The Google tells me that's a Connecticut casino . It seems to be a standalone entity, so I don't know if I can oblige you on that one .

But if you were talking somewhere like Reno or Biloxi, then sure, why not?

We know it's no Vegas and we know it's dangerous outside the boardwalk area and sometimes even on it. But it's a fun place to go in the summer, whether you gamble or not.

I'm pretty sure some of the things I did this past weekend in New Orleans will also stay there, so yes I think the phrase can be used for many places.

Kudos to Vegas for patenting and marketing the slogan though LOL.

Why am I not surprised that a Philadelphian finds NYC overrated?

Overrated: I would put Phiily here because even though it's the second largest city on the east coast, there is nothing worth seeing in the city besides City Hall and an old bell. However, I doubt Philly is on anyone's mind so there's noway it can be overrated. My vote would have to go to Miami. It's not a bad city per say, but it's lack of walkability ruined the experience for me when visiting.

Underrated: Boston. An utterly charming city, that doesn't get enough credit. I don't think there exists a better neighborhood than Beacon Hill in the United States.

Then again, I'd like to see Florida try to usurp the power of the Federal government to enforce their state law over Federal agencies, etc. In the end, these sorts of laws are food for ravenous "patriots" & "real 'mericans" but are pretty useless in practicality.
As a note, I don't speak anything but English and have absolutely no problem using English everywhere. I also have no issue with others using a different language that works better for them.

That all said, I agree that Miami is underrated. Over the last several years it's become apparent to me that Miami-bashing is some sort of sport here on C-D. In fact, Miami-bashing is popular among many Miamians as well. That said, most Miamians stay and the flood of money and people from the places that bash us keep coming. In the end, there is no other city in the continental US that offers what Miami provides: namely year round warm weather, bigger city amenities & resources, an International culture, immediate access to two national parks, and a beach scene that offers everyone something that suits them .
Im not bashing Miami.I dont d=bash cities.In fact although I dont care for Miami,I NEVER have told any of the many international visitors I encounter in Atlanta in my line of business not to go there as it is a unique city.

That said Miami has some serious things that are lacking for a city its size.

For examole,Miami has an extremely high poverty rate.
It also has a very lower percentage of higeher educated adults.
Its economy is very service oriented.

Does not make it a bad place but in this day in age of high tech economy,Miami is a city of polar opposites of extreme wealth and extreme poverty.Not a good combination for upward mobility.

LOL reading comprehension, and I see you haven't been to Philly since 1994.

Socio Fairmont Park.theRodin Museum, Rittenhouse Square, the Main Line, Legislative Hall, are not worth seeing?
