Tourist Traps I've Visited
I'm convinced that tourist traps are by far the more interesting way to spend a vacation.
Guntown Mountain, Kentucky. Highly amusing wild west town near Mammoth Cave. We had to take a ski lift up to the town.
Custer's Last Stand, Battle of Little Big Horn, Montana. There's a cool educational building where you learn/buy stuff, then you go outside, walk up a hill, and look at the ground and stare awkwardly at your sibling before deciding to go wait in the car.
Wright Brother's Monument, North Carolina. All I can remember is how much my sandals were hurting my feet and fracking hot out it was. I never made it up that hill.
Mount Rushmore, South Dakota. In the summertime you have to do a lot of legwork to be able to actually see the monument. We were really excited about this one and ended up being extremely underwhelmed. Plus, had we just driven a little further down the road, the trees cleared and you could see them really well from your car.
Wall Drug, South Dakota. If you're ever driving anywhere near South Dakota, you will definitely see signs for Wall Drug. In fact, you see so many damned signs, that you can't help but stop and browse this ridiculously large drug store. It's all very curious and a good way to stretch your legs.
