    Of the four american cities I've been to, San Fran > LA > Baltimore = DC.


    EDIT: I lied. I completely forgot that I've been to Seattle before. Ill throw Seattle in tied with LA.

    Not crazy about it. I spent a few weeks in the Queens Village area and had some fun and some good eats, but meh.

    I like houston although its where all my friends are. Its not a town to visit, you have to slowly unlock its treasures. Kind of like posts from beantown, its not for everyone, and at times can seem dense and a little annoying, but if you give it a chance, it gets a lot better over time.

    Not sure if serious (probably not) but no, zero gangs. Family stayed in El Segundo to sleep over our the 5 nights.

    Other than periodically visiting the harbour and the surrounding area, most of my time was spent on the campus of Johns Hopkins University. The campus, quite frankly, was gorgeous. The harbour really wasn't that bad either. I didn't mind Baltimore at all. DC was cool to see the monuments, capitol hill, and so on. Had great food too, wish the group I was with went to a better restaurant than ****ing Hard Rock Cafe. Sigh.

    There was only one other Canadian, but you're still right in terms of most of the kids having not been to Hard Rocks before. Could not believe that I went to a food mecca in DC, and ****ing blew my chance of sending my tastebuds to heaven.

    Please. Edmonton is a dump when it comes to tourism and cuisine.

    Eh, my family doesn't really ever eat out much regardless. We've never really had surplus funds to go out and eat on a regular basis, so I have not been raised a foodie.

    Life isn't about money, but you have a great opportunity to experience great things. Keep studying.
