I know it's a Contraversial Selection me putting Miami,fl on the poll...but i'll let you know the only reason why i put it up there is because it's probably a city where you would feel the most out of place and awkward because it's very diverse....not to seem racist but you feel like your in a different country when your there. you know... so i dunno...just how i felt about the place...lol..

Well... Boise seems like a crappy town... and driving through it was very bland. I don't know though, isn't it still close to scenery? The airport was no fun but what airport is? I really don't know what to choose. Out of the places i've been to (or through) I'd probably say Topeka, KS honestly.

I had to live in Yuma, AZ back in the 80's for a year and wanted out so bad!!!! We went to the "watering hole" for fun and besides that, there wasn't much to the place. It was even smaller back then so just imagine the horror.

Bakersfield is pretty bland in my opinion, but it isn't that far from Los Angeles. Yuma was a lot more in the middle of nowhere.
