Hello everyone and welcome to a printed tour of Fourside. I'm more than happy to have you as a guest. I typically write news stories for our local paper, the Eagleland News Central. As a resident of Fourside for many years, I often see visitors; many people who come here tell us that our city is bigger than any they had ever seen before. Many come for the shopping, others for our world renown Dinosaur Museum additionally the widely known Topolla Theater is yet another popular tourist attraction.

If I may, I'd like to take a moment to note on the city's development. Each corner of the city holds a place of interest and it is a very easy city to navigate. The people are quite polite and are always happy to assist visitors with easy to follow directions.

We'll start our tour with the beautiful bridge that leads us from the Dusty Dunes Desert to our lovely city. The view of the sea is absolutely exquisite. Widely known rumors tell of a rainbow of colors being visible as pedestrians walk along the bridge are greatly exaggerated and are mostly due to the sea slapping against the bridge structure, in a similar way that a simple garden hose can create a rainbow when sprayed against a surface. Occasionally it's even possible to see digging equipment on it's way to the desert. I wonder what they could be looking for in the desert?

As we move onward, we come to the entrance of the city. Immediately in view as we head left, you can see our five star hotel. Many famous celebrities have stayed there over the years and they showcase them in the dining hall. I've heard that even the great hero, Ness, even stayed there. I'm sure he got a well deserved rest there. Their rooms are so clean and comfortable. The beds have the most comfortable sheets and pillows. Among other services, they offer a free continental breakfast, a free morning newspaper every morning that you are a guest.

Moving around the block, you can view our famous Topolla Theater. I've heard many famous musicians got their start there and some of which still reside in the city today. Currently Venus is the most popular musician performing. The Runaway Five were here for a while as well. I really don't know why they left. This very theater brings in an upwards of two hundred people every night. The more popular musicians get a large percentage of the ticket sales, so there should have been enough incentive to stay and the city is beautiful too!

Moving on, to the left we can see our world famous Dinosaur Museum. In it's walls reside many valuable remains of creatures that lived long ago. While the museum is not overpopulated, Dinosaur remains are difficult to come by and it is a worthy place to take the children. Many children are excised when they see the Dinosaur inside. Mr. Fork often lets in children for no cost at all. He really is a good man.

Fourside is also home to the world renowned Monotoli building, a forty eight story structure that houses many important people. I'm actually not sure what they do there, but I would bet it has something to do with the marketing and research and development of computers. Not being a computer person myself I don't know much about that kind of thing, but I can say for sure that it's tough to get in to ask questions. Mr. Monotoli must be a very security conscious man. They wouldn't even let a cute young girl like me above the waiting room.

Next up is our famous Department Store! We have all kinds of shopping experiences. We have endless clothing shops and a food court that can serve up to one hundred people at a time. This houses a lingerie shop that one of the more famous ENC Advertisement Dept writers worked at during College. I often stop by that very shop to pick up various articles and to see if he's visiting. Other places of interest include our up to date arcade which the children always enjoy; the toy shop that sells many types of baseball bats and slingshots, teddy bears and other toys; a fully stocked pharmacy and others.

Around the block from the Monotoli building, you can see the Fourside Bakery. The staff is fast and waiting times are very short. They serve many wonderful foods and the tastes are as varied as possible. I recommend their cheese cake, it's so good! Their cookies are also very good too. They have so many types of good food that I can never make up my mind about what to eat!

We're nearing the end of our journey, next up is Jackie's Cafe! Heading straight past the Monotoli building, it's easily accessible. Formerly a bar, it changed with the times to become a family friendly establishment. They serve food there and even coffee. I must say it's a good thing they don't serve alcohol, that swill is so bad for the body. The atmosphere inside is warm and welcoming. Some people are dissuaded because Jackie has an eye patch, but I think that's terrible. People should be as accepting to him as much as he is to them even with their differences.

Our final stop is the EarthBound 2 planning building. When I visited, security was very tight indeed. Even asking very politely wouldn't get me in! I wonder what goes on in that building. Nobody in Fourside seems to know what going on there and say the building appeared mysteriously one morning. I wonder what they do there, but I can't do anything here.

That concludes our tour of Fourside. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Driving through Fourside is always a blast! There's always something interesting going on here. They call it the city that never wakes up for a reason, it never gets a chance to sleep! Ciao, hope to see you again for another travel guide!
