The essence of a place, like the smell of the sea or the tang of a lemon, is the “why” behind all travel. To leave our homes and to discover new textures, tastes, and the lilt of a different dialect or language brings us the sense of both our universality as human beings, and the marvelous ways in which we differ.

In this section, we offer a little bit of that essence for each DGuide city. Read the Overview for flavor, and the History for context. If you’re considering a move, get local detail from Relocation, and see Related Links for even more background.
