The Worst City In Every State

Not really a city, but if we are going there then I offer up Ft Stockton

They are out west with a lot of cool shit around and the weather is better out there.  East Texas and Golden Triangle win this for Texas easy.

South Texas is full of shit holes, but you are at least close to great hunting and Mexico plus the Mexican food.  East Texas sucks.

In the mid 1990s my son actually spent spring break in a shitty Fort Stockton motel after his VW van engine blew about 70 miles out of town on I-10.

Yeah.  I have to say some city located in the armpit of Texas is probably the worst.

There was a decent burger joint in Ft. Stockton three decades ago, if I'm remembering rightly.

Meanwhile, if you've ever spent at least five minutes in Van Horn, you know true West Texas desperation. It's not big enough to really qualify for this discussion, but hell, if you're going to throw Ft. Stockton under the wagon wheels, you can't just let Van Horn slide.

Can confirm ND and Minnesota is very accurate

 

 

Edina is a bland soulless suburb, but there are considerably shittier places in Minnesota.  Austin, Red Lake Reservation, the Iron Range, etc.

 

 

They missed Iowa badly as well.  Cedar Rapids is actually pretty cool for a town it's size.  Waterloo, Ft. Dodge, Muscatine, Ottumwa, are all much shittier.

Bettendorf or Davenport, IA (the quad-cities area also includes the equally shitty Moline and Rock Island, IL)

See above for IL 

Williston, ND

Huron, SD

I’ve been to MN enough to know it’s not Edina

Cut Bank, MT (maybe it was Shelby...it was on the Rez)

You haven't been to Ottumwa, I take it.

Isn't Red Lake the town the Washington Post reporter called the worst city in America and ended up moving there?

No idea, but I think it's made that list before.

No idea.  I guess it was supposed to be pretty nice, so maybe not.  Of course this was the 30's and 40's, so things change.

Lots of East TX is quite pretty. Pine forests and rolling hills. National Forests that I assume are still open for hunting. Caddo Lake. But, definitely had my fill of being Behind the Pine Curtain.

If someone offered you a billion dollars, but you could never leave the city limits of Abilene for the rest of your life, would you take it?

Worst place I've ever been was Duncan, OK. It was 115 degrees, there were wasps the size of hummingbirds. I got a speeding ticket in a blind speed trap, that they literally looked me up 7-8 years later to pay with what must have been a 4x markup (had no intentions of ever stepping foot in that state again so didn't pay). Nowhere to eat other than Golden Corral. And my phone got killed by a faulty hotel cup on the nightstand and I had to drive to Wichita Falls to find a Best Buy and get a new phone. 

I've been to Flint, at least they have a Hooters.

My phone will not load your gif, and I can’t tell if you are serious, but say that someone from West Monroe is from Monroe, and watch the fireworks.  Serious business to folks from West Monroe.

Great question. The answer would be no for any city for me. Being able to own private jets and not travel would be torture...even more so than just being stuck in Abilene.

All of this talk about Roma and RGC has me reminiscing about a couple of trips down to Eagle Pass where I figured I was going to die. Around age 14. It later became the huffing capital of the nation. Here's photo of two carnies wrestling in downtown Eagle Pass.

At best eagle pass is NW valley, but back in the late 90s before 9/11 and cartels that was my favorite trip. Loved going down there and selling shit to the ford plant in nuevo Laredo, and basically hanging with customers who were and are friends today.

Had a good time with a aggy customer doing dumb shit like putting opposing stickers on bumpers and such. RIP Patrick...

It’s not the scenery that is the problem. It mostly has to do with economics, amenities and who lives there. When a place has the highest incidence of proudly flying the confederate battle flag, then that place most likely sucks because the people suck.

I know you qualified it as “at best”, but Eagle Pass is in no way part of the RGV. If that is the case, then San Antonio is in The Valley too. Laredo isn’t in The Valley.

Totally agree, it was part of my valley trip when I flew in to Harlingen and jumped in a rental for the week.

Correct.  As I’m sure you’ve assumed, there’s a bit of a racial divide between the two.

A billion dollars might not even get me to stay there for a year (well, maybe a year and a half). That city can do some serious damage to your soul, in a red hot minute. I'd rather be a poor anywhere else than be Abilene .01%.

No assumption necessary, having lived on the Monroe side, I assure you the whites there hate the blacks just as much
