10. Try a new coffee house.
Coffee houses can be found in every city and every neighborhood, and they often serve up much more than just java. Coffee shops are packed with interesting locals, so if you really want to get a taste of all your city has to offer, check out a new neighborhood, indulge in a cup of Joeand chat with your fellow residents.

11. Visit the most historic part of your city.
Admitting that you don’t know much about your city’s history is the first step toward learning to love where you live. Many of us go through the daily grind—breakfast, work, gym, drinks, dinner, TV, bed—without really noticing what is happening around us, and what has happened there in the past. Take a day to visit the most historic sites in your city and expand your knowledge about the place you call home.
