You know that one place that gives you shudders. That's filled with overpriced attractions and shops that are disgusting. List them here.

(In no order)
1.Myrtle Beach/Grand Strand, South Carolina(Thank God Charelston is right down the coast)
2.Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge/Sevierville, Tennesse (This one is quite a shame because the Great Smokies park is beautiful. Again, thank Jesus that Ashville's near by)
3.Branson, Missouri
4.Virgina Beach, Virgina
5.Panama City Beach, Florida
6.Niagra Falls, NY/ON(At least the falls are there)

Myrtle Beach is the worst. It's a dirty places and all I see are a bunch of drunk college kids.

Pier 39 in San Francisco. The views and waterfront with the seals is nice but the actual pier and everything on it sucks. It's nothing but cheesy souvenir shops and chain stores you can find in pretty much any mall in America.

I always felt that they should've never wrecked Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg or Sevierville with that tourist junk. I mean it's right there by the Appalachians.

Why Branson? Just got back and I found the prices there to be reasonable. You need to know where to go.
