The City from Transmetropolitan.

...what, the foglets are interesting.

Yes. That city. I just want one of those  Makers that aren't high off of the stuff for machines...
Perhaps the otherworld across/over the wall in Neil Gaiman's Stardust.
This town has done us dirty
This town has bled us dry
Weve been here for a long time
And well be here til we die
So we'll finish off the leavings
Of blood and glue and beer
And burn this bloody city down
In the summer of the year

Going transmetropolitan
From arlington house with a 2 bob bit
To the scottish shores today
Going transmetropolitan
Well drink the rats piss, kick the shite
And Im not going home tonight

The world of Last Exile

God yes. I'd love a vanship in my garage. I wonder what the price per barrel is on Claudia fluid these days.

Aside from that...

The Japan from the Ghost in the Shell universe, so I can hang a warning sign on my fence that says "Beware of Tachikoma".

The city of D'ni.

Now that's a place I'd love to visit!

I'd probably have to pick either the 'verse from Serenity or maybe Redwall from the books of said name.

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

I want to go off roading "In The Night Garden"  Cheesy

The locals seem harmless and there's an airship. Plus you'd get a great trials course around those trees.

I love the idea of traditional Japanese houses and my current favourite is the house in My Neighbour Totoro (Hayao Myazaki). I watched it with my lovely grand-daughter, amazed at how she engaged with the images. I would love to live in that film as it recaptures the simplicity of child hood, including the fears and anxieties as well as the freedom and laughter.

Why anyone would <i>want</i> to live in New Crobuzon is beyond me. Yes, its steampunk, but it makes the average dystopia look like the the Island of Sodor. (Thomas the Tank Engine, for those that don't know)- Doesn't mean its not an awesome setting.

Another steampunk world I love is Deepgate from Alan Campbell's Scar Night and Iron Angel - a steampunk city suspended by chains over an abyss, at the bottom of which is something not unlike hell. Not somewhere I'd go for holidays though...

Star Wars universe. Sorry, I know i'm steampunk but who can resist being a starfighter pilot?
Failing that, some sort of steampunk world thats not too heavy on the dystopia and big on the airship-as-a-means-of-personal-transport. Because I love the aesthetic but there are enough battles to be fought in real life. Unless they're airship battles, in which case i'm in, especially if my airship has helium and their's have hydrogen.
I'll stop now.

Rivendell, perhaps. 

Jackson got it *very* right.

I am glad to see I am not alone on this forum, though I do not know if you are obsessive as myself....
Though I must say I prefer Lothlorien to Rivendell, and the Shire to Lothlorien.

Jackson did a superb job all around. Can't wait to see Del Toro's work
