I've never been..So Know one knows exactly. All I know is the roads are paved with gold. Its peaceful you have no emotions like sad and mad. You never have to worry about eating or anything and you can fly..ah..I have always wanted to fly and you get a halo.
Study the Bible (Basic Information Before Leaving Earth) and have Faith. Believe in Christ and it is certain He will ensure you spend eternity in Heaven instead of an eternity in Hell. Then you will have all the answers you have ever wondered about.
Surely heaven will be a place of joy and productive work. We can be sure that in heaven we will be like God and Jesus, and they have always worked. Jesus said, "My Father worketh hitherto, and I work" (John 5:17). We find this same description of the new heavens and new earth in Revelation 21:1 and Isaiah 65:17. Isaiah describes it as a place of joy where there will be no tears nor the sound of crying. This is in Isaiah 65:19, and also in Revelation 21:4; 7:17. Isaiah continues to show us it will be a place where one can labor and see his labor bear fruit. This is in Isaiah 65:21-23.
Heaven will have a beauty beyond our imagination. The best John could do to describe heaven was to say it was like an entire city of transparent gold. He says: The walls of the new city are precious jewels. The gates are twelve single pearls. The city itself and its streets are pure gold, yet like transparent glass. This is found in Revelation 21:18, 19, 21.
"Scripture repeatedly makes clear that heaven is a realm of unsurpassed joy, unfading glory, undiminished bliss, unlimited delights, and unending pleasures. Nothing about it can possibly be boring or humdrum. It will be a perfect existence. We will have unbroken fellowship with all heaven's inhabitants. Life there will be devoid of any sorrows, cares, tear, fears, or pain. -John MacArthur " What Will Heaven be Like taken from The Glory of Heaven"
Sahl bin Sa'd (May Allah be pleased with him) said: I was in the company of the Prophet (PBUH). He gave a description of Jannah and concluded with these words, "There will be bounties which no eye has seen, no ear has heard and no human heart has ever perceived." He (PBUH) then recited this Verse:
"Their sides forsake their beds, to invoke their Rubb in fear and hope, and they spend (in charity in Allah's Cause) out of what We have bestowed on them. No person knows what is kept hidden for them of joy..." (32:16,17)
Babylonian Talmud in Berachot 57b says, "three things are like Olam Ha'ba: Sabbath, the Sun, and sex". Olam Ha'ba is the Jewish concept that Christians call heaven. By Sabbath it means the calmness and tranquility of the day of rest. By the Sun it means the beauty of sun rise. I don't need to explain what it means by sex. However, the word the Talmud uses, "tashmish", can also mean other things, not just sex. One rabbi said it means going to the bathroom for a number 2. So that's what heaven is like.

The Bible describes heaven as a hive of activity. It mentions hundreds of millions of faithful spirit creatures who live there. (Daniel 7:9, 10) Each of these spirit creatures has his own distinct personality. How do we know that? In all observable creation, no two living things are exactly alike, so we can be sure that in heaven, there is great diversity as well. Remarkably, all these heavenly personalities work together in unity, thus providing an admirable contrast to the earth today, where people rarely cooperate well.
Notice how the Bible describes activity in heaven. “Bless Jehovah, O you angels of his, mighty in power, carrying out his word, by listening to the voice of his word. Bless Jehovah, all you armies of his, you ministers of his, doing his will.” (Psalm 103:20, 21) So a lot of work is being done in heaven. We can be sure that it is satisfying work.
There will never be darkness, only light. But it won't be from the sun, it will be from God's glory. You can have a feast, enjoy all kinds of food, but not because your hungry, just because of the pleasure of food. You will meet your great grandpa, your great great grandpa, your great, great, great grandpa, ect. and hear their life's stories. You will never get to cold or too hot, never get sick again, never cry again. You will never get tired or need to sleep. It will be awesome.
