The Worst Place to Travel to This Summer Is . . . Jacksonville?

A summer vacation doesn’t have to include a beach . . . and maybe it shouldn’t include Jacksonville.

Forbes set out to find the WORST places to spend a summer vacation . . . considering a bunch of different factors including crime, prices, ease of travel, extreme weather, and “experiences.”

They looked at 43 bigger cities . . . and the one that scored the WORST was Jacksonville, Florida.  The negatives include:  Poor walkability . . . a lack of public transportation . . . a high crime rate . . . and a high summer heat index.

Colorado Springs was the second-worst destination, followed by Fresno, California . . . Memphis . . . Albuquerque, New Mexico . . . Indianapolis . . . Louisville, Kentucky . . . Tampa . . . Tucson, Arizona . . . and Miami.

The best summer vacation city in America was Minneapolis, followed by Long Beach, California . . . Washington, D.C. . . . Seattle . . . and Omaha, Nebraska.
