Top Ten Most Overrated U.S. Cities


The Top Ten

1 Las Vegas Las Vegas Las Vegas, officially the City of Las Vegas and often known simply as Vegas, is the 28th-most populated city in the United States, the most populated city in the state of Nevada, and the county seat of Clark County.

It's not to bad if you are only there for a day or two to see a concert/convention, but if you are there just to sight-see and you're not into gambling or partying, then you will get bored very quick. I knew it was bad when by the first night I was there, I already wanted to go home.

Why is this here? I mainly come here for sightseeing, eating, some shows, and some partying, but not gambling. I'll NEVER get bored of this place!

Pretty much worthless if you're not into gambling or debauchery. - SplashMoun10

The Vegas you know is different from what I know. Vegas is great

2 New York City New York City The City of New York, often called New York City or simply New York, is the most populous city in the United States.

I never understood why New York City gets so much praise there's a lot of good things but there's also a lot of bad things about it to - christangrant

I like New York City quite a lot, but I do have to admit it's pretty overrated. - SplashMoun10

Too crowded for me anyways...

3 San Francisco San Francisco San Francisco, officially the City and County of San Francisco, is the cultural, commercial, and financial center of Northern California.

Lovely sights, but that's about it. - SplashMoun10

4 Los Angeles Los Angeles

I'd say it's worth visiting at least once, but overall, it's much more style over substance with this city. - SplashMoun10

5 Miami Miami
6 Boston Boston

It’s boring and people are rude

The Contenders

11 Phoenix Phoenix

Literally a cultureless desert filled with boring suburbs. Imagine Las Vegas without casinos and the entertainment and full of old folks. That's what Phoenix is

12 San Diego San Diego

I agree, this place is terrible. Ice cold in winter, blazing hot in summer, plus horrible smoggy conditions with constant wind, and such a boring place. Whatever you do, DO NOT move here!

13 Anaheim

Disneyland is NOT the happiest place on earth!

14 Dallas Dallas
15 Baltimore Baltimore
16 Honolulu Honolulu

Okay, this is going to be an awfully long one. If you’re agoraphobic, summer is absolute hell. This is because of the heat that would travel all across your room, unless you have an AC. If you hate sunlight, then I certainly can’t recommend this city since the sun shines more than the moon, even during the “winter” days of this city. When the sun shines, it shines awfully bright all over your face. Also, the city is densely populated to the point where you can barely even know where you are at one point or another. There is hidden discrimination (although for a rational reason sometimes) against the whites, some have a coherent reason to do so, but others aren’t recommended to do so because they weren’t pulled away from their land. Oh boy, don’t even get me started on the traffic. The density of the people living over in the city is a factor into the traffic, combined with the average tourist count of >2k a day, making the traffic even more painful than it already ...more
