What’s a tourist attraction you’ve been to that was 100% not worth the hype?

With me it is a three way tie between:

the general "Times Square / Broadway / Rockefeller Center" area of New York City

Orlando, Florida - the whole damned thing.

And the "Vieux Carre" of NOLA.


All three suffer from exploitative pricing, mind-numbing amounts of commercialization, overpopulation of tourists, and NOTHING else to reccommend them EXCEPT being a tourist destination.


To prove my points, with everything except Orlando which was too painful to even write up:




Both have adequate photo pages to make checking them out worthwhile.
