Have you ever traveled to a city you've always heard good things about, only to be totally let down upon arrival?


According to this thread, many have, mostly because of people influenced by hype.

When a friend insists we travel to certain cities because we would "just love it," they're setting the bar pretty high.

And a city can also boast a rich history or an attraction that makes us curious enough to find out what makes it so appealing.

But, alas, when we finally reach the destination, it's never exactly what we thought it would be.

Curious to hear from strangers online, Redditor tshirtguy2000 asked:

"What city is overrated?"

These are not officially real cities but they do have a rotating population.

It's Always A Party There

"Party city."

"As a former slave associate at party city. I 100% agree."

Liability City

"Lego City. There always has to be someone falling into the river."

Lotsa Crime

"Cabot Cove, the murder capital of the world."

"Sure, the murders are all solved, but would you really want to live in a city with that much, easily solved, crime?"

Neighbor To Springfield

Shelbyville. Those f'kers steal trees from neighboring cities.

These were once considered destination cities but their popularity eventually took a nose dive.

Not Pair-A-Dice

"Atlantic City. Venture a few blocks off the boardwalk and it's incredibly depressing. Very clearly an area exploited by the big casinos while the locals have been driven to absolute poverty, while they still force a smile to work the shops that are required for the tourist traffic."

Lots Of Water

"Niagara Falls, Canada. I grew up there. Mayor pumps most of tax $ to casinos and tourism with flashy vegas-esque attractions."

Meh Beach

"Myrtle Beach. I'm not even saying that it has a good reputation, I'm just saying that any shred of positive thinking about it makes it overrated."

Where A Creek Is An Exciting Attraction

"Lamb's Grove, Iowa. It's not the paradise on earth that people always say it is. Don't get me wrong, it's got great Chinese food but the motel 6 is meh at best."

Impressions for these cities fell far below expectation.

Do-Bye

"Dubai. It's the clickbait of the world. 'We have the biggest/tallest/most expensive YOU WON'T BELIEVE when you see THIS...' It's hot as f*k, everything's a man-made tourist trap; labor exploitation and racism are rampant, and they try so hard to prove to the world how modern and Westernized they are. Really, it's just government propaganda."

Oh, Florida

"Miami. Horrible place filled with horrible people."

Truth be told, many cities can be overrated.

It just depends on a person's experience, or a resident's perspective about what it is about the location they live in that is nothing worth writing home about.

If I had to choose, I would say Las Vegas is overrated, but that's because there is nothing in Sin City that is of personal interest to me.

I may be severely judged for my opinion, but that is a gamble I'm willing to take.

People Break Down The One Activity They'll Never Try Again

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Redditor Croakied wanted to discuss the times we've all said... "once was enough!" They asked:

"What is one thing that you will NEVER do again?"

There is an age old question that has been getting more traction surrounding sex for partners the last decade or so.

And that is... "is just one enough?"

Were we really meant to only be with one person forever?

There are so many flavors to taste.

What if your partner wants more cookie dough with your strawberry?

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.

I grew up poor, and I remember the little things that made me smile when we just happened to have enough that week.

The little things that a truly rich person would not think twice about.

Ah, the luxury of it.

What spells luxury for you?

Redditor ConAir161057 wanted to compare notes about the things in life that feel like items only money can buy. They asked:
