11. Atlanta, Georgia
Atlanta, Georgia is another city that many Americans deem overrated. A few reasons include heavy traffic making it difficult to commute and an overall backwards thinking mentality. Others complain about how spread out the city is and its increasing violence and crime rates.
10. Nashville, Tennessee
Nashville, Tennessee has become a popular tourist destination in recent years, but has it become overrated? Some Americans seem to think so! The influx in tourists has caused this city to become incredibly busy and crowded, especially with rowdy Bachelor and Bachelorette parties.
9. Boston, Massachusetts
Most Americans love their history. If you’re planning to visit Boston for that aspect, you’ll assuredly appreciate the city. It’s beautiful in that regard. For many, that’s kind of where it ends. Not only has it been viewed as one of the least friendly cities in the US, but it’s also one that has a massive superiority complex. A lot of this has to come from their cultural significance, as well as their perceived excellence of their sports teams.
8. San Francisco, California
Admittedly, there’s a lot to love about San Francisco. It’s a very good looking city, and there’s plenty to do. However, it makes this list because it’s definitely fit for certain types of people – those who really love to protest and those who have long been referred to as hipsters. That’s not a bad thing, but it does make for a city that has an air of pretentiousness. Couple that with some of the highest rents in the country, you have a city that will definitely make many overrated lists.
