Imagine your place on the bookshelf of the future

Make your setting feel as significant in the writing as it is to the story

Pick up a travel book and find a passage which describes a town or part of a city which you can transform for use in a story. Imagine your character arriving, on the verge of an adventure. Employ all five senses, making your setting feel significant, powerful and full of life. What happens?
