3 Cities You Never Want To Visit

the Sochi news has sparked a debate at the office... what are 3 cities you never want to visit?




Mine were:


Detroit
Beirut
Dhaka


maybe not in that order.



in the interest of completeness, others in the office mentioned were Calcutta, Newark, Damascus, Mogadishu, Sochi, and Cairo.

    in the US:
    Detroit (been 2x, got robbed 1x)
    St Louis (been 2x, got robbed 1x)
    Baltimore (only driven through, hope to never actually stop there)

    outside the US:
    pick three cities in the middle east. i'm way too white to be safe over there.
    also, Mexico City. my dad went a bunch on business and told me it was scarier than Vietnam because he didn't have his gun.

    Colombus, OH - Really?

    I'd think, if there was a city in OH you didn't want to go to, it'd be Youngstown.

    Re: 3 Cities You Never Want To Visit

    Chicago? Chicago is nowhere near as dangerous as the media portrays it. Chicago has about 3 really bad neighborhoods that are nowhere near any sort of tourist attraction. Chicago is a relatively safe city all the bad stuff just happens in certain locations that you would never go to.

    St Louis.....sucks.
    Gary, Indiana.....disgusting.
    Detroit.....awful.

    Doesn't get much worse than those 3.

    There aren't a ton of cities outside of the US I'd really want to visit. I've never understood why any American would want to travel into a region of the world where we're generally hated. Except France of course but those guys are pussies.
