Where would you live as a Wizard?
If I woke up tomorrow and had magic, I would want to live smack dab in the middle of a magical community. No trying to blend in with the Muggles for this Witch, I've been doing that for long enough as it is! Now sure, I could see myself living in any number of magical wizard dwellings: Godric's Hollow for one. Imagine living where BOTH Harry Potter and Albus Dumbledore were born!? Wow!! And then of course there's Diagon Alley. I know it's mostly a shopping area but I'm pretty sure I'd feel right at home there! All things considered though, there's still one place my heart belongs to above all others...
Living so close to Hogwarts sounds like perfection to me. Imagine the view (whatever the season) ♥Hogsmeade Village, or simply called Hogsmeade is the only all-wizarding village in Britain. It was founded by Hengist of Woodcroft. Students may sometimes come on weekend trips, but only third year students and above with guardian permission are allowed to visit. Mainly, students frequent the High Street in the village which contains the named specialty shops and pubs such as Zonko's Joke Shop and Honeydukes. Otherwise, they wander on to observe the infamous Shrieking Shack.Hogsmeade is a picturesque little village of cottages and shops, with enchanted candles hanging in the trees during the holidays. It is also near the location of the train station used by the Hogwarts Express.-Source
