Add Montreal in the mix, I know it is not in the US but i'd say it is one of the most overated city i ever seen......
Crappy roads (holes everywhere), everything is old, it's like that city stop moving forward 25 years ago, the weather (not everyone like having negatives temperatures from November to march & snow from november to april...), the bus are dirty, people make a big deal if you do not speak french AT HOME, the supposed outstanding nightlife is mostly cofee & drunk people drinking beer, the city is dead at 0h00 (some place are open but it is only some clubs in a small part of the town), the summer festivals are not that good as advertized, some show (just for laugh which is not free), some street performers, jazz festival.. well, nothing that in other city will be a big deal...
If they make a big deal out of thoses things it's simply because nothing happen during the year here... exept if u like skating & sliding on the mount royal...
Realy OVERATED that city

I'm still not understanding just how Atlanta has the most votes. My bet is that it's mostly just posters voting to upset the Georgians. That city is anything but overrated. But it's not underrated either. It recieves a just amount of praise and recognition.
