Every state has it, the ugliest city that no one wants to visit. However, one website claiming this Missouri city is ugly has me really questioning their pick.

Travel.aot put together a list of The Ugliest Cities in Every State and while I am sure they thought they had it right for Missouri, in my opinion, they got it so wrong. Being an expert on anything is a job that I don't think I will ever want. How does my opinion matter to an entire nation? So, when this Missouri city was named the ugliest I was glad it wasn't me who put this city on the list. So, what do the experts think?

You guessed it, St. Louis!

Why? The crime rate is bringing everything down in St. Louis, but there is so much to love about the city. In my opinion, I couldn't believe it. Yes, are there places in St. Louis that aren't the prettiest to look at sure? However, you have a city with the Best Zoo in America, Botanical Gardens that is nationally recognized, Forest Park which is beautiful to have a picnic in, and a thriving downtown where people are working hard to make it a better family-friendly attraction. So why is St. Louis on the list? Well according to travel.alot.com,

Unless you're a huge fan of the Cardinals or the giant Arch, St. Louis might not be the city for you--it's not the prettiest place in the world. It's a city with tons of history, but it's also, unfortunately, a city with tons of crime, which has led to some portions of the city turning into run-down dumps.

No matter your opinion whether you think St. Louis is pretty or not, it's always fun to visit and experience everything St. Louis has to offer. And yes, some places aren't the best, but just avoid those and go somewhere else.
