i have never had any interest in going to say, Cleveland or Detroit. but that could be they need a more proactive chamber of commerce.
The chamber of commerce already fled.
Weird fact about the Detroit area:
Buildings on every block are vacant. But... somehow... the traffic is as brutal as it ever has been! Where in the world can so many people be driving too?!?
I would like to think that those of us who are still here would have the benefit of less traffic.
Can't think of a place I wouldn't travel. With the exception of any place my mother may already be.
South Africa and Colombia - they've got the two highest murder rates in the world!
Acutally Colombia has many different levels of safety. Some parts are No Go for sure but others are much safer than other parts of South America - Brazil in particular can get a little hairy in places.
When I was last over there I spent heaps of time in Colombia but gave Venezuela a wide birth due to the political instability at the time - there was a good chance the whole place was about to fall apart.
You need to choose the right time and you can visit nearly anywhere
I've just published my first hub out of 6 about my trip to Venezuela! It was amazing and I was surprised about how safe it was. I wasn't in Caracas though (for the most part). It's just like anywhere else, some parts are safe and other parts aren't. And I was there just as they declared war on Columbia!
I probably wounldn't want to travel in Iran right now or other places that are experiencing conflict.
Oh and I wouldn't go to a place that doesn't have chocolate.
Antartica...I mean once you leave the coast line...What is there actually to see?
This will seem (be) small-minded, short-sighted, and unfair of me; but I really wouldn't want to go anywhere that wasn't in the US, Canada, the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Greece, or Scandinavia. I've even ruled out islands known for their beaches because I don't like (for no real reason) islands (I suppose it has to do with hurricanes, big bugs, and no way to leave on foot if necessary ).
Actually, anywhere that has bugs bigger than cats (I bet Texas has some like that)
Alaska has mosquitos as big as birds, but it was still a fun place to be.
Don't strike Texas off of your list UW! I haven't seen any giant bugs compared to other places, though they do say everything's bigger in Texas. Here in San Antonio, we're headed into about 5 months of marvelously mild weather. Very little need of heat or AC.
Nigeria holds little appeal and I hear the food is not up to much. I think there are some Nigerians on hubpages though so maybe someone will defend their country!
there are many places where I Wouldn't want to visit right now.
Well, I should add Scarborough, Ontario...the armpit of Toronto
depends on the time of year and who I'm with~~~ I'm a risk taker.
probably would freeze in antartica or iceland although I would love to see these places.
The Democratic Republic of Congo is pretty high on my list of places NOT to go at the moment!
As a white western man, it would currently be unwise for me to travel to Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Zimbabwe, and Somalia. I would also feel unsafe in Sierre Leonne, Nigeria, and much of the middle east.
I would love to go anywhere which I can consider relatively safe to travel to.
India. I don't know why, but just does not appeal to me to visit the country
depends on the purpose. remember timing is everything. i certainly went places in my youth that i wouldn't contemplate today but then there are places i'd go today that i wouldn't have contemplated in my youth.

good-spirited debate. take a side, join in. purpose is exercise in debate skills and entertainment. I made a background Hub based on current news if anyone is interested for a jump off point.My thesis: FARC (colombian revolutionary armed forces) is not a terrorist organization; it is...

Hello Everyone:Today received very disturbing images of children exploited - and murdered - by the FARC. I'm curious about how the Hubpages community feels about the FARC. For some, they may seem poetically inspired, but for me, they practice the most extreme forms of cruelty. ...
