As far as US cities go, fabulous choice.
Hope to never travel back there.

    You can add a lot of central and south america to that as well.

    Disagree with Central America/South America. Central America maybe 10-15 years ago, yes.

    I've been to all of Central America sans Honduras and Belize and Venezuela and Columbia and never once felt unsafe. In fact some of the nicest most gracious ppl I have EVER met where in towns in interior El Salvador. Its really unfortunate that some outdated news coverage can ruins a whole countries reputation. Panama City is one of the safest cities in the world now.

    Re: 3 Cities You Never Want To Visit

    Belize is very safe, I have been a few times and never worried. Likely helps that they are technically an English protectorate. I loved Honduras as well, Isle De Roaton is absolutely beautiful if you want to venture to that small island.

    I agree central America has come a long way but I still habitually look over my shoulder quite often. Something about 'police' officers walking around in shorts, camo shirts and flip flops while toting AK-47's worries me.

    I know I am and I am okay with that. I have been to more foreign countries than most people ever will visit and ave never had a problem, quite the opposite actually. Before I go I actually try and take the time to learn the culture and some of the language so I can BS with locals and I think the recognize and appreciate that.

    Ok, I mean I know St. Louis is lame as shit an all, but I highly doubt it is worth of 'Top 3 places you would never want to visit'

    Grew up 90 minutes from STL and have probably spend hundreds of days there.... at least you can stay busy with good food and beer. Sure Cardinals fans are some of the dumbest on the planet, the Rams suck, and everything else about the city sucks.

    But when you grow up in the middle of Illinois that's where you go to see your shows, and boy have I seen some amazing shows at the Pageant.

    Hell the Pageant alone is enough to keep STL off this list.

    Re: 3 Cities You Never Want To Visit

    OK - I did have one issue in Quebec city when some fucking jerk cashier wouldn't ring up my coffee because I was American and spoke extremely limited french. I KNOW the bastard spoke english so he was just being a dick so after he rang up 4 people who came in after me I dumped the whole cup on his counter and told him exactly what I thought of him and his lack of manners. Then he miraculously learned english and threatened to call the police on me - to which I gave him another rude 4 letter reply.

    I get really annoyed about ignorance down there, they are awesome people in those countries and one of the most beautiful under-looked parts of the world

    Trust me, it depends on the country. I have been to most of them. In fact I loved Venezuela as much as any country in that region before the lunatics took power!

    Honestly, that was an isolated incident. The people were largely very kind to me. I liked the city a lot, that one jerk just really pissed me off.

    France was the only country in Europe where people didn't want to try and help a brother out who couldn't speak French.

    It is funny, I have been to dozens of countries and the only issues I ever had that pissed me off was that guy and having a couple dozen automatic weapons pointed at me in Haiti - clearly in that case there was nothing I could do or say to announce my annoyance.

    I was just traveling the caribbean and wanted to see the place. I took a small boat from the Dominican Republic and was greeted by savage looking dudes armed to the teeth. I spend exactly 5 minutes in the country having my documents checked and then got on a different boat back to the DR and plopped my butt at the bar and had some drinks after that hellhole.

    Wrigley and Fenway are about the only real stadiums left that have any history. The rest are corporate monstrosities.

    As for pizza, real pizza is thin crust, slightly burned without too much sauce or grease.
