It's a gritty, rundown industrial city with serious poverty, crime (gang), and drug issues.

It's hands down Killeen and Waco for Texas.

How is Las Vegas detrimental? Its like the only reason most people go to Nevada.

Anyway, many towns in east Texas give Texas a bad name. Places like Beaumont, Port Arthur, Vidor.. Yikes!

It's an old industrial, ethnic (Italian now more Hispanic) steel city. Used to be the "Steel Capital of the West". 50 years ago it was 2nd largest city in the state. Pueblo's population now is about the same as it was in the '60s. Up until recently it had been sliding further into poverty and losing prestige yearly. It is, per capita, the "gang capital" of the state. Many from Pueblo still refer to it as "Colorado's Second City". In actuality it Colorado's 9th largest.

Detroit definetly brings down Michigan's image. No matter how much "progress" some posters claim it's starting to make, in the real world most people throughout america still view it as a giant ghost town.

Well they should visit. Downtown Detroit is quite fun and has a lot going on for it.

They need to advertise it more, then. All the Pure Michigan ads show the rural and lakeside parts of the state, not really Detroit.

Detroit is not as bad as people say but it is still quite depressing parts of Detroit look like the Eastern Soviet Bloc after WW2. It is empty and run down just sad and depressing but the people in Detroit metro are pretty down to earth and hard working
