I am looking for a word that qualifies a place people keep coming back to, such as their favourite restaurant, or the grocery store they usually shop at.
The word I am looking for is not 'popular'. For example, if a one-time event is well-attended, it might be qualified as 'popular' because a lot of people attend once. However, individual people will not come back to the same event again.
It should also be neutral, which excludes words like 'favourite' or 'preferred'. For example, you might visit the hospital regularly because of a health condition, but this would not be considered a favourite or preferred place.
Instead, I am looking for a word or expression that emphasises the idea of recurrence without any positive or negative connotation. The closest I have come is:
Regularly visited venues are visited by the same people over and over again.
The local grocery store is among Joe's regularly visited places.
However, I was wondering whether a single word (noun or adjective) or a better expression to convey this idea exists.
