When I think about an overrated city, I think of a city that is talked possitively about constantly (by people NOT from that city) but doesn't quite match up to the hype. I don't really see many people praising Atlanta, so I don't find it to be overrated at all. I think it's rated properly.

New York that's alotta hate man I know its not everything to everybody and this is subjective but it comes closer to its hype imo then probably any other large city in the states imo if for no other reason then its size and what it offers in relation to its size........it is overpriced though I have no problem going in on its flaws which they are quite a few.

Default microchip planet surely

As a non US person which city is Silicon Valley in? Seattle?

Anyway, Silicon Valley is the most overrated US city. Loads of geeky, quasi-autistic nerds who come up with either [1] electronic junk or [2] new ways to spy on you to sell Google Adwords.

Just a soul-deprived planet of robots. Look at Mark Zuckerberg. It's a cyborg on AI.

Silicon Valley is a somewhat vague term. It could be specifically San Jose, CA, San Jose and the surrounding valley, or the southern part of the San Francisco Bay area.

I'm not sure it is fair to call a city overrated when you can't even identify what state it is in.

I can't tell if this post is a joke or serious. Silicon Valley is a term for an area that encompasses both San Jose and San Francisco and their surrounding areas. You don't have to be from the US to know this in the least bit.
