Fictional Places to Avoid

So which fictional places do you think are best to avoid and why?

Cabot Cove - High Murder Rate
Midsomer County - High Murder rate
Amity Island - Favourite destination of man eating sharks.

Monster Island in the South Pacific because of Godzilla and the rest of the kaiju living there.

Golden Gate Bridge, favorite target of aliens and supervillians.

And stay away from New York and LA generally.
