Tell Us Now: What's Your Hometown Known For (That No One Actually Knows)?

Whether it's "biggest ball of twine" or "most people driving into buildings," there's something that makes your city notable, even if outsiders don't really care to note it. Our cities will try to sell us hometown pride over something.
