I would not like to live in a city with more than 100,000 people in it again. No matter where it is. Too much crime and drugs.

Then you'll be disappointed to find out that crime and drugs also exist in small communities as well. Frequency range from negligible to significant.

Yep...in the big cities, the problem is with crack. In the small towns, the problem is with meth.

I have no interest in visiting Youngstown, OH; does this make me a bad person?

It's obvious that Austin has done a great job in marketing itself as the only place in Texas that's worthwhile.

Too bad it's not true. Though I find it a bit funny when people find that out the hard way... don't say I didn't tell you so! (I mean, if you go to NY would you visit Albany over NYC?)

^Keep it a secret! I like WV and I'm not the "rural" type. If no one's interested, and they think it's a terrible place, then the people in WV who like their peace and quiet benefit.

I'll go anywhere. Some places rank behind others, and some I'd only go to if someone else footed the bill. There really isn't anywhere I wouldn't go (except a radioactive or active war zone). There are places I've been that I don't want to go back to, but there are more places I've been that I'd like to see again. I love to travel... which is why I'd take the opportunity to go anywhere if it were given to me.
