FAVORITE CITIES

 

When people learn about my project they most often will ask me which was my favorite city; to which I usually answer, "too many to name." However, I did manage to pick a few that stood out the most. Shown below, in alphabetical order, are twelve of my favorite cities I discovered during the project.
