I was born and raised in Tamms, IL. I now live in O'Fallon, MO.
Check out Tamms, IL.
The short version is it's one of the poorest towns in the poorest county of one of the worst run states in the nation.
It is also home to the Tamms Correctional Center which was recently shut down by the governor due to budget cuts.
BUT...I made it out...of prison...just kidding...the town! :rofl:
Check out O'Fallon, MO.
The short version is it's been voted one of the best 100 places to live by Money magazine a few times.
It is home to MasterCard's Global Technology and Operations Center and CITI Mortgage HQ.
Both are too far away from the PRS factory!
Great thread Shawn. Maryland is also known for this.
I am from Detroit, Michigan, a city founded in 1701 by Antoine De La Mothe Cadillac.
But I knew Antoine back in the day, when his last name was still Cohn. He changed it to Cadillac because he liked the car. He had a sidekick named Fleetwood, and together they decided to explore the Great Lakes and establish a settlement for French traders. Their boat had the first tail fins.
Here's a shot of one of Detroit's nicest buildings, though it's a little run down today:
Madison, Wisconsin. We are the capital. Land of beer, cheese and brats. As a city, extremely diverse and eclectic on pretty much all fronts. It's a nice city to live in. Outside of the city, there's a lot of damn cows. We are the dairy state.
I lived in Madison back in the early 90's, graduated from Jefferson..Love Madison, it's a huge melting pot! GREAT city!

Home is a few towns north of Toronto, near some of the best farming soil in the world - the result of ice age glaciers scraping off top soil from hundreds of miles and leaving it at the end of their southerly advance.
And I spend enough time in central PA that I keep half a dozen guitars there.
Born in D.C., raised in MD (Montgomery County), where I've lived pretty much my entire life, except while in school (College Park, MD and Philadelphia) and the time I lived in Columbia, MD during my residency...
I don't get out much...
Born and raised in West Seattle, WA., and now live about 20 miles South in Auburn.
Closer to the mountains where I like to camp, but not to far away from work either where the Boeing 737 jets are built.
I work about 5 miles from the main plant at the simulator center and corporate offices.
And I work about 2 miles from a PRS dealer :D
Many a great band has also come out of the Seattle area too.
Hemantooth mentioned Soundgarden, but also Heart, Nirvana, Queensryche, Hendrix, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, and many more.
I'm from Prague, Czech Republic.
The really cool thing about Prague is the architecture, which is being compared to those of Paris and Rome and London, but that's about it. Sorry for being bitter here, but we suck in general. We were always occupied by some other country and ever since we got our freedom, we're led by the criminal elite, our government representatives' business partners are shooting each other, everyone is trying to snatch the biggest piece of the pie. People are small minded, scared and prepared to lick any boot that's shiny enough. The land of corruption. Everyone of any value went abroad, be it Jaromir Jagr, Milos Forman, Milan Kundera or Jan Hammer.
Even the beer got crappy.
I mean, look at Poland - they've had it even worse in the past and now they are making Mayonse guitars, praised by many, and have at least one decent progrock band that I know of (Riverside). What have we got?
Sorry again, I had to get it out… I'm optimist though and really believe that the next generation will have bigger balls than the previous one.
Living in Northern NJ for the past 26 years....by way of (as Ed Norton would say) "The Garden spot of the world....Brooklyn, USA".
Origninally from Annapolis, Maryland. Now I live in Murray, KY. We're in the far western part of the state (well, commonwealth actually). The Land Between the Lakes National Recreation area is about 20 minutes from here. Nashville is a quick 2 hour drive, Memphis is 3, St. Louis is 3.5. Oddly, they're all closer than Louisville or Lexington. I've been here 17 years after stops in Kansas City, MO and Ann Arbor, MI.
Originally from a little town in East Tennessee called Sneedeville. Home of Doyle Lawson and jimmy martin.
Now I live in Yale ,VA south of Petersburg.
Note to self...Must go to the Hofbrauhaus in KW...
