America is a great place to discover. There is a lot to see and do all over the United States that keep Americans busy over the weekend and during any holiday. The States has a massive collection of everything interesting and exciting starting from mountains to deserts to the most varied coastlines that anyone could dream of.
In spite of so many exotic and unique places to visit; people, again and again, keep going back to the same old overrated tourist places. These places are visited by millions of visitors and countless devotees even if they are overrated.
Here are some of the overrated places in America that people should avoid visiting.
Empire State Building, New York
The Empire building is quite popular with its beautiful marble lobby where movies like An Affair to Remember and Sleepless in Seattle have been shot on its 86th floor. But magnificent it might be, it is always crowded and filled with tourists from all over the world. Moreover, when you come outside, looking out through metal bars, it gives you a cramped and caged feeling. You can instead visit the iconic Rockefeller Center that is just 15 blocks north from that place.
Hollywood Walk of Fame, Los Angeles, CA
Another overrated place in America is the Hollywood walk of fame that has stars bearing the names of stars placed on one of the sides of this particular stretch of Hollywood Blvd as there is no other reason people flock to this place. You can instead go hiking for a few miles locating some stars in the sky or take a stroll on The Strand, which is an iconic beachfront path stretching from Pacific Palisades down to Torrance.
Lombard, St San Francisco, CA
The famously crooked street that is 600-yard-long is not worth the endless line of cars standing in a line to go downhill. Every 10 seconds, you feel like driving away especially when you realize that despite all the traffic and a 5mph speed limit, it only takes a couple of minutes to reach the bottom to see nothing. If you want to stand witness to the iconic views of San Francisco, you need to cross the Golden Gate Bridge and take in the sweeping vista from nearby Vista Point.
Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, New York, NY
Have you yet visited the iconic statue in New York? Famously known as Lady Liberty and protruding out of the New York Harbor off the southern tip of Manhattan, Statue of Liberty is one of America’s most popular tourist spots. In spite of such huge popularity, it is not worth the cost and time that you have to spend on it. Therefore, no one would suggest you waste a whole afternoon in NYC riding a ferry to get a close view of the Statue of Liberty when one can get picture-perfect views from the Battery Park. You can otherwise take a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and get the best views of the city and the harbor --Statue of Liberty included without paying any fee.
Mall of America, Bloomington, Minneapolis
It's the largest shopping mall in the United States and always remains crowded with shoppers than any other mall in the country. There is nothing except a bunch of stores you probably have seen in your hometown, with a few extra kiddy rides sponsored by Nickelodeon, and a slightly depressing miniature aquarium to set it apart.
If you want to witness these places in person because of its popularity, you can fly to this country on American Airlines. The airlines are known for their popularity and service it provides to its customers. Moreover, American Airlines customer service is available round the clock to assist customers whenever required.
