I live in Florida in a small city called Apopka, it means "Big Potato". We are also the indoor foliage capital of the WORLD!

But I only live about 15 miles from downtown Orlando which is famous for our theme parks AKA Walt Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, etc. We also have an incredible nightlife! We are also only about 45 minutes away from Daytona Beach. There is just so much to do here and so many things we are famous for.

The sunny days, the year-round warm climate and the friendliest people on earth (I just had to throw that in there! LOL!)

Here's some more I found on the internet:
  1. Pennsylvania is the first state of the fifty United States to list their web site URL on a license plate.
  2. In 1909 the first baseball stadium was built in Pittsburgh.
  3. Hershey is considered the Chocolate Capital of the United States.
  4. In 1913 the first automobile service station opened in Pittsburgh.
  5. In 1946 Philadelphia became home to the first computer.
  6. The first daily newspaper was published in Philadelphia on Sept. 21, 1784.
  7. In Philadelphia in 1775 Johann Behrent built the first piano in America calling it under the name "Piano Forte."
  8. Philadelphia is the site of the first presidential mansion.
  9. Betsy Ross made the first American flag in Philadelphia.
  10. "Doctor, if you don't give me something to help me breathe, I'm going to stop!" came the urgent cry of 16-year old Frederick Gable of Loganville. Vowing not to lose another patient to pneumonia, Dr. George Holtzapple successfully created the first application of oxygen, thus saving his patient's life and winning international fame through his discovery. The year was 1885.
  11. Philadelphia is home to the cheesesteak sandwich, water ice, soft pretzels, and TastyKakes.
  12. The Rockville Bridge in Harrisburg is the longest stone arch bridge in the world.
  13. The town of Franklin became a center for worldwide oil production following Colonel Edwin Drake's discovery of oil in nearby Titusville.
  14. The Declaration of Independence was signed in Philadelphia in 1776.
  15. KDKA radio in Pittsburgh produced the first commercial radio broadcast.
  16. Each year on Christmas day the "Crossing of the Delaware" is reenacted at Washington Crossing.
  17. The Liberty Tunnel in Pittsburgh opened in 1924. At that time the 5,700 foot facility was the longest artificially ventilated automobile tunnel in the world.
  18. Pennsylvania is the only original colony not bordered by the Atlantic Ocean.
  19. Benjamin Franklin founded the Philadelphia Zoo, the first public zoo in the United States.
  20. Indiana County is the Christmas Tree capital of the world.
  21. Actor Jimmy Stewart was born and raised in the town of Indiana. Each year at Christmas the downtown area is decorated in the theme of the film "It's a Wonderful Life".
  22. Pittsburgh is famous for manufacturing steel. Its professional football team is named the Pittsburgh Steelers.
  23. Fairmount Park in Philadelphia is the largest city park with over 8,000 acres.
  24. Pittsburgh has over 300 sets of city maintained steps. If they were stacked on top of each other, they would reach over 26,000 feet high. They would measure higher than a lot of the Himalayan Mountains.
  25. Philadelphia was once the United States capital city.
  26. Originally Bellefonte, a town now with a population of 5,000, was once considered to be Pennsylvania's capital. But Harrisburg was chosen because of the easy navigation on the Susquehanna River.
  27. In June 1778, a 700 wagon caravan escorted the Liberty Bell on its return to Philadelphia from Allentown along Towamencin's Allentown Road. Nine months earlier, when British troops threatened to capture the city, the bell had been whisked into hiding via the same route.
  28. George G. Blaisdell founded Zippo Manufacturing of Bradford in late 1932. He started with a simple idea: create a product that answers a real need, design it to work, and guarantee it to last.
  29. When completed in 1882, the Kinzua Railroad Bridge near Mount Jewett was acclaimed "the highest and longest railroad viaduct in the entire world." Rising 301 feet from the valley floor at its center, with a total length of 2100 feet
  30. Antrim Township is located in South-Central Pennsylvania with its southern border being a part of the Mason-Dixon line.
  31. During the depression canned goods served as admission to The Star Theater in Mercersburg to help supply the local soup kitchen.

Worms, Germany is more than 2000 years old...there are disputes with the city of Trier and another city of who is the eldest city of Germany.

The famous Nibelungen Saga is playing in Worms.

Martin Luther, the man who defied the catholic church was sentenced to be an outcast in Worms before the German Ceasar...I think it was in 1521....in 8th grade...our religous education teacher taught us about it the whole year....oh boy...I was soo bored
