America's Most Overrated Tourist Attractions
Click here and find one travel writer's idea of the most hyped U.S. attractions that leave you appreciating your home the most intensely.
Among his choices for the sorriest destinations are:
*Bourbon Street. It's a cesspool! Unless you think of Girls Gone Wild as an exercise in high art.
*Hollywood. Ditto! When you see people running down Hollywood Boulevard, it's not to get an autograph--it's for their lives!
*The Alamo. Not worth remembering at all.
*and Wall Street. A big, ugly bore--though since stocks have rallied a bit, I actually enjoy traipsing around there and feeling the diminshed desperation.
Left out of the list, weirdly enough, is my butt! It's not worth visiting at all!
