Well done! I went there once, taking a journey of a lifetime to Kingston to see the home of one of my great heroes. And it was a Sunday, and closed!

but didn't get to his house. There was a room devoted to his career in some other little museum we visited.

38. I used to go to MoBay quite frequently

just to chill (and nothing more!). During one of my trips, I had my hotel book me a cheap flight from MoBay to Kingston just to visit 56 Hope Road. When my taxi driver took me there (on a Sunday), that's when we found out it was closed. It was great, as I talked to the rastamen hanging out at the steps of the house. They were really helpful, but there wasn't anything they could do.

My taxi driver was great, and I decided to just hire him to tour Kingston and its environs. We went to Trenchtown (where Bob Marley and the Wailers grew up), saw the Prime Minister's House near Bob's home, and went up into the Blue Mountains (and of course bought the obligatory bag of coffee).

I love Jamaica!

36. 322 Maple Street

Or 24 Elm Street.
It's a trick question because both addresses are used.
It's in North Carolina. If I gave the city, it'd be too easy.
Oh, and don't ask me why I know this stuff.

46. Nailed It!

There are 3 episodes where that address is used. One episode with the Elm street address.
There are a couple dozen well known continuity errors in the series.
One example is that in season 3, they celebrate Barney's 5 year anniversary as deputy.
The next season, it's stated he's been a deputy for 10 years.
