The United States is home to many of the world’s most beautiful and interesting cities. However, for every tourist utopia is a place that doesn’t have nearly as much to offer. There are many services that provide a variety of different indexes for measuring a city’s livability and what it offers to its visitors. Many of the worst cities in the United States suffer due to poor overall income, lack of education options, few cultural attractions, high crime rates, and limited entertainment choices.
