I recently saw a post asking about tourist attractions in your city/town that you’ve never visited. It basically implied famous attractions.
My question is aimed towards attractions that local residents take pride in and advertise, like the world’s biggest ball of yarn, or the world’s biggest…whatever.
So, what’s in your hometown that the rest of the country has no clue about?
I’ll start with my city: Magnetic Hill and the Tidal Bore.
Magnetic Hill is a spot where you drive your car down to the bottom of a small road, put your car in neutral, take your foot off the break and your car coasts back to the top. The water in the ditches even flows uphill. It’s an optical illusion, but a good one enough to be packed in the summer months.
The Tidal Bore has an apt title. For us locals it is a bore. But again, the summer months seem to draw tourists from all over the world? The Tidal Bore is a small wave (it used to be six feet high, but I doubt it’s even two feet) that runs up against the current of our main river. It’s caused by the Bay of Fundy reaching high tide and forcing it’s water into our smaller river opening. Told you it was a bore.
