    Well, my hometown is Ojocaliente but I currently live in Zacatecas. The city is recognized as UNESCO World Heritage. And is a great city to visit. Mexican aren't really accostumed to list "firsts" but here you have some famous persons from the state (I'll try to do my homework on this and maybe edit my post accordingly) we also have great "tacos" and "mezcal" (a stronger kind of world famous tequila).

    We'll also having a great fair soon (in September) so if you'd like to come you're welcome. I can even host a pair of visitors (in a "humble" home), just PM me, or I can contact you with friends that have/work for touristic services.

    I ended promoting my place too much I think, but it's really a nice place.

    Doesn't have to be world firsts, being a world heritage site gives you reason enough to be proud I'd say!

    I live in Portland, Or. While there are a few noteable world firsts here, what really keeps me here is this:

    Within a two hour drive I can be in almost any environment you could ever want.

    Ocean (beautiful beaches)
    Mountains (snow included 365 days/yr)
    Forest
    Desert
    City
    Farms
    Sand dunes
    Lakes
    Rivers

    I moved away for three years to Iowa, and really missed the mountains and beaches. Forests too...in fact, I missed it all. Now I'm back and will never leave Oregon again!

    I lived in Eugene, Oregon for 5 years, and loved it (except for the earthquake I experienced while in a cliff-side hotel). The beaches are beautiful (Haceta Head is my favorite), fly fishing is great, beautiful year-round golf courses, and green everywhere.

    I actually liked the rainy winters. If I had a good job opportunity, I would seriously consider moving back to Oregon.

    Yes, there's some rain to contend with, however I submit,

    You don't have to shovel rain off your sidewalk,
    You don't have to scrape it off your windshield,
    While it's somewhat slippery on pavement, it's not as bad as the ice.

    We do get snow every few years during winter, but if you LIKE snow, you can still find it 365 days/yr on Mt Hood or several other mountains in the general area.

    Weather here is so mild, earthquakes are rare, tornados are all but unheard of.

    It isn't for everyone, but I love it here!

    I was in Portland two months ago for the 4 Wall National Handball tourney. I've been in Brooklyn since I was two so, it's a little different when traffic is stopping for you to cross the street. It got so bad that I was pissed off at the drivers not going when I gave them way. Nevertheless, the people there are great. BTW, it also use to be a big city for racquetball as well.
