    Ever Since I Was a Kid.

    Whenever I'd travel with my parents, I'd love staying in hotels in the middle of a busy city.. At night I would look outside and watch everything going on. It was great :) I even convinced my parents to move the hotel bed closer to the window at one point lol.. must've spent...

    Lights

    I love walking down city streets at night and staring at the lights. For me it's almost like being in an entirely different world. I seem to be able to find myself.

    I absolutely love cities at night.

    They have a special allure about them. I guess it's cause they resemble the stars and it's as if they are at our finger tips but we can touch them. And each light is a home of some kind. And it's a perfect example of how things aren't what they seem. Chicago Night. Circa 2006

    All the Lights..

    Normally I prefer nature, but I love to walk through a city at night. You see the city from a different point of view, you see things you've never seen before, you notice new things. I love the darkness, being disturbed by all the lights. (But I don't like too many lights..)

    A Beautiful Thing.

    There is something wonderful about the night. The energy is so different. Thrilling and exciting! My only battle is that I get sleepy way too fast. lol

    Soothing

    I love walking or driving around London at night and find it a great way to unwind. Recently we had a few nights when it was difficult to get our five year old son to get to sleep, and a half hour drive always does the trick. We try to point out as many things as possible to him...

    Hours That Don't Go To Waste :)

    I love cities at night with all of my heart. Sometimes the bigger, the better :) I seriously spend hours on the computer just looking up cities at night. Along some of my favorites are Miami, Chicago, New York City, and Washington, D.C. Those hours really don't go to waste. I'd...

    Stress Buster

    Going out at night is a real stress-buster. At night there is so much to entertain that you forget your problems for a few hours or all night! There is nothing like city night life, from New Haven to Jacksonville, if it's a city there will be things to do to get it crackin! Going...

    New York

    It was quite a few years ago when I was a wee bairn that I visited New York. We were wandering through the streets going back to the hotel and it was November and dark so it was rather chilly, but the full moon was shining in the sky and it was just beautiful! The ice rink was...

    I'm really surprised this is on here,

    but I love it! Cities at night can be one of the most beautiful sites in the world. I've been in Chicago, London, Paris, and New York at night. Loved the sites.

    One of best country so far

    that I see during at night is HongKong. The building is really nice specially the glow of different light, you can seat on colon side and just look all those building. And it's really nice as well to look down in the city at night specially if your in the plane.

    Behind Those Ruby Drapes

    Top Of The Rock

    I recently went on a trip to New York City. I bought tickets to go to the Top of the Rock, which is the top of Rockefeller Plaza or whatever. Supposedly, it is better than the Empire State Building, so I chose that. I ended up getting the "Sun and Stars" pass, where you go up...

    I Always Explore New Cities At Night

    Whenever I visit a city I've never been to before, I MUST explore them at night. I find they take on such an interesting mystique after dark...I can always get pictures during the day, but night time is when the city really feels most ALIVE. I'm also never afraid of being out...

    Last Night

    But Not A City Girl

    I find city lights at night absolutely stunning. Night is my favorite time to explore new cities (granted I have someone with me) you get to see so much more and a lot less tourists. I grew up in a town with about five street lights... so I am amazed by little things :p

    Manhattan at 11:00pm,

    Sydney at 11:00pm, Los Angeles as soon as sun has sunk over the Pacific!! Looking out over Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley at night from the Tram station and seeing the red lights from all the windmills off Hwy 10 is breathtaking!!

    The best time to go to the city is at night.

    It's full of energy and everything looks much more beautiful and alluring. Almost magical.

    Like Bits of Bright Magic Against the Night-time Sky

    I love to fly into a city at night. The pinpricks of light from houses in the country to the bright yellow glow of towns, suburbs and factories. If it is a city I know I try to identify all I can out the window; landmarks, roads, etc. One of my favorite pictures are the Earth...
