Place to go, people to see

Anyone want to stet a thread on ideas for different socialization. Places to go, different sounds, different ground to walk on etc... anything you can come up with that maybe others haven't thought of?

I was thinking

Park equipment
Men with lots of facial hair
Skate boards
Shopping carts

A tunnel! We had to walk through one to get a to a school sporting event. My dog is fearless and even he was a little nervous about the echoing effect inside.

Trains (as in subways and light rail vehicles)
Public buses (they run very frequently through my neighborhood)

These have been tough for my dog, but he has made a ton of progress in the past couple months. I'm very proud! He no longer tries to run away when he sees a bus, he just make sure he keeps a close eye on it as it passes!
