    where the action is

    Merriam-Webster's Learner's Dictionary
    ▪ Downtown is where the action is. [=downtown is a very active and exciting place]

    Can I say "I like where the action is" to mean "I like active and exciting places"?

    It would be better as: "I like being where the action is".
