What makes a place home?

Is it the four walls that you reside in or is it something a bit more?

Outside of those four walls are a town, a city, and a state that feels like a worn-in sweater. It’s familiar, comforting, and holds memories that make you, you. Whether you like it or not, it’s the place where your roots are deep and it’s where all your surroundings feel like “home”.

Traveling is human nature. Whether it’s with friends, family, or alone, you’re bound to venture out for however long, and while the journey to the destination is filled with anticipation, the journey back home is filled with a different kind of joy. As you make the trek back home and hop on I-195, certain landmarks that line the SouthCoast landscape serve as welcomed signs that you are almost back home.

So, which landmarks are they for you? After a long day of traveling or a long ride home, which landmarks speak to you and say, “I'm almost there”?

As a Rhode Islander, the gnome murals near Exit 21 on Route 95 always get me excited because I’m only a short ride away from finally being home. The Big Blue Bug is another one, and so is the Superman building in Providence.
