Most allowed Taxonomies in Appearance->Menus

I am managing a large list(300) of “places” taxonomies, and I need to create a menu with those places. the WordPress menu system seems like the way to go but when I save the menu I am getting a PHP timeout error.

Why is this taking so long to save the menu? Is there a recommended limit for the amount of terms you should be adding to a menu?
