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.

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 San Francisco

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

3 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...

4 Boston Boston

It’s boring and people are rude

5 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

6 Miami Miami
7 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!

8 Washington D.C Washington D.C
9 Portland Portland Portland is the largest city in the U.S. state of Oregon and the seat of Multnomah County. It is a major port in the Willamette Valley region of the Pacific Northwest, at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers.
