Houston Tx was too humid. There should be a law against building big cities in humid areas. I just don't know why those Texans are proud. The smell was awful. The city also had an obvious division of rich and poor. My visit was in the mid 1980's. I don't know what the city is like currently. I have no desire to return.

Prichard, AL.
I was driving trough there and my friend wanted a soda from Mc Donalds, and then we relized that it was like a crimezone.
All the buildings were torn, and everybody were black, so we relized it was'nt so safe for us white peaplo to be there.
It was extremly poor neighborhoods, so it was really not a nice place.

Wow. 1980's? It's way different now (for the better). That was during the oil bust. Has cleaned up a lot, downtown has been revitalized, and trees planted everywhere. It's almost like night and day.
And Miami, New Orleans and others are just about as humid.

If you refuse to return after an impression from two decades ago, you'll be missing out.

Other cities HAVE to be MEMPHIS, Jackson, MS and one of my favorite cesspools besides Memphis, would have to be Montgomery, AL as well




Prichard is pretty awful ! we drove through there ! (fast) but Selma isn't too far behind. For a big city Memphis one of the worst as well

so many choices!

The worst city I've been to and had the unfortunate experiense of living in is San Diego. I can now say that I f***ing hate that city. Why? I have enough reasons to write a book about, which I actually did 3 years ago. Since then, I have enough for a sequel. I don't even live there anymore, but I'm still having problems with it since I own real estate property there, and you know what happened to the housing market which is why I couldn't sell. Recently I had problems with my renter not paying rent and trashing the place upon eviction. I feel like everybody in that whole city is bad and can't be trusted, since it's not the first person who screwed me over there.
