This is a sight that has been coined one of America’s first tourist traps — it was actually called a “show cave” back in the late 1800s!
They are the largest caverns on the East side of the US, in Luray, Virginia, so you know, if you’re into well…caves…and stuff…it’s worth it! We’ll let you decide on this one.
If you’re on the east coast, and you’ve got Boston on the list, we recommend you visit the famed ballpark.
It’s had its doors open since 1912, and the “Green Monster” will definitely make you feel like you’re in the USA — especially when fans start singing “Sweet Caroline” before the end of the eighth. Even if you’re not a baseball lover, just go for a couple of innings!
Portland Japanese Garden
So these actually look gorgeous. And besides, if you’re in Oregon already, we know that you’re there for the nature!
Anyway, this popular tourist spot has been called a trap before, but you know, if you’re into Japanese gardens and are looking for a bit of zen, well then this may just be the perfect place for you. If you’re not into watching koi swim under wooden bridges, maybe the Umami Cafe can offer you something.
Maid of the Mist
Pretty sure this was the boat that Pam and Jim got married on when they took their troupe up to Niagara Falls in "The Office", right?
Who wouldn’t want to hear what 600,000 gallons of water sound like? The crashing, the deafening noise, and the mist. Worth it!
The Rink at Rockefeller Center
Okay, before you berate us for choosing this tourist haven and start defending it — we’re actually here to say that it’s kind of worth your money.
Sure, some of the tourist “attractions” on this list are wastes of time and money, but we actually recommend you spend on this one. It’s the epitome of Christmas with the ice skaters at the rink and that big Christmas tree in the background, right?
