I don't really think Houston is over-rated, to me that would imply that it gets too much love. It tends to be one of the less respected cities on this site as far as I can tell.

Definitely Atlanta. Not surprised it has so many votes and is currently in the lead.

The same could be said of Austin, NYC, LA, Miami and several other "popular" cities.

I think Seattle is a pretty awful place to be a man in your 20s actually, unless you work in the IT industry. It's almost impossible to find a good date there due to the male-skewed sex ratio and it's extremely expensive to live there so you can't afford to go out much. IMO if you are going to live in Washington state you might as well live right in nature.

I agree. Houston gets too much hate to be overrated.

Well looking at all of its negative qualities as a big city, it's not really that surprising.

1. horrible infrastructure
2. too much sprawl
3. poor urban planning (ex. lack of zoning)
3. non-vibrant downtown
5. poor mass transit
6. mediocre local cuisine compared to other it's peers (NYC, Chicago, Los Angeles)
7. horrible architecture
8. mediocre education system
9. Usually ranks among the most obese cities in North America
