Hill, The | Nickname | The long, slow climb up Main Street to the top of Mount Pleasant (and quick route down). Until recently “The Hill” was endured with few rewards — today it is mercifully flanked by breweries, coffee shops, ice cream parlours and a restaurant or two.

Usage | “I want to go check out the show at Little Mountain but I dread riding my bike up The Hill…”explore-the-lexicon
