Number Six: Where People Like To Go

People like to gather around a feature. Watery things are always popular; a fountain, a waterfall, river, canal, sea, lake. They also like areas without any cars even if it is just a small patch of grass covering a traffic roundabout. Architectural features can also be attractive and people will gather around the base of a statue or near a bridge or anywhere with steps or seating. If they are looking for distraction they may go to a museum, zoo or theme park. During holidays many people travel to towns and villages that are considered picturesque.
