Top Ten Worst Cities In the United States

The Top Ten

1 Detroit, Michigan Detroit is the largest and most populous city in the U.S. state of Michigan. Located across from Windsor, Ontario, Canada on the Detroit River, Detroit had an estimated population of 672,662 in 2018.

I live right off Eight Mile, and have worked in Detroit as a delivery driver for a few years. I have never been robbed although there are hundreds and thousands of abandoned houses some blocks have one occupied house plenty of blocks have none. But being an outsider, you can drive through Detroit and have nothing to worry about. It's when you are in area's you do not belong when you are in danger, mainly engaging in illegal activities like drugs. Unfortunately there are a lot of innocent people who do get robbed and unfortunately murdered. So in closing Detroit is a rough run down City with limited police resources. The new mayor is trying to help bring it back but it is an uphill battle that is being lost. But Detroit has a stigma for being very bad and dangerous when in all actuality if you are not somewhere you shouldn't be like buying drugs or committing crimes and you are just minding your own business, 99.9% of the time, you will be just fine.

Super dangerous, tons of crime, and BANKRUPT. I live an hour away from Detroit. Most of the suburbs are nice, mainly Macomb and Oakland county (I have two houses, one in Rochester and one in Saint Clair Shores ) But anyways, Detroit sucks. By the way, if you're moving to the suburbs 5 minutes from Detroit, bring a gun... You're gonna need it...

1# most unfriendly and dangerous in the USA

I don't think the same Detroit been doing that from my understanding is that your mad of little things you have fixing it! facts...

2 Englewood, Bergen County, New Jersey

Terrible cruel people like to watch children and people suffer. So many there hurt and afraid, try to stay safe hiding in their homes but fail. Worst corruption and organized crime and terror working together behind a veil of the worst dirtiest jurisprudence in history, censorship and cruelty to any who won't keep quiet. Any who could expose put in grave danger, leave and don't come back is good advice. People only stay because they don't believe the system and many evil people could be that bad, only listen to lawyers after too late. Read up on the holocaust and see what communities caused it, to whom and why, more common than most think and so is the blowback.

Only devout racists and hateful radicals should move to Bergen County, in and around Englewood and the filthy County Capital Hackensack, unless you watching your loved ones being slowly eaten alive. Not much different in much of Central or North Jersey, across from the big cities are the worst.

Many Englewood people suffer constant harassment, torture and defamation and character assassination and worse to people and their children. Schools are dangerous. Web search on all the drive by murders, police torture videos and multii-million dollar suits and charges against Englewood police and city. Bergen County known for Islamic and Libyan Terror with many ISIS and al-Qaeda arrests and FBI targeting Hackensack high schools to stop ISIS infiltration with videos, many school bomb threats with bomb threats also to Bergen County Court House Judges who have the worst reputation in the United States, even ordering 'forced injectible psychotropics' to parents trying to save their kids from criminal abduction and involuntary commitment to terrible centers such as Bergen Regional Medical Center, all reminiscent of history's worst including Edwin Ellenbogen the NJ State Eugenicist and original State Psychologist who was sentenced to life imprison for the sole responsibility of the murder ...more

St Louis should take it's place? Camden in Camden County, New Jersey had the highest murder rate in history well above St. Louis until the entire police force was fired and replaced immediately resulting in the murder rate falling by 2/3, learn. The New Jersey State police corruption in Bergen County used firing all police in Camden just prior to threaten people in Bergen County (Englewood) saying their family would be attacked and killed in Cherry Hill in Camden County to make them to afraid to say anything about police corruption and a literal violent New Jersey Police State. Still unresolved but human and constitutional rights groups are fighting for change. Anti-Semitic attacks primarily in New Jersey and New York where 6 million live are an example of the explicit State terror as made clear and in the open in the worst cities including ***Englewood*** and surrounding (local/county/state) police enforced double hyper-segregated communities led by Hackensack the Bergen County ...more

3 Chicago, Illinois Chicago, officially the City of Chicago, is the third-most populous city in the United States. With over 2.7 million residents, it is also the most populous city in both the state of Illinois and the Midwestern United States. Chicago is considered one of the most important business centers in the world. ...read more.

There is absolutely no reason to ever live to Chicago. Horrible weather, corrupt politicians, extremely high amount of crime, and an absurd amount of taxes are only a few reasons to leave. Chicago was also the only major metropolitan area to lose population. No one has any proposal to fund the pensions, and the state is completely bankrupt. Do yourself a favor and steer away from this hell hole. Many other great cities to visit and move to, and this one is pretty close to the bottom of the barrel.

Seriously, Chicago invented the skyscraper, Ferris wheel and Cartoon, it's got more history than most cities as young as it is. what type of idiot would vote this as bad?

An idiot that is not blind to the black-on-black genocide that occurs in this city every single day, despite never reaching our T.V. screens. An idiot who sees through the bull stories of white cops shooting black civilians, when everyday there are more black civilians killed by fellow black civilians. These stories never make the news because they can't be glamorized and marketed into a national sensation like a white cop shooting a black man who was coming at him aggressively. That's the type of idiot that would vote for Chicago on this list. Guess that makes me one.

Why is Chicago on this list. I live here and I love it.

Opinionated One is correct. Once a fine city it is now a crime ridden cesspool. Sure the violence is concentrated in certain areas but I'm sure you can say that about most cities. Liberal administrations have destroyed the American cities from the awful education systems to deteriorating infrastructure. And mayor Rahm Emanuel is a Obama mouth piece with a blind eye to all the violence.

4 Camden, New Jersey

Who says it's just oppressed Camden. Don't think Democratic Fascist/Communist New Jersey and police have been keeping it that way for decades along with Newark - they say so in wealthy parts of Cherry Hill, doubt Princeton much better. And Islamic Patterson? Try the rest of Camden County and even worse Bergen County for the real terror and organized crime and corrupt friends. Don't forget where the 9/11 terrorists came from or Cherry Hill Fort Dix Terrorist. The 9/11 pilots leisurely drove into NYC after spending a nice summer in North Jersey. The WTC bombers leisurely flew back from Jersey City after a week or so, must have been bored. Camden is too poor for them to live and they use them anyway, apparently target practice and maybe arms and drug sales and the best medical practice for all those young doctors to learn - on gunshot wounds - little Hitlers, just ask. Experimental drugs need someone to practice on especially kids. Doctor's from the South Side of Chicago are pretty clear ...more

Even leaving the crime rate (which is considerable) out of the question, have you seen it? It's hideous!

First of all, this should be 2nd (above Chicago, NYC, and Anchorage). The crime rate is TERRIBLE. Chicago and NYC are good, and Anchorage is very good so I don't know why it's there.

Camden is a terrible place, talk about ghetto. How is the beautiful safe city of NYC above this crime cesspool.

5 Trenton, New Jersey

Child Trafficking Capital of the World with NJ DCF and DCPP violently abducting 8,000 children every year for $1.7 Billion and handing to the worst low quality families on record, usually from down under and try to take the kids there, bunched into 6 in a small lice and rotten food ridden nightmare to be beaten and starved until sold in another country or 18 and thrown out on the street to join the worst human and sex trafficking industry in the world. Parens Patriae is from the Dark Ages and sells and traffics children while stealing from the social security fund through SSACT Title IV resulting in 'legal kidnapping' and crimes against humanity against the children and families of New Jersey. Crhistie did it, Murphy does it, we have to act to bring it to an end. Shared Parenting and stopping Clinton's ASFA and New Jersey getting all that money for trafficking children - Vote them Out! Learn by searching for 'Corrupt Business of Child Protective Services' by Senator Nancy Schaefer ...more

Trenton is the capital of the worst most corrupt state in America. How bad can it be? The absolute worst of the worst.

Trenton has one of the most poor, uneducated and crime-ridden demographics in the United States. All the Cities in New Jersey are bad Except Cherry Hill? They're all bad. Cherry Hill is full of terrorists (Fort Dix Terrorists), terror-causing groups (JDL types), hate groups, reverse hate groups, violent schools and dangerous people all hiding under the New Jersey concealment and censorship of a scared silent media (Menendez parents and Reisenbach Nightmare on Jane/Grenwich Street Murders).

All the cities (except for Cherry Hill) are the worst because it's New Jersey! It sucks in New Jersey and also in New York.

6 Hackensack, New Jersey

Worst criminal corruption in US cause most terror in the US and world today. Hackensack filthy capital of terrorists and corruption working together in one building City Hall/Courthouse devolving from there. Prosecutor, sheriff, police and officials (State, County and Local) worst abusive criminals in US and cause or center of most Islamic, Libyan, Neo-Nazi terror in US and NYC and 9/11 attacks and more recent. Chief of Detectives Sherman shot wife in head with police gun claimed suicide, then committed as arraigned, more recent head shooting'terror' related. First principal to keep quiet about crime and corruption and evil people or all turn against and follow to destroy starting when very young. Worst corrupt influence on incompetent politicians causing the terror in the world today from Bergen County's evil and hateful people, you know who they are, read the lead CIA agent who spent 10 years following bin-Laden explain who is the cause - now and has been from the worst parts of New ...more

Horrific Hackensack Chief judge for the County recently ruled 'behavioral modification' with drugging of innocent healthy children in schools is 'standard' and stated parents complaining must be delusional and unstable. Parents of girls who are intelliigent, have great self-control and maturity and even considered 'sweet' are complaining their children have been involuntary subjected to these 'treatments' and are aftraid of schools with children reporting (corrupt) DYFS and police presence in schools watching children. Many kids taken and placed with 'foster parents' known to be starved and beaten/bruised with complaints going unanswered or children then victimized with many parents 'terrified' after talking to DCPP case workers or school authorities including the best medical professionals leaving the country after extreme abusive contact. Others bringing suit.

Bergen Regional Medical Center where the worst DCF/DCPP/DYFS (failed federal oversight since 1999) take State abducted children to permanently involuntarily institutionalize, drug, abuse and medically torture (like Justina Pelletier) recently changed their name to the New Bridge Medical Center to hide their horrific past once they became known terorrizing and torturing Bergen County New Jersey children and parents. Beware the New Jersey Family Division Judges now under federal civil rights complaints and charges for horrific terror to children.

Hackensack capital of Bergen County New Jersey Worst hellish nightmare Court (Judge and sociopathic DCPP henchmen among others) orders forced injected psychotropics to anyone they victimize or want to keep quiet about severe corruption, malfeasance and abuse and orders forced non-consensual committment to the worst involuntary medical centers in history to children (including Bergern Regional Medical Center) to permanent harm with dangerous experimental psychotropics and overdosing until they can't speak and suffer nightmarish horrors.

Stay away and keep your children and families safe from these monsters until better federal oversight becomes available, allready have federal oversight as the worst in US but has failed to protect the people and children of Bergen County from their literal Hell. Suicide and terror common to those whom they commit crimes against and try to keep quiet about their corruption, terror and worst racism/aparthied crimes against humanity. New Jersey ...more

7 Cleveland, Ohio

Cleveland is the most miserable city to live in, after Detroit for obvious reasons. The weather is ridiculous, the sports are awful, the police are almost as bad as the rampant crime, the city is filled with homeless because the economy here has not recovered, which is also why there's so many boarded up businesses and homes. The only saving grace is it's cheap (comparatively) because no one wants to live in the mistake on the lake.

YouTube Search: "HASTILY MADE CLEVELAND TOURISM VIDEO" & "Hastily Made Cleveland Tourism Video: 2nd Attempt". Both videos summarise Cleveland very well.

Homeless, street gangs, crack cocaine, boarded up homes and closed factories dominate both Cleveland and East Cleveland.

At least we're not as rude or terrible as Boston or New York City!

8 Flint, Michigan

2 murderers and a hamster are running for mayor down there! The hamster might just win...

I heard there’s lead in the water, but I don’t know if they fixed the issue

I live in Michigan and I stay far away from Flint.

The crime and the drinking water crisis proves this city sucks.

9 Los Angeles, California

A mess of roads and concrete rumored to contain homes and businesses

Beautiful women. Best beaches in US. Warm, no snow or hurricanes. Making waves in job market with high pay. +++

No job opportunity (unless you like working at disney world) No time because of work (or lack thereof) for the beach. Women are not beautiful, they are average. High crime rate as well. AND THE TRAFFIC. - SoldierOfFortune

Every second there are people crossing the street

Too many cars chase in la

10 Newark, New Jersey

Highest crime rate, slummy, dangerous, ranked one of the worst 5 cities in the United States. Organized crime central in New Jersey including the 5 families.

Used to live near there. Driving in some neighborhoods looked like scenes of bombed cities in wwii films. And lots of gang activity.

I was there with several people whose company I enjoyed and a Brazillain and Mexican and while they pretended to be nice in that 'in' area I would be afraid to walk 1 block along at night, I had a very uneasy feeling like something bad was going to happen to the nice guy wishing good will towards all - like right idea wrong place.

Center of corruption, organized crime and terror in Northern New Jersey. With the FBI in flux or out of the picture there is nothing to stop the corruption. Hub and spoke model spreads crime and terror from Newark including malfeasant attorney generals, DYFS child abductions and apartheid schools, racketeering, extortion, human sex and child trafficking and murder. So corrupt they don't travel the thrid circuit courts to keep the people from catching up to them, these criminals travel direct from Newark to the County courthouses and state sponsored syndicates and corruption bringing only dread from the cultuire of corruption so deep none dare to stand up to them. Only worse could be the capital of corruption Trenton with nefarious and unconstitutional Governor Christopher Christie and worse Attorney General Christopher Porrino bringing atrocity and the greatest nightmare and decompensation to the vulnerable and victimized people of New Jersey.

The Newcomers

? Cherry Hill, New Jersey

Dangerous schools for decades. Hate groups of every kind turn on people and each other for religion, race, income disparity, ethnicity and being pro-American. Bad place.

Cherry Hill, hyper-segregated New Jersey schools including violent ADL, Andrea Dworkin after molested in movie theater at age 10 in Camden, New Jersey moved few miles to the suburbs of Cherry Hill still in Camden County, which she wrote "experienced as being kidnapped by aliens and taken to a penal colony", child torture coercion to keep people from telling about them, prima facie copied to Cuban Menendez family in nearby Princeton, Fort Dix terrorists lived and trained in Cherry Hill 2006-2007.

Communists, LGBT retaliation and severe racism especially against blacks and immigrants (Eastern) and non-racists is a disastrous problem for children and families in Cherry Hill starting with early public education on to Cherry Hill High School East. Families are afraid to speak out. Now ADL, with early terrorist leanings, is actively at Cherry Hill High School West with articles in the papers and Web.

JDL is the violent group listed by the FBI which appeared to have strong influence or presence in Cherry Hill on the East side. ADL is now active in Cherry Hill at CHHSW and officially advocates "a world in which no group or individual suffers from bias, discrimination or hate", a worthy future goal for New Jersey which is now fighting it's own Supreme Court justice Gary Stein who is leading the state lawsuit charging New Jersey as the most segregated state in America with the 'worst' segregated school system.

? Elsa, Texas

Less than half the residents of Elsa have High School diplomas (or equivalent), and the unemployment rate is 9.2%. Not to mention, it shares its name with a terrible movie character.

Violent crime, hot, on the border closer than Corpus Christie.

The Contenders

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

I have lived in NYC my whole life, and let me tell you something. This city used to be great. Then, it became so safe that the slightest incident of violence is considered a crime against humanity (although there are murders everyday). the people here (mainly non locals and al sharpton) complain about every little thing that happens in the city and labels it as racist. Many people come here from around the country, mainly coming from towns with 2,000 people, and they are complete hipsters. They thin the only thing to New York is manhattan, so they rent an apartment on 5th ave in manhattan along with their 17 roommates. Not that the locals don't have roommates, its that these no locals are living in expensive places a week after moving in, when some 5th generation New Yorkers who have worked their butts off their whole lives can't even buy these places, when they are the ones who ruined it. on top of that, these non locals mostly come from conservative states, but for some reason they ...more

I lived here for a long time and so glad I moved down south to Florida. New York sucks and is highly overrated. All the people there hate each other, no one has manners, and all the buildings look the same now because these Hipsters bought and knocked down the unique and detailed buildings that were once there, then turned them into generic looking high rise condo garbage. Not to mention it's full of trash, there are homeless people everywhere (regardless whether they are good or bad people), the rents are ridiculous, and everything is unaffordable. Also, there's Police involved shootings here constantly and everyone who runs this city is a greedy politician who only cares about money and attention to themselves. Absolutely terrible place to live. I really hate this city and so glad I left.

Look, New York City. You go to your local train station and enter Grand Central. You will go out through the doors and there it is! New York City! The place where you see these people walk around. Guys with NO shirts, women with crazy dresses in their bags, and people walking around in theses creepy costumes (like a Shrek costume) taking selfiess to little kids. You also see on some certain parts, there are shady places where buildings are dirty, and people never come in them or Come OUT. I heard LOTS of shows take place in NYC. Well, it has too much buildings and no place for a person to live, except really EXPENSIVE hotels. Make it take place in a state that MATTERS! Like Connecticut. NYC just sucks in ALL of the attention. Then, who needs Hollywood?! You also see a lot of men with zits walking around wearing jackets. And that is where the 911 event happened.
So there it is, the one and only New York City! Never go there.

New York women are so feminists has nothing nothing to offer to men not good place date women rent to expensive get to cold other states are are good

12 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Philadelphia is the largest city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the sixth-most populous city in the United States, with an estimated population of 1,567,872 and more than 6 million in the seventh-largest metropolitan statistical area, as of 2016. Philadelphia is the economic and cultural anchor ...read more.

Filthadelphia homes the Third Circuit Court of Appeals for NJ, PA, DE and VI which is one below SCOTUS the Supreme Court of the United States. They are the reason the people, children and families of the State of New Jersey and Delaware are treated so badly. Further all corporate civil actions and liable which are lawsuits including Title 18 Section '1983 Lawsuits' over Civil and Human Rights are Appealed to the 3rd Circuit which is the reason people are hurt by corporations who according to the Delaware Corporate Registration Pages are the 'Tiffany of Incorporations'.

There is a lot of history here. And that's it. It's been all downhill for the last 40-50 years. Corrupt city govt has caused the mass exodus of industry to the suburbs (see Valley Forge, KOP). Brotherly love is non-existent in the city of brotherly love. You are more likely to be kicked in the liver than be loved.

There are security guards in fast food restaurants, and gangs everywhere. This place is garbage.

And they call this the "City of Brotherly Love", but that name is so laughable when you look at all the crime. People get murdered every day here.

13 Baltimore, Maryland

Maryland DHS/CPS "Child Predatory Services" steal children from parents and grandparents who cry every night for their cruelly abused and tortured children the State of Maryland Corrupting Federal ASFA/Title IV D and E funding for $Billions to destroy the people and children and entire family lines of Maryland among the worst in the US. Demand it come to an end! This is near our Nation's Capital and the largest concealed Organized Crime and Criminal Enterprises violating Constitutional Rights Must Come To An End.

If you live on the East side you MIGHT survive but the town is so dangerous you probably wouldn't want to live there at all.

I was born here, The city is very huge, But when you go there for 10 minutes you wont come out alive.

Baltimore is a beautiful city of course it has dangerous parts but every city has dangerous areas. Maryland is an amazing state.

14 St. Louis, Missouri St. Louis is an independent city and inland port in the U.S. state of Missouri. It is situated along the western bank of the Mississippi River, which marks Missouri's border with Illinois.

Camden in Camden County, New Jersey had the highest murder rate in history well above St. Louis until the entire police force was fired and replaced immediately resulting in the murder rate falling by 2/3, learn. The New Jersey State police corruption in Bergen County used firing all police in Camden just prior to threaten people in Bergen County saying their family would be attacked and killed in Cherry Hill in Camden County to make them to afraid to say anything about police corruption and a literal violent New Jersey Police State. Still unresolved but human and constitutional rights groups are fighting for change. Anti-Semitic attacks primarily in New Jersey and New York where 6 million live are an example of the explicit State terror as made clear and in the open in the worst cities including Englewood and surrounding (local/county/state) police enforced double hyper-segregated communities led by Hackensack the Bergen County Capital. Bergen County has a history as the worst county ...more

The "deeper" downtown area of St. Louis is dangerous. When coming from a Cardinals game, I could see people digging through trash, walking weirdly as if they were drunk (which they probably most likely were), etc. Downtown St. Louis, in this area particularly, is definitely not safe. Plus the creepy, run down buildings add on to the setting of St. Louis. Makes me shiver every time I have to pass them.

Definitely not a safe place to live. Should be higher on this list.

How is this not higher it literally has the most murders.

15 Gary, Indiana

If the creepy abandoned buildings don't turn you away, the smell will.

Hole of the states

It's creepy there.

16 Miami, Florida Miami, officially the City of Miami, is the cultural, economic and financial center of South Florida. Miami is the seat of Miami-Dade County, the most populous county in Florida.

Overrun by Cubans who can't speak English and hate and deride Americans. WithTrump now they think most people who aren't from Mexico or Cuba should be in jail. My family that lives in Miami hate it there and say better not to visit due to the hostile environment - not a good place to retire. Airport is in a bad area use alternatives.

I live in Florida, and love it. However, I have been to Miami, and, on the outside, it looks impressive, but on the inside, its crowded, noisy, and full of crooks. Someone put a boot on my dads car, and he had to pay 90$ to get it off! The person who put it on said we were there for hours and left the plaza. What a liar. We just stopped for a bite to eat! I just wish the place had less thrives and was cleaner...

Well I don't see you guys complaining about the heat in California. Is it just because you guys are too stubborn to admit? By the way, no hate intended. ANd no hate back please

Cool to visit and that's about it

17 El Paso, Texas

I hate this city I live here. I want to go elsewhere but here for vacation. No good cars, no fun areas, no nice people

I went there last November for a week it was fun, there wasn't any problem.

El Paso is one of the safest places in the US, but it is across the river from one of the most dangerous places in the world. The biggest threat here is some one who thinks that being rude makes them a big man!

El Paso is dirty asf, and the people there are rude, would not visit there ever again.

18 Atlanta, Georgia Atlanta is the capital and most populous city in the U.S. state of Georgia. With an estimated 2017 population of 486,290, it is also the 38th most-populous city in the United States.

Weird people there, always being hit up for money, many criminals! Watch yourself, I had strangers trying to move in with me. Definitely a Moocher place!

What this is so awesome. The Georgia Aquarium and World of Coke I live here and bro it's awesome.

Super Stupid - 420,000 Population, 800,000,000 Million Stingy Bugs. The Distance Between Birmingham & Atlanta was 146 Miles. How Short is that? Pretty Damn Short, Midwest & Central Canada are better than Atlanta.

Atlanta is really nice

19 San Diego, California

San Diego sucks. Boooring and weird. From dislike to hate for anyone from outside. Make the mistake of thinking San Diego is the great and fun Southern California? Wrong. Nothing to do except drive north to Los Angeles. And get cheap bad drugs by driving to Tijuana in your low end 'TJ' car since it will get stripped. Some crap companies to watch out for with vicious and dangerous people, not the place to go for a new job since that would a big bad mistake. Try Silicon Valley or LA or San Francisco, maybe.

Unfortunately, I was born here and lived here until I was three years old. I then moved elsewhere and it is not too much better, but at least not as OVERRATED as this place. Like on T.V., this place is painted as a surfing beach paradise, but in real life it's a nightmare. Some neighborhoods have extremely high crime rates and violence. The people are shallow, immature, and mean-spirited. There are no indications that you are near military property, like this has to be the only city in the world where military bases are not secured and have barriers. Like I saw at least 3 military bases unmanned, it would be ridiculous if a tourist was arrested for trespassing not knowing this backwards city didn't have military bases with barriers. Also, the cost of living is ridiculous. The only nice houses are in the north county and north side of the city (La Jolla, Caramel Valley), everything else is under-sized, no A/C, and extremely overpriced. Dog owners are douchebags here too and let their ...more

Here's the problems: too sunny for me, pointless beaches that lure you in, pointless mountains, pointless deserts without water, too neutral, boring weather, and people that leave the toilet seat up.

Why is this even on the list? Ideal weather, much to do, and much less stressful then LA. San Diego'ss worst neighborhoods aren't even bad enough to be considered ghetto.

20 Oakland, California Oakland is the largest city and the county seat of Alameda County, California, United States. A major West Coast port city, Oakland is the largest city in the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area, the third largest city overall in the San Francisco Bay Area, the eighth most populated city in ...read more.

The corridor between Oakland and Richmond has some of the worst cases of rapists, poverty, and psychotically extreme politics in the whole country.

Oakland is nice in some parts. SOME.

I hate that Oakland gets so many sports teams. Can't they just take a boat to San Francisco.

Lol how is this place a city in the united states

21 Anchorage, Alaska

Why is Anchorage on this list? I live here and I love it here! The thing that disappoints me is when people always say that it is so cold. I know it can be cold here, but that's only for about five months in the winter. In the winter it snows A LOT, but this year for 2014, it still hasn't snowed yet (It's late November, and it usually starts snowing in early October! ). But for Spring, Summer, and Autumn, it is so beautiful. The grass turns bright green, the forests are the greenest ever, it it reaches up to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and that's pretty hot for an average temperature in this location (Fairbanks, which is also on this list, reaches up to 100 degrees! No lie there). Anchorage is no boring at all, we have two zoos, and our own local indoor waterpark, which I heard is one of the biggest indoor waterparks! We have malls just like in other states, we have fast food, restaurants, stores (like Costco and Walmart), we even have our own special supermarket: Fred Meyer!
Anchorage ...more

True that it can be chilly, at times, but that's what jackets were invented for.
What kind of an idiot said there is not much to do here?
Spectacular hiking, sightseeing, photography, fishing, hunting, kayaking, boating, sailing, bicycling, camping, backpacking, rock climbing, wildlife viewing, gold panning, anthropology, ice climbing, cross-country skiing, botany, dirt-bike riding, astronomy, geology, and just plain exploring the most amazing natural landscape on the planet.
If all you want to do is sit on your butt playing video games, what difference does it make where you are?

Seriously. Anchorage is a great place man. What has the lower 49 come to with the stereotypes that we have frigid weather all year. Summers in Anchorage have an average high of 76 degrees, and the winter temperatures are only a frigid -13 degrees, which is higher than Minneapolis! Anchorage also has tons of animal conservation centers, and the Alaska zoo, and tons of places to view moose and their babies! I also reccomend the Great North Brewing Company Valley of the Moon Park, and Bear Tooth Theatres. And if that's not enough, you can view the midnight sun. That's right, during the months of June and July, the sun never sets!

Not true I live here there is tons of stuff to do you can spot moose or bears!

22 Dora, Alabama

You shouldn’t visit a city with the same name as a lame cartoon character

I KNEW THIS WAS HERE!

23 Jackson, Mississippi

Wow, A city named after a racist president in the most racist state.

So racist and stupid. I live here and its hell. I want to leave and go live in California. nothing to do.

Basically a racist version of Detroit

A lot of crime and bad roads. so much ghetto around the city

24 Birmingham, Alabama

Most uneducated unworldly racist city I have been to. They look inwards not outwards.

Yeah those gangsters need to die! And gun criminals!

.It has become terrible in the last 5 years

Yeh its pretty bad damn gangsters

25 Washington, D.C.

Who ever said that it's controlled by republicans are only referring to the 10 people with power... The other 6 million (probably 7 million by tomorrow) are as liberal as it gets. Very rude people here that will stab anyone in the back to get power. The most southern city in the north meaning you wont be getting any of that southern hospitality here. If you have any regards to the well being of anyone but yourself then don't move here.

Ruled by Democrats who think they rule the world. Danger to anyone who likes Trump or anyone who would Drain The Swamp. Once he stops joining them.

Worst city every worse drivers and rudest people ever

Republicans and Democrats both suck in this place.
