Eastern cities I would never live in:
Dallas, TX
Fort Worth, TX
and the numerous suburbs of D-FW
Austin, TX
New Orleans, LA
Atlanta, GA
Charlotte, NC
Miami, FL
St. Louis, MO
Cleveland, OH

Plus every city in the West including:
Los Angeles, CA
Las Vegas, NV
Phoenix, AZ
Denver, CO

The Wild Wild West is simply too dangerous. The East is much safer and more settled.

Also remember, the ugliness of a city is in it's people and attitude. Looks don't mean everything.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I live in a city that some have deemed ugly but I happen to find it beautiful-Baltimore. I love the history, the rows, the density. Sure it has it's funky parts but all cities have em. In terms of an ugly city for me, I am not sure I actually have any because I support planned communities and most cities were planned. I guess I am not to overjoyed when I travel through mile after mile of sprawl with parking lots and cars all over the place; and that can be anywhere outside of Anytown, USA.

Killeen,Tx - Its just miles and miles of sprawl and cookie-cutter houses! It has no character and everything is so damn spreadout! It has beautiful landscaping but dosen't take advantage of what it's got.

When I was out in San Diego this past summer, I was struck by how UGLY the houses were there, or at least those east of downtown both in the city and in the suburbs.

Dallas: Border-line desert-ish. Dull, generic, and too proud of itself.
Phoenix: One big suburb. No character. Desert.

Hmm. Have you ever been out west? How exactly is it dangerous? Because...it's not really "wild" any more. It's pretty much like the rest of the country, just a lot more beautiful.

Wow, somebody has been watching too many old 50's westerns. Last I knew and saw, the west was pretty laid back and very nice. I've seen plenty of cities in the West that would make a great place to raise a family and live.
