Hey everyone, I figured it out. There is a typo. It was supposed to say WORST CITIES TO LIVE IN. But accidentally they wrote "best". Stupid autocorrect.

This list makes WAY MORE SENSE now that I know they meant to list the WORST cities. Because most of the cities on this list, like Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis (really??), Atlanta, etc. are the worst cities in the United States that you would ever want to live in.

If you like massive crime (DC, Atlanta, and others), miserable weather (Seattle, Minneapolis, and Portland have the most miserable dreary weather in the entire world, not just USA), low class, antisocial, loser hipster type, and trashy, miserable people, then this list is perfect for you! Please, go to these cities and stay out of our good cities!

You know it's a bad list when the first thing being rated is number of BARS, of all things. You know, those place that low class, trashy sluts and guy-whores go to get laid and have meaningless sex and spread STDs.

Why does everybody on here have far more dislikes than likes on all of their comments?

How does Atlanta have a high crime rate? You never hear anything up north here about people getting shot or killed in Atlanta. I thought it might be a nice place to live until I read the part about the crime rate...

I like the sound of Madison. I've been there 3-4 times on road trips down I-94. I think the only thing that Madison is missing in a pro hockey or football team.

Who is the second pro sports team in Columbus? I have the Blue Jackets, who else is there?

Some of these cities crack me up. New Orleans? A nice place to visit, but only flaming liberals would want to live there.  DC? Yeah, I guess it's great if you love crime and criminals, but most people who work in DC choose to live elsewhere. Wonder why? New  York is an awesome city if you have plenty of money and don't mind paying for taxis or taking the subway.

I am surprised Chicago isn't on this list. The winter weather can get nasty and the taxes are brutal, but Chi has a great nightlife and that seems to be one of the major considerations of this listmaker.


I LOVE Denver and agree that in just about every way this is a rockin place to live. I have never not once been sorry that I moved here from California 8 years ago. The nightlife is rich, the food is good and this state doesn't clean your wallet out at tax time. People here are actually friendly, though that has changed a bit for the worst since I first moved here. Denver is a well-kept secret. Most people think it's really coooolllld here and they couldn't be more wrong. It gets just cold enough to make it pleasant to light a fire and drink hot cocoa, but only rarely do we get really nasty winters. There are jobs here too, and the pay is pretty good.

San Diego beats San Francisco simply because it is America's Finest City and I can say that because I am a Native Californian.
Number 2 on you if you think Seattle should have that spot. Who wants to walk around with a cloud constantly hanging over your head? You'd have to be seriously stoned to tolerate that much rain. It is one of the most depressing cities with a high suicide rate. I don't see how smoking a depressant will improve that sad statistic. MS, Starbucks, & Boeing only employs a certain amount of people. Good skiing though and it is very beautiful when it rarely is Sunny. I lived there a bit, so I can say this.
Austin was good to me back when it was much more affordable (90s-2005). People are very eclectic and basically cool, but very cliquish. If you aren't from TX & especially from CA, they will crap on you with a bad attitude. I had fun living there for cheap & working for Dell & other tech companies, but after experiencing the night life on small 6th street a few times, there is really nothing else to do their. SxSW was funner back in the day when it wasn't so overrated and should be somewhere rated lower than San Diego, for sure dude. Surf or Die!
I visited Denver, Portland, & New Orleans and I had fun & think these cities are great to visit.
Although Denver & Portland would tie for me to even remotely think of relocating, I think this article got it right in the order of these 3 cities except Austin should be behind them and San Diego should be first.
I can't say anything about the other cities good or bad because I haven't been there, but I have NO DESIRE to visit NYC.

They obviously haven't been to Albuquerque, NM. Has the highest ration of health clubs per capita of any US city. Great SW cuisine and a very diverse and outgoing population. No major factories that pollute. Skiing, some of the most beautiful and easy to access golf courses in the SW are nearby.
Climate is the closer though. When we went to visit our daughter and son-in-law last year. My wife's "Kentucky", bronchitis was virtually gone in a few days. High desert climate, there are a couple of casinos, owned by Native Americans on pueblo land. Some of the old route66 stuff is still around. It is out of the eyes of mainstream America. not someplace you wold necessarily "go See" on a trip. It truly is a diamond in the desert. Nice enough the wife and I thinking of going there for at least a few weeks every year after I retire a year or so from now. I forgot to mention hot air balloons. Largest gathering the first week of Oct in the world. Every company with a balloon used for advertising send their team there for over a week in Oct. each year. Amazing fun. If it does get too hot. just drive up to the look out on Sandia peak. Albuquerque is at about 550' ASL. The top of the peak in almost 11000" ASL.  It snowed 18" on the peak a few days after we arrived.

Where's any city in New Jersey?  I have lived up and down the state and it covers farms, city living, great schools, incomes both high and low, and the people are the nicest.

Chicago is always missing from this list. I smell a lot of East Coast Cooking on this. It's a bogus and arbitrary article with no relevance. Find some actual stories to report on and leave these "opinions" in the toilet where they belong!!

Its wonderful to see one of these stupid articles literally every single week.

Who is the idiot who wrote this article?!  They obviously don't live in DC.  The school system in DC are one of the worst in the nation.  The school system has one of the lowest percentage of graduates in the US.  Crime rate in DC is one of the highest in the nation.  Crime rate is so high the mayor has been trying to control it for the last 3 years with very little success.  Corruption of politicians in DC is more common than in any where else in the US.  Homeless people are in every corner, always asking you for something.  Pedestrians don't use common sense, they are a bunch of idiots.  They jump in front of cars thinking they are super man.  The District of Columbia is for visiting only!!!!!  I don't recommend it for living or raising a family.  Who ever wrote this article has not done due diligence or research. Take it from me.  I used to live in DC, worked in DC and moved to VA.  The standard of living in VA is much better than that of DC and within minutes away.  Everything from smarter pedestrians to zero homeless individuals in every corner.  There are less roaches and rats as well.

Yeah, Seattle! 

Beautiful city; pot is legal and art abounds.

Educated residents, liberal politics and incredible food.

Very nice, Seattle. Oh how I love ya!

Dec 22, 2012 6:37PM
Meant I meant you will find it has the lowest education levels in the public schools in the US.
Dec 22, 2012 6:34PM
DC and education?  Take a poll and see how many politicians in DC send their kids to public school and the number will not top ZERO.  I don't disagree about the opportunities for fun but unless you're talking about college education, don't expect to find an education level that is the absolute lowest int he nation.

Atlanta?   The traffic is a nightmare.    Who could afford to live in either NYC or SF?    Also, nitwit, Maui is an Island and not a city.   Dallas and San Antonio?  No thanks.  Right sunshine at about 110 for 4 months.   Seattle, Portland, San Diego, Boston, Austin, Denver you bet.   Is it true that Austin wants to secede from Texas?
