“Springfield. All of them. But especially in Illinois. Nothing but a trailer park with a capitol building. Lincoln is turning in his grave.”

“Raleigh. Living there’s pretty boring. It would be even more boring if anyone came as a tourist. It’s very much a city where people live and work.”

“Phoenix, Arizona. There’s nothing to see or do. As far as the eye can see, sprawling housing developments and failing strip malls. There’s no culture, theme parks, or reason to go.”

“Hollywood is just one big toilet. I tried telling my sister not to get excited about the stars on the ground and to get used to the smell. She didn’t believe me, but now she does.”

“San Jose is in the top 10 for the population in the country, and as a Bay Area resident, I’d never even consider sending a tourist anywhere near there.”

“Denver. It’s gross and flat, and it’s just hot or freezing. Yuck. No thanks. But Colorado Springs is super nice. West Texas and Oklahoma, as a whole, are unfortunate places. 

Anywhere in the desert except Santa Fe. Albuquerque, Phoenix, Tucson, yuck. Las Vegas is a retail hell. I used to like it, but now, no. Skip it unless you’re there for a show. 

Most cities in the California Central Valley. Most cities in the Deep South and, for me, the unpopular opinion of all of Florida that isn’t Miami.”
