    Hogsmeade Station
    de Montfault TheaterThe only train station that travels to and from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Hogsmeade Station is your one-stop-shop for all transportation needs. Almost kitschy in atmosphere, the station is made of big, melodramatic archways and high, vaulted ceilings that serve little purpose. The colors tend to be equally gaudy, and artwork, upholstery, trains, and floor tiles range in color from royal purple to neon orange. A handful of restaurants and gift shops can also be found within.

    Bursting with activity at all hours of the day, every respectable (and those less so) establishment can be found along this avenue, wide enough to accommodate the constant rush of pedestrians and vehicles. The Three Broomsticks, Ollivander's and many other fine places of business can be found in varying states of occupation all day and all night.

    Wellingtonshire
    Wellingtonshire Area ClubsA cut above all of the rest, Wellingtonshire is the residential lane for those of considerable means. Though the houses are tightly compacted and built somewhat like miner's homes, the outer facades are deceiving. Enchanted to hold more than they ought, the homes of Wellingtonshire are exceptionally and intimidatingly grand on the inside, and few pedestrians litter the immaculately kept streets for fear of being thought of as potential thieves.

    Padmore Park
    A beautiful and colorful garden has been carefully cultivated over the spring and is now ready for summer use. It is large but still manages to be cozy. The green leafage is spread all around with bright and colorful flowers sprinkled thickly throughout. Among the sprawling grass and a shady copse of twisted trees are paved paths, perfect for walking or bicycling. Different benches are scattered about, some shaded some in the sun, for those who merely want to rest. The lawn is open enough to offer a game of croquet or lawn tennis, or even play host to a picnic. A large pond can be found off to one side of the garden, an inlet from the Black Lake. Several charmingly decorated boats are enchanted to give lazy and gentle rides around the pond, though the spells are not strong enough to resist the tampering from troublemakers. As far as anyone knows, there aren't any creatures that live in the lake aside from a couple of gentle giant goldfish. Several families of ducks have decided to make the place their home, as have dozens of songbirds. In the evenings, the park is lit up by golden orbs that levitate above the walking paths. They have been known to become attached to a person and to try to follow them home, so keep an eye out. A person of any class is welcome here, though most stick to their own social circles and ignore the rest.

    Bartonburg
    Bartonburg Area ClubsHome of the middle class, the Bartonburg District is a modest but extremely dense bit of Hogsmeade, holding more than half of its inhabitants in a series of townhouses that all interconnect in various, confusing ways. Homes are known to be stacked aslant on top of one another, though naturally the magic ingrained into the architecture makes the homes of the Bartonburg District sturdy, cozy, and just big enough for your average family.

    Pennyworth
    Redeveloped in 1886, this district boasts a cleaner, safer quality of living for the working class. Well-lit by gaslights and with ample curb appeal, Pennyworth is not affordable to all members of the lower class. (For specifics on residency, see this announcement.)

    The Slums
    The Slums are just as glamorous as they sound. Built amidst a din of less than savory people and street purveyors, The Slums are where the lowest class dwells. Small, squat, shack-lack buildings line the streets, which are littered with garbage and muck. Though during the day The Slums are unpleasant, it's the night which really gives the area a bad name — even those who live here are rarely seen outdoors after nightfall, as the shadiest of characters can be found in every nook and cranny.

    Asphodel Cemetery
    Named for the asphodel flowers that grow wild around the tombstones, Asphodel Cemetery is a quiet and mysterious place when the sun is shining. In the evening, it's been rumored to be haunted by the most terrifying ghosts who howl and whine throughout the late hours. Those who visit at night have been said to have never been the same - some say cursed, some say terrified into craziness and others say it's unexplainable. It is tucked away on a hill that overlooks the village of Hogsmeade. The only way to reach it is by following winding paths through the village that lead out to the slums and slightly through the Forbidden Forest. The graves are new, with the oldest being only a few years old.
