Why i Luv Local Places.com!
"What makes you special?" 


Uniqueness and character are traits we like in people. The more you find to admire about a person the more you want to spend time with and get to know them.



Our attitude toward a community is no different than those we have toward people. We rarely frequent communities with nothing special or unique to offer us and we strive to spend as much time as possible in those which offer the best experiences in dining, entertainment and shopping.
