General Hospital (1963-present) and Port Charles (1997-2003)

General Hospital

GH began with stories about the life of Dr. Steve Hardy and his pal, nurse Jessie Brewer, and throughout nearly 50 years of drama from Luke and Laura and Liz (Taylor, a guest star), much of the action has continued to take place at the town's healing center (also featured in the now-defunct spin-off soap Port Charles). Heartthrobs from Rick Springfield to Scott Reeves have all spent some of their best years there.
