Because of the extremely vague, general explanation. Anyone could say the same thing about any city. It's the type of remark we see time and time again on city-data from trolls. None of us can "disprove" most of the opinions on this forum, but it's not hard to get an idea of who is lying or exaggerating for effect. There's a tone set in the original post (hell, the title of the thread) by claiming certain major cities are "overrated." Usually that's how these threads get negative quickly.

Really? I mean, I have friends who grew up there, and they're all like, why would anyone purposely go to Salem...

Sounds creepy, because I automatically think of Salem Massachusetts.

Just curious, but what did you like about Buffalo? It has some cool neighborhoods, the naval park and is close to Niagara Falls, but I'm interested see what the answer would be.

I personally love New York City, but I've never thought of it as the best city in the United States of America. I give it an 8.5/10 (I prefer London which is similar).
Than what do you consider the best city in the US? I think it's the best city in the world let alone the US.

New Orleans underrated? Certainly not. The place is always packed with tourists, and it is one of my favourites too.

That's actually a tough call. I don't know, I'd say vacation wise that it might be Las Vegas (I know that this one is already praised a bunch) and possibly Orlando, Florida, although the killer bees do occasionally ruin my vacations in Las Vegas due to phobia.

For vacation, NYC is still no 1 for me. I live about as far away as you can get to NYC (well I did, Perth, Australia) yet it has always been THE city I dreamed of visiting most.

Vegas was cool to see for 2 days, but that was enough. A big theme park, that's about it. After that I tired of it (one day I spent walking down the strip in 41C (106F) weather visiting almost every casino on the strip. 10 days in NYC was simply not long enough for me.

Yes, but Salem, Mass is actually really fun. Salem, Oregon not so much. It's an ordinary and vanillas state capital and workaday kind of city, not even the state house is that impressive. In that area you will Silver Falls state park which has an impressive collection of waterfalls, the Willamette Valley wineries, and the coast is nearby. As for the city of Salem itself, nothing really redeeming about it. There are definitely better places in Oregon to spend time.
