1. Proper homemade scouse. View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @guayenr You really cannot get good scouse anywhere other than Liverpool. Never accept a poor imitation. 2. The beauty of Sefton Park. Flickr: 24557420@N05 Whatever city or town you move to, you won't find anywhere quite as peaceful or as relaxing as a stroll through this place. 3. The amazing people. Flickr: musicmafiauk Scousers are famous for their friendly side, so moving to London, for example, will remind you there's no place like home. 4. The unavoidable Superlambananas. View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @laurensbond You'll probably loathe them while living here, but as soon as you're gone you'll miss seeing them in all their weirdly-shaped, artistic glory. 5. An unrivalled view of the historic Liver birds. View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @sotremendous The superb view of the Liver buildings from Oh Me Oh My is second to none. Plus nowhere else has iconic buildings as impressive. 6. Those amazing city centre cathedrals. Flickr: ruaraidhg Liverpool Cathedral's breathtaking. As is the Metropolitan Cathedral. 7. Hanging out at the bombed out church. Flickr: grish616 There's often stuff going on at St Luke's, such as music events, film screenings, and exhibitions. 8. The stunning cityscape at night. Creative Commons / Via Flickr: brocksuk Its waterfront and stunning architecture make Liverpool at nighttime incomparable. 9. Strolling across Crosby beach with the iron men. Creative Commons / Via Flickr: jixxer You won't be able to relaxing alongside Sir Antony Gormley's fantastic art sculptures anywhere else. 10. Our collective disdain of The Sun newspaper. Creative Commons / Via Flickr: 36593372@N04 For a city that's had a long, unpleasant relationship with it because of its reporting on Hillsborough, seeing others reading and enjoying it feels wholly unnatural. 11. Having the Albert Dock on your doorstep. Flickr: bevgoodwin / Creative Commons You'll take it for granted most of the time, but the scenic waterfront with its buildings, restaurants, and rich history never gets old. 12. Really Scouse landmarks, like Penny Lane. Creative Commons / Via Flickr: radarsmum67 Some places just ooze history and interest, and there's plenty of places of significance dotted all around the city. 13. The sight of literally hundreds of Santas. Creative Commons / Via Flickr: 11915922@N00 Once a year the Santa Dash proves not only a worthy charity event, but brings parts of the city to a standstill as a sea of red men, women, and children make their way round the street course. 14. The Krazy House. View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @candy_bat Probably the best and worst night out you'll ever have. Both marvellous and diabolical in equal measure. (Also see The Raz as another strong contender.) 15. An unparalleled love for all things The Beatles. View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @sceris Whether it's culture, history, pubs, tours, museums, statues, or fandom, no other city has as much love for the fab four as Liverpool. 16. Bar Cava. View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @zaranabavi Because where else can you line up shots of baked bean, Irn-Bru, chilli, and coconut flavoured alcohol? 17. A city that goes beyond footballing rivalry. Flickr: e_n_gall The 100+ year history and rivalry between Everton and Liverpool – not to mention the common respect and support concerning the Hillsborough disaster – is pretty special, and resonates throughout the city daily. 18. A completely unique cinema experience at FACT. Flickr: grish616 But this place isn't just for watching films on comfy two-seater couches. It's a place to eat, drink, view, and in some instances, participate in art installations and exhibitions. 19. Ridiculously good events like Sea Odyssey: Giant Spectacular in 2012... Flickr: grish616 The only place this amazing three-day event happened; you tend to miss out if you're not in Liverpool. 20. ... and the appearance of La Princesse in 2008 was incredible. Flickr: mjtmail 21. Not hearing unbearable Scouse impressions. Flickr: dullhunk Here, you're never subject to godawful attempts to impersonate a Liverpudlian, whereas when you leave everyone and their dog tries to do one once they find out where you're from.
