    There's so many great sci fi and fantasy towns like Smallville, Hill Valley, Sunnydale, Silent Hill, etc.

    My favorites are Hill Valley, because Marty McFly. Doctor Brown, and the DeLorean are from there, plus we get to see it at various points in time.

    Seoond favorite is Silent Hill from the video game series of the same name. Much more than a creepy monster town. You confront your troubled past here.

    Metropolis. Mainly because it's not that far from where I go to school. Metropolis, Illinois that is. :p

    Sunnydale. At least before it got scrunched in the battle with the First that is.

    I'd have to go with Sunnydale as well. Before it became a great big hole, there was nothing in the worlds you couldn't find there in terms of monsters.

    Either Metropolis or Marvel's New York City. Also, not city, but I'll take Larry Niven's Draco Tavern in Siberia as a location to be at.

    I'm surprised no one's mentioned the planet Riza from TNG.

    I'd say Eureka. All kinds of cool/geeky people and stuff happens there, and it doesn't really faze them. That's my kind of town. :cool:

    "Is that a super death ray popping out of the ground in the main street? Oh well. Can I have a latte, please?"

    I'd choose Eerie, Indiana myself. With all the weird happenings we saw on that old TV show it would be quite an adventure.

    San Dimas. It has more excellent waterslides than any other species that they communicate with.

    I forgot about Arrakeen, and I guess Sietch Tabr can be considered a town as well.

    "San Dimas High School football rules!"

    Mine would have to be Cloud City. That along with Coruscant pays homage to the wild Archigram and other architects' concepts during the 1960s. :p
