Lorain has the best sunsets

Almost every time I say I'm from Lorain, I get a knowing nod or wince. But I'm a huge fan of the city, and I agree that it's seen better days - but it was truly a sacrificial lamb to industry.

The waterfront was used for manufacturing and ports, the residents trained to do work that went away with outsourcing and a city center abandoned when the highway ended up 5 miles south.

But it has an amazing housing stock, beautiful beaches, walkability and the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen - often viewed from the bow of a boat.
