People Are Sharing Travel Destinations That Are Totally Overrated

Have you ever planned a vacation and when you got there it was way less cool than you thought it would be?

It really stinks to have taken time off work, paid for everything, and stressed overpacking for something that really wasn’t as cool as you thought it would be. My vacation needs to be incredible to make packing worth it. 

People on Reddit are sharing the vacation destinations that were hugely disappointing to warn people of overrated travel spots. Thanks, folks. I’ll just stick to watching the travel channel for now.

“That wing mural in Nashville.. There is literally a line that takes an hour to go take a picture with a pair of wings on a wall.”

“Plymouth Rock.

It’s just a rock. It’s not even a big rock, or a weird-looking rock; it’s just a grayish lump the size of a beanbag chair with “1620” carved on it. I didn’t pay anything to look at it and it still was a ripoff.
There’s a nice pizza place nearby though.”

“Kind of specific, but I visited the Gold and Silver pawn shop from the show “Pawn Stars” when I was in Las Vegas a couple weeks ago.

Holy s**t that place is tiny. Mad props to the production crew that films inside there, because I always imagined it was big and open. It’s basically a single isle from the door to the back of the store with a little side area where the registers and offices are.

I went out of my way to see it, expecting to spend at least an hour looking around. After being inside for 5 minutes I saw pretty much everything and left quite disappointed.”

“Hollywood! I feel so bad for tourists in LA that waste their vacation time in that dirty hellhole.”

“As a tour guide in Paris, here’s my time to shine and help you save time and money:

Avoid Paris In June and July, August. September is best, May comes in second.

ALWAYS, always book your skip-the-line tickets online before going to a landmark. Nothing in Paris is worth waiting 3 hours in line. Instead, go drink some wine and eat some cheese + baguette in a nice park or by the river.”

“Oslofjorden.

Please go anywhere else In Norway when you visit.”

If you know, you know.”

“If you’re in Dublin, stay away from the Temple Bar area.

It’s ridiculously overpriced and is not at all what a real Irish bar is like at all.”

“UAE.

It’s the most culturally deficient place you will ever see in your life!!”

“Bondi Beach in Sydney.

Overcrowded, everything there is way overpriced.”

“I was dragged to Dubai to visit relatives a couple of years ago and I could not find the words to describe how soulless and uninteresting the place is.

Then there is the unrelenting, searing heat. I couldn’t wait to leave after around 3 days.”

“Pisa.

Besides the small square with the tower where everyone is taking the same sh**ty joke pic. And guys tryna sell you toys.

The rest of the town is pretty s**t.

You’re in Tuscany, go to ANY small town and you’ll enjoy it far more.”

“South Beach/Miami

Over priced bars and clubs, if you’re a dude and you dont have a fine group of women with you, be ready to drop serious cash for a night out if you’re there.

There are better beaches up and down the coast, that wont force you into the terrible traffic and parking SB has.”
