    I associate Carmel with Monarch Butterflies, Pebble Beach, and Cannery Row. I know that may be more Pacific Grove / Monterey, but Carmel is still the best place in California to vacation for a weekend! Beautiful! Oh yes, and the shopping...

    Also, wasn't Clint Eastwood mayor of Carmel? I'm pretty certain he was.

    OK, maybe I don't count YET. But I'll get there.
    Homer, Alaska, huh? Is Homer a town small enough where everyone knows one another? An old friend of mine is rumored to have moved to Homer -- I believe he's lived there for 10-15 years -- maybe you know him

    Yes, it was previously mentioned. I think hepcat even stopped her car in his parking spot.

    My hometown is the Birthplace of Ralph Nader. We've seen him recently buying batteries at CVS and a baked potato from Wendy's. My daughter's reaction when I pointed him out to her...."Who?"

    ETA.....I almost forgot, Walter Wick also used to live here. He is the author, photographer of the beautiful children's book series " I Spy"

    My hometown is not famous for anything I know of, except that the novel "Gone With the Wind' was set in the same county. (Not Atlanta, but Tara, Twelve Oaks, all that stuff)
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.
