    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.

    You can add Sunnydale, CA and Haven, ME.

    Plus, anywhere Carl Kolchak is covering a story . . . .

    Camp Crystal Lake does not sound like a place I would be interested in visiting.

    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.

    Despite the name it's actually a peninsula though.

    I'd steer clear of Sunnydale, especially the High School.

    Delta Vega. The real one, not the one near where Vulcan used to be.
