This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.
I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!

Travel & Leisure named this place their “2nd Favorite City” in 2011. It is still arranged according to James Oglethorpe’s plan, with 22 of the 24 original squares still in place. The old section of the city is a National Historic Landmark.
The Girl Scouts of America started here. Forsyth Park is a true highlight.
This is a great place to sample authentic Southern cooking, especially at Mrs. Wilkes.
