So, so bitter...

lol, besides once again telling people that their "opinions" are wrong, do you actually have anything to contribute? I mean, you're just so obnoxiously annoying.

You didn't proffer an opinion, you just basically dismissed a place you aren't interested in. So pot, meet kettle.

Also, unless one is into history alot will choose to overlook it even if it is one of the cities main draws. I know many who have not gone to Fort Sumter when visiting Charleston, I have but it's not their things nor are they interested. Unless it's a simple nearby trip, I know very few that would go out of their way to go to Winston-Salem thus imo not being either overrated/underrated. There clearly isn't that much of a draw to the city or tourism #'s would be much higher.
Oh I know the masses would generally be just fine limiting themselves to eating at the same chain restaurants, shopping at the same chain retailers, etc. But since we're discussing it here on C-D, I'm speaking from the perspective of those who are more interested in these types of things.

Also, I think cities/states in general are rated appropriately from the get go. Alot of this stems from people's perceptions anyways and with the internet there is very little "hidden treasures" about a location in the US that hasn't been uncovered, it's just a matter of it being enough of an interest or unique enough to gain the interest of a larger sum of people.
This is a most subjective exercise as there are various ways of determining if a place is "rated appropriately" or not so it makes for an interesting discussion. And even with the internet, there are still a lot of interesting places that aren't widely known and a big reason for this is America's size; this country is huge with all kinds of places scattered about. A lot of people won't hear much of anything about some really cool places that are all the way on the other side of the country.

If that's the audience then I'd agree with you.

That's the thing though... if there was interest in general people would seek it out but due to lack of interest there is minimal discovery.

Not necessarily. Think of cities that revitalized or grew their downtowns over time into true destinations and are often noted for such. It can take some time for the word to get out about such places.

True but it doesn't happen overnight.
