10 Worst Cities to Visit in the United States

ADVERTISEMENT

Travelers planning to visit the United States have many exciting destinations to choose from. However, for as many historical landmarks, amazing nightlife scenes, and striking landscapes there are to take in—oftentimes that also means major urban centers can have their share of crime, poverty, and traffic dangers, which have earned the following American cities a bad rap that are not really justified.

For example, New York City is celebrated by some tourists for its Big Apple hustle and bustle; while others steer clear due to fear of crime rates, smog, and traffic. You have to understand that in many cases these bad raps are due to outdated information or stories of unfortunate events that happened to a friend who visited the city.

While we urge you to travel with caution, let’s explore why these cities have a bad rap for being the ten worst cities in the United States…

1. Detroit, Michigan

Detroit probably has the worst reputation of any American city, and many tourists steer clear from the once formidable “Motor City” due to rumor of high crime rates (only surpassed by nearby Flint, Michigan) and abandoned downtown buildings. This once celebrated center of the American automobile industry did experience an influx of poverty, crime, and exodus of city residents from 2008 to 2010. However, the Detroit of today is experiencing a million dollar revitalization, with abandoned buildings undergoing commercial real estate developments, young couples, community gardens, and new businesses breathing new life into the area.
