With permission, I've decided to officiate the footballs future traveling thread. This thread will be for travel suggestions/cities/stories(good and bad)/food recommendations/etc.

I will do my best to keep an official record in the 1st post of various member recommendations by city. This should be a good way for the greater FF community to gain broader travel knowledge in general. Plus, after all, who doesn't love traveling to new places?

I am leaving for Kansas City early in the AM, so anybody who has been there, feel free to share your experiences and any other recommendations. I will share mine upon return along with other travel experiences.

Best places to go on a day trip from southern Ohio? Thinking Chicago or New York (though that may take a bit longer).

From southern Ohio that's a hell of a hike for a day trip. I'd do Nashville.

I enjoyed going out in downtown KC.

Power and Light is a great place. Bunch of bars in one area.

Food is good but definitely scattered. Best BBQ in the country.

Also day trip from Southern Ohio to Chicago might be much. Its a 5 hour drive at the least one way.

Indianapolis isnt bad for a day trip. Ive never been to Louisville but heard decent things

My friends and I were thinking about going somewhere in SCAR, either myrtle beach or charleston this summer. Which would be more fun for 21 year olds to go (basically best beaches and nightlife?)

Indy is solid but not too much to do out there.

KC is apparently terrible but I'm sure we'll get more info on that latter

Myrtle Beach is trashy while Charleston is excellent.

Personally KC is one of my favorite places. Jack Stack, Oklahoma Joes, and (to a lesser extent) Gates are all great BBQ. V's Italiano kicks butt as well. Love KC

Haven't traveled at all in the US outside of a week in Philly but that was spent working in homeless shelters, and a week in Seattle visiting my girlfriend's family. Been all over the South though. Whoever said go Charleston over Myrtle, can't agree more. Myrtle is so trashy.

As for cities abroad, I'll give a few positives and negatives for each of the few that I've been to. Know that I'm not into nightlife that much so my opinions on that are nil.

Europe; In order of my most to least favorite

Zurich, Switzerland:
+Lots to do
+Beautiful women
+Gorgeous scenery
+Amazing public transit

-Expensive. Like, holy hell, expensive.
-The museums are pretty hit or miss.

Paris, France:
+Metro
+The food
+The Wine
+Amazing sites all over the city

-The people are meh
-Moulin Rouge is overhyped
-Expensive

Lisbon, Portugal:
+Amazing people
+Amazing food
+So much cheaper than most of Western Europe

-Beaches are eh
-Public transit is okay but taxis are cheap
-Not quite as much to see and do

Amsterdam, Netherlands:
+Coffee shops
+Friday Cheese Market in Alkmaar
+Gorgeous women. just... gorgeous. Even the girlfriend was looking
+House Boats
+Biking

-Rowdy people
-Weather (I realize it could have just been the week we were there, but most said that was normal)
-Expensive

Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
+Trains
+Castles everywhere
+Amazing scenery
+Gen. Patton Museum

-Probably the most expensive place we visited outside Zurich
-The buses
-Not much to do after castles and museums

Munich, Germany:
+Beer
+Amazing Beer
+Public Transit
+Prices are decent
+Lot of history and Neuschwanstein Castle

-Probably the worst place we went as far as good looking women is concerned
-Not a ton to do

Izmir, Turkey
+Women
+Mediterranean Coast
+City tours

-Beer is mediocre as all hell
-Pricey
-The city has won several lists for most beautiful women in Europe and they act like it

Malta (Not putting a particular city since it's so small it doesn't matter, but recommend Mdina)
+Food
+Beaches
+Beautiful water

-Tourist places abound. Not much to do besides the tourist stuff
-I was there during the MTV Summer Party of Europe so some of the most smoking hot women I've ever laid eyes on, but they were roped off as they only wanted women in their shots Laughing so I'm counting that as a negative

Rome, Italy:
+Obviously Roman ruins
+Food
+Wine
+Vatican City

-Public transit is an absolute nightmare
-People are rude
-Once you've seen the Colosseum and the major ruins, you've kind of seen all they have to offer

Milan, Italy
+Women look good

-Everything

Southeast Asia: I'll be adding to this list next year as I'm moving just outside Manila in July.

Bangkok, Thailand:
+The food
+So cheap
+Gorgeous scenery
+Lots to do in and out of the city
+Nightlife
+Tuk-tuks

-Lot of homeless and poverty you can't imagine
-Dirty city

+Angkor Wat
+Angkor What?

-People are really pushy, more so than Bangkok even

Maldives: I didn't stay at a resort and opted to stay at a guest house in Maafushi and take a boat ride to the resorts
+Gorgeous scenery
+Best beaches in the world
+Isolation
+Cheap if you want it to be
+Diving and Snorkeling

-Muslim country so no alcohol unless at a resort

-Crazy expensive to stay at a resort

Pokhara, Nepal:
+Cheap
+Scenery
+Tons of stuff to do (Parasailing, hang gliding, trekking)

-Dirty
-People can be pushy

Amsterdam is fantastic. The people are amazing and they're all in shape. But then again everyone would be if everyone ride bikes everywhere

The problem with Indy is it's too spread out... There are things to do in Greenwood and Carmel, but one is complete south and one is completely north of Indy. And anything outside those two areas is either questionable or downtown, which can be boring unless there are events going on. I go to Cincinnati/Louisville/Chicago before Indy.

Truth. For a group of 21 year old dudes I should mention that the city of Charleston has a population that's 60% women and 40% men not to mention a few colleges downtown that all but ensures quite a bit of that 60% is college aged. Bar and food scene in Charleston is stellar and the beaches are pretty decent.
