going back to SW Virginia so I'll claim that.

"Tony, I love that clip! "Wolf Gets Blitzed"...tee-hee.
Did anyone read the comments below the You Tube version? they were almost all like, "Yeah, thank the lard for sending a ghastly tornado to kill more than 50…"
