That may be true for some of the larger parks like the Disney's but if you live near to smaller parks, they can be much more fun. You will face much shorter lines and small crowds.

Beaches are littered? Anyway, no one ever said the Keys have great beaches, except people who think that up in their head and some gawdy tourism folks. Key West for years and years has been a "sleezy" town with door to door bars. But I do not know what freak show you speak of. Plenty of shopping of all types there, not sure what more you would want for the place.

I do it four times a year, it is a nice drive, with stops for lunch and snorkeling.

We used to live in SE Florida. We have been snorkeling many times at John PenneKamp state park at Key Largo. There is a live Coral reef there that has awesome snorkeling. It is like being in a salt water aquarium.

We have driven out to Key West several times. We are not fans of Key West but we often had visitors that wanted to see it.

Or... (gasp)... some people have different opinions that you about subjective things, and have STILL traveled way more than you.

I'm forever in awe that people think others with different preferences must somehow have traveled less, it sets the douche-meter to 11.

I don't think I've ever had a bad meal in Seattle come to think of it....

I'm going to add Tombstone, AZ to a waaaaay overrated place. Tourist trap with a capital T sadly. You pay through the nose to do anything, looking inside of old buildings that aren't retail establishments, viewing a big old rose bush, getting a glimpse of the O-K corral. Bisbee, AZ is by far a better town to visit for historical flavor without the built in ka-ching. In that regard I prefer the Canadian model of making historical places parks with access for people to see those sites with minimal or no entrance/viewing fee rather than a walled off corral or ancient rosebush behind a ten foot fence.

I loved Tombstone. I agree that it's a tourist trap and that it's super cheesy but I thought it was awesome. It was faux Wild West and I thought that they did a real good job with the place. I was entertained and I would definitely go back.
