The solution we have chosen on our Mud is to create a wilderness zone
(outdoor) to which you connect the "dungeon" zones (cities too). The
outdoor zone is graphically displayed with a bird-sight point of view. I
personally don't like Muds with a lot of interconnecting rooms, with always
the same text description and nothing to do. With a good design, you can
give to your player a more "geographical" world to move around.
And obviously, is really simpler for you to make changes to this world.

Just my two cents
