    It's not as bad as some other cities. Salt Lake City springs to mind. Most underrated big city in the US is Pittsburgh, though. Great place, especially in the fall. Cheap, nice people, great universities, remade downtown, some beautiful areas in the suburbs, huge sports town.

    I've also heard great things about Pittsburgh, which surprised me tbh. Assumed it was a bit of a Detroit-lite, in terms of post-industrial decay.

    Pittsburgh is a cool city, only been once so missed a lot. You mention SLC again and so must once again must mention that it is probably the best ski destination in the States

    What's up with Salt Lake City? I was only there for a day or two, and only saw the centre, but it seemed nice enough.

    I can imagine that the extended conurbation to the west and south haven't anything to recommend them though.

    Salt lake's the nearest big City to me, more than anything I think the Church influence is so over bearing that it kills off a lot of 'adult' fun. There's a great music scene with some good venues and I think because it's so stiff people don't realise the underground scene there. Real Salt Lake have a great stadium, miles of bike paths and did I mention the skiing?
    The west expansion is definately the worst area with a suprisingly large gang problem. The metro area is the bad part as it's probably 90 miles from Tremonton down to Spanish Fork, everything right off i15 and beware Ogden, rough as toast

    Pittsburgh is the beginning of the Midwest IMO. It's still close enough to the Northeast to be interesting but it's far enough away from Philly and NYC for the people to be really friendly. I always think of it as the best example of a big city whose people remind you of small town folk. It's the best of both worlds.

    Was driving on the freeway through Pittsburgh one day and it started raining heavily. At least, we thought it was raining until we put the wipers on and it made an unholy mess on the screen. Turned out it wasnt rain, it was a swarm of enormous flies. Didn't stop in the city after that ......

    Oh, and yes. Trump. What an ass hole.

    Have you moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo? If so, then yes, yes you do.

    Ahm , okay. Didn't see any of that as we were staying opposite the big convention centre, and were only there for a night before heading up to Yellowstone (breakfast Utah, lunch Idaho, dinner Montana!). Then we were back there for a night before leaving having been down in Moab.

    I don't feel any great urge to go looking for rough places - east London offers plenty if I did.
