The Best Cities in America

Clean air, things to do, places to see, people to meet. The best cities in America combine a sense of original identity with beauty, vistas, friendly and safe environments, and good times. For the main part, these are not industrial cities, but whether new or relatively old, these cities have character and ambiance which attracts people from all over the world. This could range from the sheer grand beauty of Charleston and Savannah to the offbeat, unique cultural highlights of New Orleans and Austin, to the iconic views of San Francisco to the sheer number and quality of coffee shops in Seattle – not to mention being the home of Starbucks, Frasier and Nirvana. These cities, combined, have something for everyone.

1. Charleston, South Carolina
2. New Orleans, Louisiana
3. Savannah, Georgia
4. Santa Fe, New Mexico
5. Nashville, Tennessee
6. San Francisco, California
7. Austin, Texas
8. Asheville, North Carolina

The Best and Worst Cities

Worst Cities to Visit in The United States

There are a lot of contenders here for the worst and most dangerous cities in America, but when looking for a terrible city to visit, you need to consider things such as vandalism, abandonment, lack of amenities or entertainment, crime levels, general decay, pollution, and (sometimes) weather.

These cities really have to have very little going for them, but just remember, it is all subjective and if you can prove one wrong, go for it.

10. New Haven, Connecticut
9. Birmingham, Alabama
8. Oakland, California
7. Stockton, California
6. Memphis, Tennessee
5. Camden, New Jersey
4. Cleveland, Ohio
3. Reno, Nevada
2. St. Louis, Missouri
1. Detroit, Michigan

I personally believe every place and city and town in the world has something to offer everyone. Sometimes it simply helps to be aware of what the less likely beautiful cities can be enjoyed as well.
