Dubious Distinction: Most Boring City

By Claudine Zap

Wed, July 01, 2009, 5:14 pm PDT

 

It's the time of year when thoughts turn to summer getaways. According to a TripAdvisor survey, travelers would rather go to New York, San Francisco, and Miami over, well, Cleveland. That metropolis was voted "most boring city" by vacationers who would prefer even the windy city of Chicago over a boring one.

 

Cleveland does have some notable aspects that could draw tourists: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is there. And now, so is basketball great Shaquille O'Neal, who recently joined the Cleveland Cavaliers.

 

Cleveland residents should take heart. The Midwestern locale could have been voted "dirtiest" (Detroit), "most annoying accent" (Boston), or "least healthy (Detroit again).

 

Travelers are a fickle bunch. New York City earned the title of "favorite city" but also won out in the category of "least friendly and helpful." Could vacationers be gluttons for punishment? Maybe after a few more doses of the rude Big Apple, boring won't sound so bad after all.

New York is friendly fuck now, when tourists are looking at the train map 5 New Yorkers are looking at them hoping they ask for directions. I bet half the people taking the survey havn't stepped foot in NYC for over 2 Decades. That's why it got voted friendliest and least friendly in the same survey.

 

Most underated IMO is Pittsburgh, best looking city for photo's, awesome sports teams and plenty of stuff to do and see.

My hometown is the least favorite, dirtiest, and least healthy. And we just traded Rasheed Wallace to the city with the most annoying accent!
