Is Your Hometown Special? Budget Travel Thursday, Aug 30, 2007, 4:46 PM Budget Travel LLC, 2016


Is Your Hometown Special?

Prove it! We're looking for someone to write an essay on their hometown (and by "hometown," we mean the place you grew up in). It'll really help if you have a strong point of view, if you can make a persuasive case for visiting the city/town, and if you can come up with the vivid details that bring the place to life. Think your hometown is a winner? Start by filling out the form below to submit a short and convincing description.

Here are a few recent examples from our My Hometown series: Orange County, San Francisco, and Milwaukee.

The submission deadline is December 31, 2007; only one submission per person. We regret that we won't be able to include every submission we receive, and we reserve the right to edit for length and clarity. Once you send in your story or photograph, it becomes our property—intellectual and otherwise.

Where you live now:
(include state and country, if outside the U.S.)
Why it's so great:
How often you go back:
(we'll only contact you if necessary, and we won't give it out!)
(we won't give it out!)
