Las Vegas- enough said. Tourists forget there is more to the city than just the Strip

merighthere :  We live outside of Tampa, FL. 

I’m not entirely sure what the stereotypes of Tampa specifically are, but there are certainly a lot of Florida stereotypes. Crazy people – we got ’em. Tons of old people – yep. Bad drivers – yes, but I think what makes driving the most frustrating is that there is such a mix of different driving styles because people are from all over the place. A good amount of the people you meet will be from somewhere else, including myself.

Everything you hear about Portland, OR is true.

I am originally from Salinas, CA (Salad Bowl of the world) and I would say most stereotypes are true.

“It’s a gang infested city and all they do is kill each other” Sad but true..

merighthere :  D.C. – everyone is self-obsessed, the first thing people ask is “What do you do?”, politics are everything… all true.

merighthere :  Amsterdam. People think it’s a city of sin, of no morals, of fallen people.

I love how John Green said: “Some tourists think Amsterdam is a city of sin, but in truth it is a city of freedom. And in freedom, most people find sin.”

It’s a place of amazing freedoms. I am so happy to be living here.

merighthere :  I live in the Twin Cities and I think Minneapolis is the more famous “twin”. Minneapolis does seem to have more of a downtown “scene” than St Paul, but I really love St P. It’s getting more restaurants and downtown rooftop bars lately. Cool stuff! I actually prefer that St P seems to be more blue collar and laid back.

I also live in the SF Bay Area and SF and Oakland are “rivals”. I don’t know much about Oakland, but it WAS the homicide capital of the US for a while. SF just seems to have so much more going for it, but like I said, I really don’t know Oakland.

Boston – Literally no one I know or work with has a Boston accent. Also, no one says “pissah”, just typing that gives me the chills.

We are full of “Massholes” tho but I love it.

 Cleveland- Everyone thinks it is poor, dirty and there is nothing to do here.  They couldn’t be more wrong.  Downtown is beautiful, clean and just as safe as any other large city.

St. Louis is just as murdery as the stereotypes say. But for some reason I like it here

merighthere :  what do you want to do? Red Rock? Fremont? Lake Mead? Valley of Fire and Grand Canyon are both a few hours away, that would be more for vacation than bachelorette
