Come on, B-Low.

You are supposed to be repping our great city, not ripping it. Maple Heights FTW!

The biggest sh!thole I've ever been to is probably St. Maarten, followed closely by LA. I went on a cruise through the Caribbean a few years ago and St. Maarten was one of the stops. The tourist area was well-kept as you would expect, but I always check out the actual cities when I go places, even if it is recommended that you don't stray from the tourist areas (as the staff did on this particular stop).

I soon discovered why travel into town is frowned upon. It was extreme poverty, an ungodly amount of drug-dealers that flock to any Americans that they see (in a bit of a scary way) and I even had a man offer me an underage prostitute (I was only outside of the tourist area for about an hour).

Guy in a white suit driving a Benz pulled over to the sidewalk me and my buddies were walking on with a girl of about 13 in the passenger side and asked us if we were looking for a party while patting her leg. It was so disturbing, I didn't even know how to respond.

LA was basically my nightmare city, though. Insanely dirty, crowded, sprawling and a generally awful vibe in the air that is hard to describe. The weather may be warm, but that is one cold city at its core. No one looks happy, it takes two hours to drive 10 miles... Awful.

Honestly the worst ive ever been to was the outskirts of New Orleans. Yeah the areas that are all touristy are beautiful and fun (Bourbon St, etc) with all the mardi gras themes, fountains, music, dancing, food...but if you go to the actual hoods of NO then good lord. It was horrible (and this was PRE katrina)

That's not the first time I've heard somebody boast about Arizona. Apparently it's one of the most beautiful places to live or travel to in all of North America...

What did you think about places like Santa Monica/Venice Beach? While I agree with the core of your post, there are some fun areas.

I think part of the appeal of being LA is being far away from home, and searching for that "quinessential SoCal" experience, which can be found in places south of.

I don't know about the city , but the traffic is the worst I've ever encountered.
It puts Chicago to shame.

Beloit Illinois - - - why did they name it after the city across the border in Wisconsin ? Ying vs Yang

Dallas is fun as hell and I've been all over to major cities in the US and didn't grow up here so I don't know what you are talking about dude.

Sounds like you were just an idiot that didn't know where anything was or how to get there without using highways. I can walk to bars and clubs no sweat and can just jump onto the DART for further places.





Lubbock, Texas and South Bend, Indiana have to be the two worst places I have been to in the US.

Crime rise it's LA by far. Drivebys cop shootings, etc. Stuff was crazy.


Go back to Omaha or wherever the hell you're from then...
