Why is it that my favorite cities (no matter what state) always fall on not so great list? Experts from USA TODAY say that this Missouri City is the worst to live in, but it just so happens to be one of my favorites.

I guess I can say that cause I don't live there I just visit, but according to USA Today St. Louis is the worst city to live in out of the 20 listed.

The average household makes just $38,664 a year, way below the US average. Crime is through the roof, with a violent crime rate of 1,927 per 100,000 people. Last year alone, 194 people were murdered in the city.

Not only does St. Louis fall on the "worst place to live list," it also landed on the FBI's Most Dangerous List. What's going on in St. Louis? We love traveling there all the time for shopping, shows, and Cardinals games, so maybe I do not see the bad and the ugly when I do visit, and I don't live there so I don't see the crime stuff. It makes me sad to see one of my favorite cities on lists like these.

You can only wish at some point that St. Louis will get off one of both of these lists, but we will have to wait and see what happens.
