I am constantly researching places, in order to decide where to go next. This might give me some ideas.

Where do u live, and what do u recommend that visitors do there?

I live in Munich.
U can stay at a tent place for around 10 Euros a night. It is a huge tent, with rows of beds.
There are a few good heavy metal clubs, in the city.
There are flights from here to various european destinations, for very good prices, with Condor airlines.
U can go to the Alps mountain villages on the train, from the city.
If anybody wants to know more detail, just ask.

Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

Known as Steeltown, we manufacture over 80% of Canada's steel here.
Lakeport Brewery is our local beer.
We are home to the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, Dundurn Castle, Whitehern, and the Royal Botanical Gardens.
Hotels are the best bet, although they are few, we are not a big tourism city.
We are about 1 hour from Toronto, a city full of nightlife and culture and wonderful things.
Hamilton is less than an hour from Niagara Falls, no explanation needed there.

Utrecht, right in the middle of the Netherlands.
Utrecht is a very nice city, 4th largest in holland and has some characteristic feeling just as Amsterdam, with canals and the Dom tower. Amsterdam is just a 25 minute train ride away.
Utrecht has several youth hostels, but nicest one is a 5 minute busride away just outside utrecht. It's a stayokay hostel on the countryside between bunnik and utrecht (probably 15 euro or so).

Actually, to explore holland utrecht is the ideal base, no mayor city or town is more than 1-1,5 hour away, apart from Groningen and Maastricht (about 2 hours).
For some countryside feeling, just rent a bike instead of a car, distances are short and it's much cheaper, and of course holland is famous for bicycle lanes.

Amsterdam, but there's plenty of information about my city available on TP already.

I grew up in Zwolle, a small provincial town in the north-east of the Netherlands. You should definitely visit it, and see some of its splendid medieval buildings (Zwolle used to be an important member of the Hansa league) and experience the everyday routine of the average dutchman (believe me, the Zwolle people are quite average). Since it's only 75 minutes from Amsterdam by train and on your way up to Groningen, you can easily make a daytrip out of it.

My Home is in Anglesey, North Wales.
A small island on the North west tip of Wales.
It was the Last strong hold of the Druids in Europe.
My town (Amlwch) had the largest copper mine in the world in the 18th century.
You can catch the ferry from Anglesey to the Republic of Ireland.
We have 2 bridges to cross onto the island.
We all (pretty much) speak Welsh (and English too)
We love to get tourists to my town as it's off the beaten track, so this in turn has encouraged me on my travels to go off the beaten track

I live in Lund, southern Sweden. I'ts one of the oldest towns in Sweden, and it shows. It's the cosiest little town ever, with loads of historical buildings, streets and churches, loads of cultural stuff going on (music, movies, theatre, dance, etc.) and loads of cosy places (cafés and restaurants) to hang out. It feels a lot larger than it is, and it's only 15 minutes from Malmö and 30 minutes from Copenhagen. Although it's not by the sea all beaches are easily accessible, the closest one is only 10 k's away.

I live in Belfast Northern Ireland - famous for political unrest l suppose! But thankfully we have moved on quite a bit!! Huge regeneration going on, birthplace of the Titanic, some great hotels, restaurants and pubs. Great city break, take a mural tour to see Belfasts history through street painting. Oh and bring an umberella - your in Ireland expect rain!!! From Belfast you can head to North Coast and visit the Giants Causeway about 1 hour drive direct or 2 hours if you take the scenic North Antrim Coastal Route (much more pleasant and picturesque!). Expect to pay around £2.75 approx for a pint of beer!!
