Road tripping is always fun unless you end up in a crap city. Maybe a whoopsie vacation and you end up in crap town … hehehehehe …. I loved the stories Connie and I had when we did this originally it was fun to do again.

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What is the worst city you have ever visited and why?

  • Muncie Indiana. My best friend had a bullet hole in her bedroom window. Her “neighbors” were selling drugs out of the apartment doors & windows (we were told not to make eye contact with them). The whole town was dirty and run down. It was scary at night.
  • New Orleans. Went there for a convention. What a dump. Roaches in even the nicest hotel. Streets have to be hosed down every morning on Bourbon Street. Just gross. I would never go back.
  • Philadelphia. I went over the summer and I was so excited to see all the history. I saw garbage everywhere. People don't care about the city. Left razors on statues. I was so disappointed in people.
  • Newark, New Jersey. Ended up the ER at Beth Israel for 3 days. Cat scan, stress test, EKG, etc. $28000.00 bill. AND they never figured out what was wrong with me!
  • Indiana as a whole lol. I almost died in a car accident in Indianapolis. I'd rather not go back there if I can help it. Well, except Pawnee, Indiana -- I'd go there (even though it isn't real, in my mind it is lol #parksandrec)
  • I thought Memphis was absolutely filthy. Garbage everywhere. I will go back but they need to clean up the city.
  • Toss up between Detroit and Chicago...trying to navigate streets that I have absolutely NO business going down ...yet I have to because they are designated "truck route " just to get to where I'm supposed to make my delivery . AND then try n back into a dock with hardly any room for a semi...fun times
  • Probably Salt Lake City, Utah. There were so many homeless people and there were creepers at the hotel.
  • Tunica Mississippi. No public transportation, nothing to do and dirty
  • Los Angeles...dirty, smelling, smog, skid row, need I say more!!
  • Ybor City…was making a delivery and driving my boss’ Mercedes…got lost in the then bad part of Ybor and it was dark as heck!
  • Nashville....too many bums and shady characters downtown
  • Gary Indiana .. everything is condemned
  • Los Angeles. Dirty, smoggy and so many homeless people.
  • Jellico Tennessee. Not just for the lack of cleanliness but also very racially inappropriate. So disappointing these places exist
  • Lima Ohio, it was overrun with crickets
  • Wichita Kansas in July. Hot as hell and humid and we were the only house without a pool we visited. Just sat inside bored
  • West Lafayette Indiana.
  • Detroit.... just ew
  • Mineral Wells, WV. We were on our way to North Carolina and my youngest was sick. The cleanest motel we could find had an adult entertainment shop across the street. It was just dirty.
  • Fayetteville, NC. Transient community and just not nice.
  • Camden, New Jersey, the whole place smells like hot garbage. Our experience even entailed a crackhead looking into our windows when we had to stop for a light... good times
  • Tulsa Oklahoma! Creepy
  • Gary, Indiana. I was exploring that area back in 2004 for an afternoon with a friend of mine. Gosh that was such an awful place for so many reasons. Disgusting, no pride whatsoever in the city, so many shuttered businesses, burned-out buildings, and so on. I love to explore cities and always go into them with an open mind, and I can usually find something positive about these cities, but Gary was worse than I'd imagined.
  • Chicago and I lived in Indianapolis where a woman was killed and put into a chest and left by the dump at our apartment. Driving in Chicago gives me a heart attack.
  • Huntington, WV. Had to go for a wedding and there were lots of zombies walking around from drugs. I’ve lived near Gary, Ind my whole life and find it quaint - you just know to roll thru and go to Miller Beach.
  • Flint, Michigan
  • Atlantic City
  • Parts of chicago
  • Reno, NV just depressing
  • Sells Arizona
  • Detroit Michigan ....Just Dirty
  • Anywhere in Indiana
  • Oklahoma, I guess that's a state, but still awful
  • Gary, Indiana cause it stinks !
  • Rome, Italy because I was pooped on by a bird, puked on by a drunk guy and almost robbed by gypsies.
  • Anywhere in Ohio....for obvious reasons.
  • Cincinnati. Went there for a concert, the venue was 4 minutes away from the hotel. My mom dropped me off and got lost for almost the entire length of the concert. Whomever planned out that city,...I don't know what they were on but, it is horrible. I will NEVER go back, lol
  • Atlantic City. Soo gross, dirty, smelly. I will never go back!
  • Hands Down, Copper Harbor, MI. And only for one reason, Gas Prices. It’s family run, and they JACK THAT PRICE UP extremely for gas. So if you ever go to the UP and decide to check out the very top of Michigan GET GAS before your trek north! They out here putting Wall Street to shame in the revenue game!
  • Beloit WI. One wrong turn and I was where I should not have been. Stopped too long at a stop sign and a man came running up to my car aggressively yelling. I panicked, hit the gas so hard I peeled out, while trying to manually lock and roll windows on my 4 door Plymouth Neon. When my brain figured out I wasn't being car jacked I realized he was saying "What you want? What you need?" and was, in fact, thinking I was trying to buy drugs. I was 19, from a very very small farm town, and scared out of my mind. Those windows.... I swear I was cranking them with everything I had in me and it took 10yrs and 4 lives out of my 9.
  • Paris was the worst city EVERRRR! The "main attractions" were nice, but get a block out from the Eiffel Tower and the streets stink of garbage and are covered in bird
  • Tijuana. Spent all of 30 minutes there. I was looking around when a guy grabbed my arm and said he was taking me to his bar for a drink. I yelled no and high tailed it back to the gate to leave and almost got detained because I was in such a hurry trying to leave.
  • Gary, Indiana while on Amtrak. It looks like an apocalyptic horror scene. I closed my eyes till the end in disgust
  • Put-in-bay, OH. My husband and I went there years ago and it was a tourist trap, full of divorce people hitting on my husband and I and nothing but drunk people.
  • You need a tetanus shot just to pass through Gary, IN!
  • Anywhere in Ohio, because it’s the armpit of the nation.
