Arlington, Texas...by far the lamest city in the US! No public transportation, limited sidewalks not pedestrian friendly at all; summer heat is unbearable; air quality? Half the time it feels like i cant catch my breath. On game night all the streets around the stadiums are barricaded, even residents cannot park on the streets in front of their homes (tax paying citizens), no downtown, this place blows! Heading back to the north ASAP.

You forgot to include Atlanta Georgia; Los Angeles California and the entire state of Texas. 80% of Americans are living in misery (Missouri). Americans size you up, then they haul you in to their misery trap. Worthless jobs, drugs. And "hey, can I steal your BMW."

i've never been to cleveland. but, while living and travelling throughout cali, i never saw anything like stockton in my entire life (i was only in detroit once 40 yrs ago). this was over 10 yrs ago. the place seemed like a ghost town. almost it's entire central business district was borded up. at the time there was a protest going on over 2 young boys being held incomunicato. i took a few photos and was promptly chased by the police. i had to run to my van and change shirts to keep from being arrested!!! my brother lives in chicago and i know it sucks. i have friends in lake county, ill, also ranked very bad. i was there 4 yrs ago and it was a miserable place, even in the summer!

I completely agree with this list. Cleveland is the biggest dump in this country. I've lived here for 33 years and the suffering never ends. I tried to leave this toilet 6 years ago and it just sucked me back in. Crime, corruption, and unemployment are high. We see the sun three days a year and every sports team blows. They should just level the whole city. We should then pack our bags and take our talents to south beach.

This is a ridiculous list. I do not live in Cleveland, but someday I hope to. I have visited several US cities in my life and Cleveland was my favorite one. Who cares if the sports there suck? There are plenty of other things to do, and its not a huge area but it has more to offer than several larger cities. I don't see why Chicago is listed at all. Its one of the most vibrant cities in the US.

I have to agree that cleveland ohio is the worst place to live! I use to live in cleveland ohio and the crime rate is very terrible, a lot of gangs, drugs, prostitution. and all the people in cleveland ohio don't know how to drive. the schools are terrible, the people here are rude and don't attempt to say hi to anyone.

This is offensive. Sure the economy and **** is bad but how the **** are we miserable when we have beaches, Disney World, and other places tourists can't stay out of. Miami , F.Y.I, is the place where tourism is mostly happening. So who ever wrote this article is a naive- stuck up loser, who should learn more about the place before talking trash about it. Now good day sir!

LOOK the BEST thing we can do as a country is create real jobs not run of the mill temp **** jobs.Nothing makes the normal person feel better then earning good money and then in turn hopefully they spend it on product to help stimulate the economy...WOW if I get this how come the BIG SHOTS in this country DO NOT!!!!! ITs that simple!!

How is Killadelphia not on this list?
Philthadelphia is dirty, rampaged with crime, and dangerous to all who visit.
Phatadelphians have no style, grace or manners, and newcomers cannot assimilate in the City of Unbrotherly Love. You are sized up, judged, and dismissed in less time than it takes to order a cheese steak.
Sad, but Philly has cancer and is dying. It was the capital of the US, but it has been all downhill ever since. Habitants of the city have a false sense of entitlement, city hall is corrupt (as proved by stealing the Barnes Foundation), and tourism is non-existent because friends hire friends in high positions.
I moved there to be close to my dad, but when he retired and moved, I moved right away.
Because Philly reminds me of a school on the 4th of July...NO CLASS!

Soldotna, Alaska is probably the worst town I've ever lived in. I've lived here for over 15 years now, and you'll notice how so many people are drunkards, druggies, racists, etc. Half the kids dress in goth rags and others are barely clothed. Businesses here are very unprofessional, people/families don't confront one another when they're wrong. This place needs a serious revival of Christ and fellowship.
Beyond that, the seasons are horrible: winter lasts from October to late April (that's 7 months!!) and it's very COLD (gas heat is especially high from Dec-Feb since it hovers around -15F average). It's very dirty here when the snow thaws out, and the spring cleaning stinks -- literally from all the dog crap thawing out from the ice. We have about 3 months of actual summer here, but in 2008 (I think), it was almost always raining the entire summer -- something I was NOT looking forward to. We also have the highest SUICIDE rate here in Soldotna.... I wonder why... There's a history of the native land being cursed, and demons and evil spirits float all over here... Lots of run down homes; you'll drive through a nice neighborhood and there will be a horribly maintained trailer park right in the middle of all these nice homes -- it's rediculous and it reduces home value. Lots of property with junk lying everywhere, people are notably sloppy.
Only if you're into fishing and hiking should you ever decide to move to Soldotna.... Kenai is even worse... and Nikiski, even worse than that!!
Sorry I'm so negative, but this place makes you seriously depressed... unless you love winter sports and don't mind the piercing cold whether. My wife is from Florida, and the first year -- she absolutely loved Soldotna, but it took 2 years to find her a decent job, and now she's (and I) want to move ASAP!!!

I've lived in Miami my entire life and hands down, there isn't any where else I'd rather live. And we haven't had a major Hurricane since Katrina and Wilma which was over five years ago. The weather here is almost always amazing. While more than half of the US was covered in complete snow, people here were hitting the beach. I love it.

I hate the city of Federal Way, Washington. I lived here for 3 years and i am so freaking tired of all the traffic lights. The traffic lights are posted every block and they last about 7 minutes. Also, they got traffic camras above the lights. I don't like anything about Federal Way, Wa. This city should be declared as the worst city in the northwest.

Miami is definitely a miserable city to live in. I have lived there for 20 years of my life and it sucks so bad. Whether it is the traffic commute, terrible crime, corruption, humidity, racism, hurricanes, drugs, weather, lack of seasons, the people, lousy schools and a pathetic transportation system. I am so glad that Miami is being exposed for such a miserable hellhole it is. Its funny how its nicknamed the "Magic city" because there certainly isn't anything magic about it. The best thing that could happen for Miami is for a huge hurricane to come and destroy the whole city.

Cleveland has been getting hit hard from all angles, but there are many people who are sticking it out. Nobody likes to see their city on the bottom of the "worst cities to live in" list. For a list of the best cities in Amercia try:

I love living in the Buffalo area!! The weather is beautiful in the summer and, despite popular belief, the winters are not that bad. We don't have hurricanes, tornados, wildfires, earthquakes or any other natural disasters that will distroy your home. Speaking of homes, the cost of living is fantastic. You can purchase an almost 3000 sq ft home with a yard for less than the cost of renting in a city like NYC or Boston. And commute times, there aren't any, everything's 20 mins away, including work, shopping, the beach in the summer and skiing in the winter.

I lived in Dayton Ohio for 7 years. The Air Force stationed me there from '86 to'93. I have to agree from living there, and traveling throughout the state, and living many other places to compare it to, the state of Ohio sucks big time. The whole state sucks and is a depressing place to be.

I do not live in Cleveland but I think it is a wonderful city. I like to visit, just not in January or February. Rock on Cleveland!

I was wondering the same thing too, what sports got to do with it? Are you kidding me! I'm looking for a Marketing job right now, maybe you people in Forbes should Hire me, I would do a better job than this crap of a research they did.

OK, I KNOW they're nuts now. They picked Memphis over HOUSTON as being a miserable city. Houston is absolute misery made over. And since hurricane Katrina, crime has skyrocketed by 50%. And I agree with the other poster...are you nuts thinking that sports teams should even play a role in whether it's a good city or not? There are a lot of cities that are gorgeous to live in and have no notable sports teams. All I can say at the end here is DO NOT MOVE TO HOUSTON unless you want to carry AND use a gun or taser at all times.

I Live In Seattle And Love It, Everything From Hiking Too Kayaking Is All Around Me..The People Are Great, I Must Admit The Winters Were Hard Too get Used Too At First, But If You Dress Right And Have Activities You Will Be Fine...The Summers Are Fantastic, I Was So Tired Of The Heat And Humidity Of My Town Outside Of Boston...Felt Like I Was Gonna Pass Out At Times...But Seattle Is Growing Much Too Fast Now, And With The Economy As It Is, The Condos And The Skyscrapers Have Emptied Out Fast...
