DO YOU LIVE IN MAGIC CITY?
There is no video for this material- just look below!)
A whole list of American cities have the official nickname of "MAGIC CITY".
Most all of them got their nicknames during the boomtown growth spurts of so many communities in the late 1800s.
The histories of these cities say that their communities popped up as if "by magic".
We pictured Miami in the headline because that was where Jackie was born!
Official "MAGIC CITY" places include:
- Barberton, Ohio
- Billings, Montana
- Birmingham, Alabama
- Bogalusa, Louisiana
- Charleroi, Pennsylvania
- Cheyenne, Wyoming
- Endicott, New York
- Florence, South Carolina
- Miami, Florida
- Middlesboro, Kentucky
- Minot, North Dakota
- Moberly, Missouri
- Muncie, Indiana
- Orlando, Florida
- Roanoke, Virginia
- South Omaha, Nebraska
- Tulsa, Oklahoma
I don't live there, but I have performed in Barberton, Ohio a couple of times. The city had a sort of "Mystique" feel to it. The people were wonderful, it was a great time on both visits.
I grew up in the only town that is the Magic Capital of the World, Colon Michigan. It now has 4 magic shops, Abbott's, Fab Magic, Sterlini's and the newest one Diane Laflins. It also has 2 theaters in town. It is also the home of the Abbott's Magic Get-together, the first week in August.
?? Magical ORLANDO! ?? Of course! That's where yours truly, the "Not-So-Magical-Magician", shot the movie, "Barney in The Land of Make Believe" (at Universal Studios, Orlando). Fun times!!! But, truth be told... Magic is EVERYWHERE!!! You just have to know where to look (not not look). ??
