I been to Jacksonville, FL and damn, that place is boring from border to border! I can't believe it is Florida's biggest city! That's what made it very unimpressive to me. No good architecture to make up for it's high crime, not so great scenery to make up for its terrible food, and no culture to make up for its lame history.. **farts with mouth showing thumbs down**

22 pages over the course of 2 years...........I am guessing every major city has been listed at least twice by someone who has never been to that city.

I only have a few on my list so far. Most cities I like for at least one thing or another..except the following..

-Detroit. Absolutely horrible. I've been there a few times (not necessarily by choice) and hated every second of it.
-Las Vegas. I definitely think it's cool to visit, but the overall city itself is just horrible.
-Oklahoma City.
-Trenton New Jersey.

Knoxville, TN
I-40 road construction that has not stopped once since 1980. They actually closed I-40 for one year and will not reopen it till later this year around April or June which is hysterical considering its a hub for all traffic flowing in from NC, KY and north and south bound TN.
When the World's Fair was being planned for its debut in 1982 the city government knew it was going to be designed to be a self contained site but kept it a secret so the locals blew millions on building very basic concrete block motels to house the 11 million visitors it brought into the area and sat there vacant. Many other businesses opened too that failed during the Worlds Fair and these neighborhoods have sat there in decay for the 27 years since then.

Milwaukee- nice lakefront but downtown looked dead
Toledo- The wholetown looks like an old warehouse
St. Louis
Charlotte- Very clean, but most of people acted like introverts. I haven't been there in a while- I hear things have changed

Davenport, Iowa

I didn't go there expecting much & left knowing exactly why I didn't.

20 years ago I drove through Davenport and wasn't too impressed. A while later I actually wound up living there for a couple of years. I miss some aspects of living in the QC but I'm happier living in a green wooded hilly/mountainous area.

I was never too impressed with Kansas City or St. Louis but it has been 15 years since I was in KC and maybe 7 since I was in STL so that might not be fair. I remember going out with some work conferees in the artsy fixed-up bricky neighborhood just north of downtown STL, and when one of them said "There's twice as much going on in Syracuse as here," I had to agree. The light rail in STL is a strong point, I didn't have to rent a car.

Land wise, Jacksonville is bigger than Miami.
