U.S's Most Over Rate Tourist Spots

Recommended Posts

According to Yahoo -

 

Fisherman's Wharf

San Francisco

 

 

 

It’s very easy to have an enjoyable, fulfilling stay in San Francisco without ever touching foot in this awful place, which has all the appeal of a rundown (and yet somehow very expensive) amusement park. If you are forced to visit, however, I recommend the Musee Mecanique, a wonderfully eerie collection of vintage penny arcade games located at Pier 45.

 

 

 

Petrified Forest National Park

Holbrook, Ariz.

 

 

 

Petrified Forest National Park is located off of Interstate 40 between Holbrook and Navajo. From the north entrance of the park off of Interstate 40, a roughly 25-mile driving route meanders south among a spare expanse of rocks and sand, until you find yourself on Highway 180. Then you drive back up to Interstate 40 and continue on your way, an hour closer to the grave.

 

 

 

Wall Street

New York City

 

 

 

Wall Street could easily be described as a dark, narrow alley full of traffic pylons, heavily armed police officers, harried office workers and lots of tourists taking pictures of a street sign. Federal Hall, where Washington gave his inaugural address, consists of a mostly empty rotunda with a few exhibits, and the New York Stock Exchange is strictly off-limits these days.

 

 

 

Plymouth Rock

Plymouth, Mass.

 

 

 

Plymouth Rock sits inside a Greek Temple-like structure along a pleasant promenade in Plymouth Harbor, Mass. The rock is gray and worn, and roughly the size of a car engine, with the year 1620 stamped across its side. It marks the precise spot where William Bradford and the Mayflower pilgrims set foot in the New World, except for the fact that this actually happened in Provincetown.

 

 

 

The Alamo

San Antonio, Texas

 

 

 

The Alamo, otherwise known as Mission San Antonio de Valero, sits on roughly four acres in downtown San Antonio, a short distance from the River Walk. Much of the original structure is no more, and what remains are a few small stone buildings and some neatly trimmed lawns. The audio tour concludes in an exceedingly well-provisioned gift shop.

 

 

 

Hollywood

Los Angeles

 

 

 

Enjoy a concert at the Hollywood Bowl, watch the sunset from the Griffith Observatory, or take a stroll in Runyon Canyon Park. But don’t go looking for “Hollywood,” because you’re liable to wind up on the Walk of Fame being harassed by a Charlie Chaplin impersonator.

 

 

 

Bourbon Street

New Orleans

 

 

 

Everyone should make an effort to visit New Orleans, and the romance of the French Quarter is still alive and well in places such as Jackson Square and Decatur Street. But for the sake of your dignity, avoid Bourbon Street if you can. All the charming cast-iron balconies in the world can’t save this stretch of sadness.

 

 

 

RMS Queen Mary

Long Beach, Calif.

 

 

 

What do you get when you cross a Ramada Inn with a rusty old ship? The RMS Queen Mary, the once-proud jewel of the Cunard Line, which now lies permanently docked in Long Beach as a hotel, convention center and floating haunted house (paranormal tours are available). They should have given poor old Mary an honorable burial at sea.

MT Rushmore should be on there, when i saw that shit i was a little let down, was not as enormous as i expected, but we didnt pay to go for the little nature walk to get closer, but from the distance we were at, i felt it should have been like 2-3x bigger.

i was very disappointed in the Liberty Bell.

every history book i grew up reading depicted that bell to be the size of a fucking car.

 

i was crushed when i saw that it was so small. /nh

What is overrated about fishermans wharf is Pier 39

 

Fuck that place

 

I dont understand how people come from all over the world and the first thing they want to see is that place

 

Theres nothing there

 

There used to be a dope arcade place there but its been sized down considerably

 

All the shops there are over priced

 

The restaurants are terrible, over priced, and you always have a long wait

That's where you'll find me, laughing at all the frosty tipped Armenian guidos and processed blondes.

 

Fisherman's Wharf is easy. When people come to visit SF and ask me what to do, I tell them to blow at least one afternoon there and get it out of their system. No one really likes it, but it's just one of those things you have to do when you're here.

 

Then I take them to the TL, we get some wine and crack, and I see if I can get them fucked up enough to catch dome off a tranny.

that arcade place was soooooo sick.. i already hated the hard rock cafe, but since they moved in to that spot i consider us enemies for life. i dont get it either, that place was always poppin. had to be making plenty of money, guess the lease must have just ran out. but this becomes just another reason i really miss the 90's.

At this time, I'd like

to conclude our tour.

 

 

 

You all have been one of the greatest

groups I have ever worked with.

 

 

 

Are there any questions?

 

 

 

Where's the basement?

 

 

 

Aren't we going to see the basement?

There's no basement at the Alamo.

 

 

 

Pee-wee, I'm on my way to Paris.

 

 

 

Andy and I had a fight after you left.

 

 

 

You were right, Pee-wee.

 

 

 

I'm making my wish come true.

 

 

 

I'm off to Paris!

 

 

 

What's wrong?

 

 

 

Bus leaving for New York City,

now departing.

 

 

 

That's my bus.

 

 

 

Come on.

Guess what. The Alamo was built

without a basement.

 

 

 

I didn't know that.

 

 

 

Neither did I. They don't tell you

that stuff in school.

 

 

 

It's something you

just have to experience.

 

 

 

Don't worry, Pee-wee.

I know you'll find your bike.

 

 

 

Good luck. I just know

you're going to find your bike.

 

 

 

Hello, Dottie? It's me, Pee-wee.

 

 

 

Where are you calling from?

 

 

 

Texas.

 

 

 

Honest. Listen, I'll prove it.

Are big and bright...
