    Guess the City 245: No Picture Edition 9

    You get to guess what city I am. Let's see how you do.....

    I have hillside mansions, many built more than one-hundred (100) years ago. Many folks know me because of my "signature" bridge. Quite a few museums are within my boundaries.

    A historic brewery still operates here. I have an interesting warehouse district. A major outdoor publication said that I am in the Top 10 for outdoor recreation.

    What city am I?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Good guess, but wrong. No signature bridge in metro De Noc. Please try again. Thank you.

    The Steel City of Pittsburgh, PA.?

    Would Iron City count as a historic brewery?

    If I win, do I get an all expense paid trip to the plastic factories of De Noc?

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    Third alternate guess: Newport, RI. Have a 'gansett!

    Houghton, MI? I guess this because I figure the answer has to be on the UP somewhere I thought San Francisco was a great answer, though.
