What is the most boring NFL city?

Recommended Posts

It has to be Indianapolis, right? I have only drive through, so my assessment may be ignorant, but that would be the last place I would venture to for a football game! 

 

 Kind of a random thought, sorry.

Philly or NY for a any Eagles or Jets matchup. By most accounts I've heard their fans are complete :censored:holes.

I've done NFL trips in Baltimore, Cleveland, Denver, Kansas City, and Chicago so far and in my opinion Kansas City was the most boring city..but I will give them their props for having excellent BBQ joints

Great team, but Green Bay as a city is not that cool.

You'd be surprised.  I travel to Indy for business on occasion and they have a really built-up downtown with tons of bars, restaurants, museums, etc.  There's also some good bike and running trails in and near downtown.  They have a lot of convention space, plus the Pacers Fieldhouse, plus Lucas Oil field, so they have lots of visitors in town all the time.  They got high marks when they hosted the Super Bowl a few years ago and they also have hosted numerous Big 10 Football Championship games, Big 10 Basketball tournaments and Final Fours.  So, I would actually recommend Indy highly.  Oakland is pretty bad, but near SF and other good parts of the Bay Area.  Green Bay is amazing for football Sundays (I have been to one game there and am going to the Bills game again there this year), but other than that, not much to see other than an old industrial town.  I have never been to Charlotte, but it doesn't inspire me.  Truth be told, I can have fun in any city.

Jacksonville is pretty damned dull.  

 

And as spread out as they are all over the place, I can't imagine Dallas and Houston are all that exciting, either.

Are we talking stadium experience? Because the worst I’ve been to is Washington.

No that's not the topic the OP started otherwise my answer would be different.

Dallas is an underrated city.  Very cosmopolitan, great food, etc

My group is doing Green Bay this year for our Bills trip but we have decided to stay in Milwaukee first to hang out and party as it seems there really isn't much else going on in Green Bay

That stadium has all the excitement of reading the phone book.

Buffalo is up there although is much better than it was. Detroit, GB, Cincinatti, Oakland and Jacksonville are all in the mix.

It’s got to be Indy, but I’m assuming outside of the game Green Bay isn’t much fun. 

 

Ive been to Wisconsin and outside of normal bar type places I haven’t found all that much to do.

I live in Jax and can attest to its mind numbing boredom. Personally, I have no love for Atlanta. ‘Jewel of the South’ my butt. It’s a soulless, empty city with no appreciable culture, style or cuisine.

Gotta disagree, been to Indy for work and my experiences have not been favorable.

I don’t agree on Dallas at all. I think it’s a fine city, not sure it’s very underrated outside of the poster you’re responding to.

Of all the NFL cities I've hung out or been to, I'd say Detroit is probably the worst. But as one guy said, I can have fun in any city.  If we are talking about hanging out and areas by the stadium, then the Rams are down on the list too. No tailgate area, no atmosphere around the area. New Orleans is one of the best with Tampa Bay, Miami and San Francisco also fun places to hang out.  But in my heart, nothing beats coming back to Buffalo for a game.

Not stadium experience. I am asking about the town overall.

 

I have been to Jax - it sucks - maybe too five for me. Been to Dallas and KC many times - both fine cities other than the two closest teams I hate! NOLA...obviously. GB is probably a dud without their team, so it sounds boring.

 

I have been to many NFL cities. I have only been to one NFL game (1980 Bills-Dolphins goal post game)

Yeah, not sure they’d qualify as “nfl” cities as neither of them have nfl teams.

Coca Cola and Chik-fil-A, and you claim no cuisine?!  It's a wonder the Second Civil War hasn't broken out!

Well obviously Buffalo wouldn't be paradise for a pure vacation but is it really that boring for a football trip?  There are lots of bars and awesome places to go out and get pub food(having awesome food spots is a big plus any football trip), if it's just the boys going you can catch the Canadian Ballet(which I know is a huge draw when out of towners come in for Bills games) we've got some Casinos in the area and just the nature of Buffalo filled with passionate football fans everywhere I would like to think Buffalo would be considered a fun city for a football game.

Yeah, disagree with Buffalo too. Every time I brought someone to a game and partied the weekend before they all had an excellent time. 

 

Some folks like to bash the area, pretty unwarranted in my opinion. Maybe they haven’t done much traveling to compare?

Are we talking football trip?!? If so Buffalo is nowhere near that list. That is one of the best trips. I thought we were talking as a city all year.
