A recent survey has examined what makes Swansea so good.
Whilst Swansea may be Wales's second city there are lots of things that make it literally premier division.
Apart from the football - don't forget all those people who thought that Swansea would be one season wonders!
Swansea is truly a waterside city.
There are very few that have such an attraction as Swansea Bay actually on their doorstep.
That of course does not include Gower.
This an area of fantastic amenity only a stone's throw from the city centre.
Swansea is one of the few city to retain it's old market.
This has become an institution in it's own right and a standalone visitor attraction.
With the plan's for a new University campus well advanced and a project as exciting as the tidal Lagoon almost a reality the future really is as bright as the weather!
( the sun shining as this is written!!)
