Los Angeles native. Can confirm. Hollywood Blvd is a shit hole, and the greater Hollywood area of LA is basically just a combination of touristy bullshit and (wannabe) trendy nonsense.

sukinsyn

Yeah same, I thought Paris was super clean except for the one subway entrance that had like a massive puddle of piss, but I was there at the convergence of Bastille Day and Algeria winning the Coup d'Afrique so I can forgive people for partying a little too hard 🤣


Meatros

I was there a few years ago (maybe 2016?) and it was very clean. I think it gets a bad rap. New Orleans on the other hand....


Djayshell93

Yep, came here to say this. Paris smelled of feces and urine everywhere. The movies lied to us all lol


Big_Page_2845

What?!

It's true. It was so bad that I looked it up. And I wasn't imagining it. I was not the first to ask the internet. Apparently, the cause is a cultural phenomenon of public urination. P.S.: it's called pipi sauvage

Basement carvings?


Applehurst14

The basement at the Alamo. One of the world's greatest attractions. Paul Reubens told me about it back in the day.


CalGoldenBear55

It was forgettable. So was Plymouth Rock.


yungingr

For all the Texas pride associated with it, and the "everythings bigger in Texas" mentality, I expected a sprawling fortress with an expansive lawn/greenspace around it. It's a building not much bigger than my house, literally shoehorned into the middle of downtown. I appreciate the historical significance and all, and I'm glad I saw it, but the hype around it does not do it any favors.


redeose234

I was on a roadtrip with my friends through US last summer and we stopped to see it. As European that has many castles and fortresses all around the country it really isn't that impressive. US has beautiful nature and that is impressive, but all of the historical buildings are just ok... nothing special.

Been there, it was mildly interesting. I mean if you have to be in San Antonio, Texas anyway...

Don’t: Disney World Do: Grand Canyon at sunset or sunrise.


robgray111

Only done the grand canyon during the daytime and it absolutely blew me away. No picture or film can ever come close to doing it justice


Vintagepoolside

My dad went last summer. He’s but up and down the east coast and travels probably 4 times a year. The beach has always been his “place.” But it was so nice when he came back from the Grand Canyon at fifty two years old completely blown away. He said it was “proof” a God existed. And while I don’t believe in God anymore, It was obvious that the experience had impacted him greatly, and it was nice to see him so awed after not seeing him like that before.


Legal-Today-4277

Dubai..


AeneasWalk

Dubai is just a huge floss for the world to see with absolutely no street culture. The city is not walkable so you basically shuttle yourself from one building to the next in air conditioned cars. There is nothing to experience up close in terms of culture or history. It's probably more interesting as a Muslim as you will have more access to the different mosques. The only people I see interested in going to Dubai are those that follow influencers and do not know how to travel. /rant


Legal-Today-4277

fillmewithmayo

These days: anything Disney. The value just isnt there. It's expensive, overcrowded, and the paid-pass people bypass everyone else making it even more expensive. The rides are always breaking down.


bsldestroyer

I agree 100%. Six thousand dollars for a mildly fun vacation is kinda ridiculous! Disney World is an unbelievable amount of walking to get to everything.

I went shortly after it opened up post Covid with reduced crowds and it was amazing


pyroagg

If you don’t like being a tourist then most places suck, but if you’re realistic and know that pretty much no matter what you do that you are a tourist, then it can be great. Especially if you know the history of the city/place and walk around in wonder of all the things that have happened there.


Far-Crow9752

Yes!!! I think people are lazy about these things sometimes. They believe the destination should craft their entire experience when it’s truly all about the lead up and how you craft your own expectations. Just like if you don’t like being somewhat dusty/dirty, plants and wildlife you will not enjoy hiking or camping. Sitting at the fire at the end of the day or jumping into a mountain spring is not a be all end all experience due to the majority of the rest of the experience that isn’t optional.


[deleted]

Mona Lisa at the Louvre. Probably the most underwhelming thing I’ve ever seen. Edit: Wow a lot of responses. I guess it’s one of those things if you’re there you may as well tick it off but yes, it’s a lot smaller than I thought and you have to fight enormous crowds to see it. I would not go out of my way to see it, even if you do, you still won’t get close enough to appreciate any details. I think somebody thought I was knocking the Louvre museum. I’m not, it’s a beautiful place and full of awesome. Definitely go there.


windermere_peaks

I'm headed to France in just a few days for a vacation and the Louvre is on my list of "tourist" things to do. Idc about the Mona Lisa though. I mean, I do want to see it if possible, but I'll be happy with a glance from twenty paces.


nopejake101

That's about as close as you'll get anyway. Just keep in mind: it's smaller than you think, and it's the only thing on that wall. Looks like a stamp on an envelope. The rest of the Louvre is sick tho. And all the museum's around it too. The musee des arts decoratifs is awesome, but I think it's closed ATM. Also, the Orangerie at the other end of the Louvre, has Monet's Water Lilies and shit. Other than that, you've got Musee d'Orsay, Centre Pompidou, Eiffel Tower, all that cool stuff. You could easily spend a week in just the city centre. But you probably already know that, I just like to reminisce


Exact_Classroom_2793

I read that with Bill Hader’s “The Californians” accent. Made it so much better.


heyBigBird

Can confirm. I was so excited to see it then I thought really that's it?? Glad I saw it in person but the rest of the museum was so much better!


Jamiepappasatlanta

The Mona Lisa is a hugely important work. There is a lot of history of the painting itself. Leonardo hung it in his bedroom. Of all the paintings he did, he chose this one.

Paris. Did not like it it. Walking around was like sucking on a bus tailpipe and people were rude. I had a constant low grade headache from walking around in the diesel exhaust. I dunno, maybe it's gotten better in 20 years? OH, and the people trying to run scams on tourists. Fuck that place.


redfluor

Yup the city as a place sucks actually, among european capitals I prefer berlin actually. But there are still a ton of monuments and places that are worth the visit, but I guess you need to have some basic background knowledge of the french culture and history to appreciate the thing.


Flimzom

St. Louis arch. Metal sky vagina surrounded by ass.


Saintsfan_9

HPGOTTOP

I suppose I’m bias being from St. Louis but there are so many cool things to do and most importantly many are free. Forest park alone has the zoo (one of the top public zoos in country), jewel box, science center, the muny, the boathouse. Art and transportation museums. There is the city museum (if you are a big guy this might not be fun), botanical gardens, grants farm. Bunch of different restaurants. An always exciting baseball and hockey team.

Nyx_-_-_

Paris. It's by far the dirtiest city i've ever been. There are way too many pick pockets and the people are very rude


darksedan

Resident of Paris here. It really depends on where you are in the city. General trend is, as you near the peripherique (the outer circumference of the city) it gets pretty shitty and also near the major train stations like Gare du Nord, Gare de l'est and Montparnasse. EDIT: people here are rude if you don't approach them the right way. A simple "bonjour" before asking a question to a random person on the street or while entering a shop will get you a better response.


Nekrovv

Can you recommend some non turistic but nice places to visit? I've been there twice and really enjoyed the city


darksedan

With pleasure! Parc Buttes Chaumont, Bois de Vincennes for truly great parks. Grab a friend, a bottle of wine and some cheese and go sit on the Canal Saint Martin or Bassin de la vilette. Oh and La Vilette is excellent for art shows, concerts and you have the philharmonie de Paris nearby too. Cheap beers (for students and anarchists) at le cour du petits écuries or l’attirail near Arts et Métiers. You can try yo if hand at French summer games like Pétanque and Molky on the Canal d’Ourcq. Food: buckwheat galettes at Lulu laNantaise. Pizza at Pizza Popolare. Soba Ramen at Aki (rue Sainte Anne), Falafel at l’As du falafel in the marais. Nightclubs: la colonie, badaboum, Rosa bonheur sur Seine (it’s a boat!) Let me know if you like any specific activities, cuisine etc


Nekrovv

Thank you very very much! I'm definitely going to visit all those places. I have no other plans in sight, except visiting Versailles (couldn't do it before)


MechaWASP

Not to be a prick, but every city ever has people say this exact thing about it. I mean, Detroit at the height of its crime wave would have been defended on reddit as being "certain areas" or "on a block by block basis."


Legovogerl

Rome is so much worse. There's garbage everywhere.


Profsassypants7

I found Paris to be incredibly clean, but I did feel like the whole city is one big tourist trap which took a lot of the magic out of it. Everyone raves about French food and I didn’t think I ate particularly well in Paris, most of it was mediocre so that was very disappointing. I even asked a native Parisian for restaurant recommendations and all they gave me were really high-end, expensive suggestions which wasn’t what I was hoping for. I just struggled to feel the heart of the city, so it’s definitely a bit overrated in my books but still worth seeing at least once I think


Dr_Mickael

As a native: don't go to Paris if you want to experience anything French, except if you have a shit load of money to spend.

If you want real French food, head to the south of France 😉

maciasek94

In my country we have a saying: "traveling educates educated people." Most things, especially tourism depend on your attitude, especially historical places. Peeps are mentioning Pisa and Pisa tower being over-hyped, that city is a shithole and it's just croocked building. You can downgrade everything in that manner. What people Don't seem to notice is the engineering advancement of that complexity of the architecture and how detailed it is, the acoustics of the baptistery, or how old the cemetery is that you have gravestones from Roman times... So yeah, I would say most things are boring if you refuse to be curious about it, it is not really enough just to be there you know.


TTURedRaider06

San Francisco.


PrecedentialAssassin

Wife and I went about 20 years ago and it was incredible. By far the best thing we did was that we spent an entire day riding bikes around the city then over the bridge to Sausalito then ferried back to the wharf. We spent a day in Marin County just driving around and eating at different places. It was amazing. I went back with my son last summer to watch the Astros and Giants and wow. What a difference a couple of decades makes. I wouldn't say it's as bad as what most people say, but the charm is definitely gone. The ballpark though is incredible. Probably the best we've been to. If you're a baseball fan it's a must to go out to the bay and watch your team play the Giants.


Saintsfan_9

Yeah I’d heard good things about it, but it was honestly a hellhole with a couple nice touristy things (the wharf). I was biking there so I got to bike through the neighborhoods of “the Bay Area.” Those are nice and affluent, but as soon as you get close to the city, everything changes. Even the weather dropped like 10 degrees over the course of 10 miles of riding.

0100100110101

The leaning tower of Pisa. Pisa itself is a shithole of a town. And the leaning tower has a touristy visitors centre saying that at one point, they straightened it up a bit to make sure it wouldn't fall over completely. But then not enough tourists came, so they spent way more money putting it on an artificial lean. Also too many people trying to push you to buy touristy shit, or pick your pockets. It's just not a fun experience.


greatteachermichael

Pisa was such a disappointment. I was legit angry


0100100110101

Haha, we were angry because we had booked a hotel nearby to stay the night. Literally the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. The bedroom was barely large enough to fit a double bed. And the shower was on the wall next to the bed, There was about a square foot of tiles on the floor and a shower curtain around it to stop the water from spraying on the bed.

Vegas- Too expensive, garbage food, everything feels cheap. San Francisco- Dystopian hellscape, human feces in the streets. Palace of Fine Arts has gangster raccoons that will roll you for your sandwich and swans that will beat your ass for looking in their direction. NYC- New Yorkers are all loud, aggressive assholes, no exception. Congratulations; you have tall buildings that overlook your nasty harbor. I regret ever sharing your oxygen. Disneyland- Cheap plastic thrills for the low low price of a small car. Hollywood- No joke, it's one of the highest crime areas in Los Angeles. Fucking disgusting, bums everywhere.


PrecedentialAssassin

NYC is a hard disagree. My daughter moved there after college and I go up every now and then and love it. Central Park and Washington Square, the Met, One WTC, the clubs (she took me to my first EDM show), comedy shows, restaurants, pubs. Go to Greenwich and sit outside with a cup of coffee and just people watch. Same for Washington Square. Slip over to the West Side and spend an entire day just walking around. Find a small place with something going on and just be a part of it. Her boyfriend is from Rome and they took me to this Italian place to watch a Roma match with a bunch of Italians and that was a blast. Time's Square is a big meh. I'd say go once just to see the commotion. But otherwise, NYC is absolutely worth visiting.


OutrageousAccess6706

Not the point of this sub but anything worth seeing?


outofdate70shouse

I 100% disagree about New York. Everyone should go at least once. There’s so much to do and see. Even the touristy stuff is cool.


PersianIncision

If u think Vegas is expensive then u are truly struggling financially because it’s pretty affordable. Source: was there 2 weeks ago


hoobi47

yeah, if you go midweek in a non peak period and/or stay off the strip then you can usually find a reasonably priced room. Spend a weekend at the Bellagio during a major holiday and you'll be paying out the ass. But honestly the business model of Vegas isn't really to rip you off on lodging, but to get you gambling and keep you gambling. You can have a frugal experience there if you want, but then are you really "Experiencing Vegas?" only you can answer that question.

San Francisco - fuck that place Mahattan - it's just a rich ppl's playground now, extremely generic. Just go there for partying if you want to splurge! ​ Venice - very very touristy, unless you love the history you can easily skip it Ibiza - unless you can splurge and you have an 'in' to get your hands on the good stuff, AND there is a series of awesome gigs AND you don't mind shuffling crowds of mobile phone-holders that is...

I thought the gondolas in Venice were entirely overrated, sailing through a trash swamp didn't seem particularly romantic. Murano seemed to have its own vibe though, despite not really having anything other than a pub and some glass.

Hkmd02

Id say most of them. Tourist sites are normally arkane structures, buildings or streets. If you for instance, go see Buckingham palace, you’ll get there, see a 3 meter high black fence and some angry dudes with MP5’s behind it, and parts of the castle behind them. Then you’ll go, “well we’re here, now what?”. As dudes, we know this, but try telling that to some Disney-infused (now ex)GF and she won’t listen because she’s built up some sort of wildly unrealistic expectations. Then you get there and the exact thing you told the GF would happen, happens and disappointment ensues. A version of the above will be true for most tourist traps.


Far-Crow9752

You sound like you really tried to enrich her visit by making a “told ya so” moment. She wouldn’t abandon her, maybe naive, dreams so fuck get right? I bet it was all her fault the relationship ended.


openlyabadman

Drags you to a tourist trap= wouldn’t abandon her dreams


Far-Crow9752

Yeah? It’s one trip man. I’ll gladly spend an afternoon and evening attending a hockey game for my partner. I wear the jersey he bought me, look cute af, I make sure I contribute to or outright plan the logistics of attending it and I make the best of it for myself for his joy. Hell, I usually buy or put effort into acquiring the tickets from my work. I don’t like hockey. The crowds are not my choice spot for spending my free time. I would never go if he didn’t love it.


openlyabadman

That’s very nice of you. Still, equating dragging someone to a a tourist trap after being warned it’s a tourist trap to “not abandoning your dreams” is funny.


mBelchezere

Firstly, that's how nature intended it. So good on you! Next, you apparently received a copy of Better Partners & Lives. Where as the average female, in my experience, subscribes to, Total Bitch Quarterly. I think the last issue was the one with the insert, 100 Ways to Waste His Day Off For Him.


Far-Crow9752

I did laugh out loud as that was the first tile I’ve heard that euphemism. Thank you for that. My partner and I have done a lot of work on our relationship and had the privilege of going to therapy. Our biggest takeaway was focusing and communicating on our needs, wants and expectations. It’s helped so much.


Myeloman

Yosemite NP- it’s so clogged with tourists it doesn’t feel “wild’ in the least any more. My last visit I was accosted by “hikers” wearing flip-flops trying to walk up/down the snow covered trails to see the falls, and as they inevitably slipped they’d grab whomever was closest in their attempts to keep from falling. Yellowstone NP- Every major road is choked with stopped cars whenever there’s a bear or bison in sight, and people will leave their cars parked in the road to get closer to the animals for a photo op. Most boardwalks/trails at geysers are choked with tourists and many geysers had litter or the odd hat blown off unsuspecting heads in them where they couldn’t be easily removed. The Alamo- It’s literally one of the most underwhelming “historic” places to visit I’ve ever experienced, and nothing like what is portrayed in movies. Mt. Rushmore- If you’ve seen it in photos, you’ve seen it. It’s a small mountain with faces carved into it, and aaalllllllll the stone is just piled up at the bottom. It’s also kinda in the middle of nowhere. Don’t believe the BS about San Francisco, I live less than 100 miles from it and visit regularly and have never seen or smelled “human feces”, and only encountered a handful of unsavory homeless people. There’s plenty of fun things to see and do and I’m convinced those who disparage the City have never actually been there. Take in a ball game, watch a yacht race, see an air show during Fleet Week, wander around Ft. Point or The Presidio, Japantown, Chinatown, Golden Gate Park, beaches, Fisherman’s Wharf, Muir Woods NP and Point Reyes are just across the Golden Gate Bridge, good food, shopping etc., never seen “human feces” as I’ve said. Perhaps those who have “seen it everywhere” aren’t looking for fun things to see and do. ¯\(°_O)/¯


YoyBoy123

>Don’t believe the BS about San Francisco, I live less than 100 miles from it and visit regularly and have never seen or smelled “human feces”, and only encountered a handful of unsavory homeless people. This was the opposite of my experience. I spent 9 months travelling the US and nowhere disappointed like San Fransisco. SO many homeless people lying around everywhere that the place looked like a battlefield. Couldn't sit to eat anywhere without being harassed by beggars. The women in our group straight up refused to walk alone outside. Never seen such concentrated poverty in my life. That's not to say the beautiful parts aren't beautiful - the park, the wharf, the markets, etc. But the poverty makes it almost not worth it.


Double_Deuces_

I live about 30 minutes from Yosemite and regularly visit my family in SF. I have had similar experiences to you in my visits to the city, stepped in human feces a few times and never fail to see panhandling, don't let my girl walk alone and it's odd having to leave my car completely empty. But like you said the beautiful parts are beautiful (usually parts I find tourist-y) much like Yosemite. Just need to hit those spots and spots the locals know (something that helps with visits with all areas). Also I wear my crocs or flip flops for mild hikes all the time and see others doing so, the real issue with the park is littering and the poor fire safety of visitors (also to the national forest). Sorry I went off on a tangent I know not all of this related to your comment just the thread in general.


Confetticandi

Did you stay in the downtown? Because one of the things about San Francisco is that the slum neighborhood (The Tenderloin) is right in the middle of the downtown where all the hotels are. So visitors come here, see that outside their window or around their hotel, and that’s their impression of the city. In a lot of other cities, the really bad neighborhood with all the homelessness is not right in the middle of the tourist area.

I don't know, I still thought it was impressive. If you're not from a gigantic city and haven't seen one, it's fun to walk around and feel tiny, surrounded by skyscrapers. There's some incredible food too. Sure, it's loud and rude and constantly under construction, but I think that's just part of NYC.

Disney themeparks if you like riding rides. Biggest waste of money ever.

Portlands Shanghai tunnels is kinda boring. It may of been neat to see at one point but a lot of buildings patched over the tunnels making tons inaccessible. There is a club in a chunk of them, that’s a pretty chill spot, I don’t remember the name of the place any more, it’s been a while, may not even be there, but it was cool.

Barrel Room? I liked the seedy history of the tunnels. I agree that you are literally walking around in the dark. But imagine being knocked out and sent on a boat to a place you don’t know.

New Orleans. The only thing I found interesting was the Bayou/Swamp Life.

Visit for the pizza, stay because you got killed.

Hot dogs are amazing too. Chicago resident here. I love Chicago!

The North Side is fine. Nobody really goes west or south in chicago. Unless you need to be in Hyde Park, I guess. But otherwise, all the good stuff is on the North Side.

I agree with this as well. If you stay on the north side, you’ll be fine.

I mean almost all of them are always better in your head than in reality. It’s better to visit nature and be surrounded by natural beauty instead of human made hubris.

Athens - what a fucking dump. However, the Greek islands are paradise.

The Effiel Tower. Paris is a cool city, but the Effiel Tower is probably the least exciting part of it.

Last time I was in Paris, I saw a group of hookers around the Arc De Triumph beat up a woman. A woman mouthed off a hooker and all of a sudden about a dozen hookers appeared out of nowhere and beat her butt. Her friend dragged her away and they got in a cab while the hookers chased the cab down the street, throwing garbage at the car. Best entertainment of the night.
