I was born in DC...and I've lived in this area my entire life...and I still get turned around when driving through the city. I started by broadcasting career in DC as a reporter. I had to drive from one big story to another every day. I got lost so many times, I lost count. Back then, I had to rely on a map (before GPS was around).

Believe it or not, it took getting LOST to finally figure out the city. According to the Huffington Post, here are THE MOST CONFUSING CITIES TO GET LOST IN:


Boston: The majority of the city's winding streets aren't gridded in any particular fashion, confusing pedestrians and drivers alike.

Venice: Canals, bridges, narrow curving streets, dead-ends... Venice is the mother of all confusing cities. Wander off from the tourist areas, take in the beauty and let the maze-like streets guide you.

Washington, D.C.: Streets can be numbered, lettered or named after a state, and they intersect in the most bizarre ways. Traffic circles and one ways plague drivers and cyclists, while pedestrians can easily get confused by strange street quirks, like the fact that there is no "J" street and "I" and "Eye" street are the same thing.
