I did a search and didn't see this topic. Could be interesting....
I was born and raised in Ft. Bragg CA. Small coastal town in Mendocino County about 3-1/2 north of the Golden Gate Bridge (you do know where that is, right?). I thought, at the time, it was horrible. Little did I know what life had before me.
Worst for me? It's a tie.
- Richmond CA. I worked there for about two years. One of the highest murder rates per capita for cities in California. I would dread driving home from night meetings from city hall through the 'hood to my condo on the Bay (but they paid me really, really good).
- North Idaho. Lived there for 2+ years. Hated it. Rednecks, racists, bigots, losers, meth heads, cold weather, icy roads, snow, and California transplants.
Where are the worst places you have lived?
