I live in Cypress, California (USA), and the most fun place I drew at was Downtown Disney. It's a small outlet-looking sort of place, but it also has street musicians, plenty of restaraunts, and lots of fun things to do. I particularly enjoyed this one band that played salsa music. People in the crowd were moved by the music, and broke out into dance. Fun to draw for me.

That sounds like a cool spot to draw. I spent most of my day split between home and my studio in an old mill in Indian Orchard, MA. I'd have liked to get some mill drawings in - cool old brick and such - but it was such a drippy cold day I was too wimpy to sit out in the rain.
I wasted too much time around shopping centers. They're by far the worst place to draw I've ever been to. Everything bores me and I don't want to draw, I just want to buy the occasional book. I prefer farmers markets, or just neighborhoods in general, although I also tend to Sketchcrawl without stopping for food, water, or even coffee.
I was at Downtown Disney last year - at Disneyland, right? I like to sketch anywhere there are people congregating. Cafes and neighborhood commercial districts with character are great. And I love to sketch when I travel - everything looks new and fresh in a brand new setting, and it;s a great way to save the memory.
