100 most dangerous cities in the USA America states 10 20 50 Has anyone ever been to any of the real rough parts of any of these cities? I remember when i was heading through Indiana and we were just a little outside Gary. So we stopped at a gas station and asked the clerk where some hotels were in Gary. The guy said you don't want to stay in Gary keep driving. I've also seen St. Louis rated number 1 I didn't know it was that bad.
