Like many TripAdvisor members, my wife and I regularly travel to new places. Whether that's a new beach, city, region, community, state or country. We are sometimes surprised at the people or energy of a place, because it's different than what tour books or media portray. For example, my wife and I recently returned from a week and a half trip throughout Maine. Photos, books and movies describe the physical beeauty. What it didn't describe was the coldness ad rudeness of nearly all the locals to us and other tourists. I mean, it was non stop. It wasn't until we got home that multiple people asked us,"Didn't you know, they are stuck up and many are prejudiced there." All we could say was, "No, nobody informed us of that."
With that being said, I would like members to be able to post comments on locations they visit, such as cities, states, etc. Then we can all be more informed if several people post similar problems or similar likes.
