Best Life Online said when coming up with each state's biggest tourist trap

"There are places all over the world that are considered tourist traps, or places where tourists are lured in with the expectation of something great. Sometimes, these attractions can exploit travelers with overpriced goods or services, but other times, they can really live up to the hype. Either way, it’s always good to be aware of what popular and frequently visited locations are considered tourist traps that won’t have much to offer before you travel there.”
