QueenMamaBee: I didn't think Vegas was all that bad. I was far more disappointed by Philly than I was Vegas.


Why the hell did you have expectations for Philly?

WHA?

Gamble, see a show, eat. That's about it. I can do the latter two in more interesting places where it's not 104°, and toss my money in the garbage anywhere.

BTW, contrary to popular belief, "companionship" is not legal in that part of the state. That apparently isn't enforced, but I can save the price of a plane ticket and do Subby's mom instead.

Rapmaster2000: Eskaminagaga: The places that i have been dissapointed with are Boston, St. Louis, Baltimore, and Busan.

What if I have really low expectations for St. Louis and Baltimore?


Here, I'll help with Baltimore.

You know who got so sick and tired of Baltimore he decided to hit the road?

John Waters.

/now, that's saying something

germ78: Sybarite: fireclown: A better approach to this thread would be "What is someplace that really farking delivers.".

I'll start:  The Taj Mahal.  Yeah, it's crowded, and traveling in India is not without it's problems, but the thing is freaking gorgeous, and on top of it the unique combination of Hindu and Muslim architecture makes it all the cooler.

GO!


Bali, Indonesia. Some of the most amazing beaches and best snorkeling I've ever experienced. Descriptions and pictures are inadequate to the beauty of the place. The second time I went I did a bicycle tour which took me to some really awesome places you don't see if you simply stick to the beaches (which I don't blame anyone for).

Alcatraz Island in San Francisco has a reputation among Bay Area locals for being a tourist attraction that does not suck. I highly recommend the audio tour.


there is no way i would be able to do the alcatraz tour without thinking about phil hartman as the tour guide

Gulper Eel: Orlando turns parents into idiots. My normally-sensible wife wants us to do a family trip to Disney World some summer and all I can think is "Florida in July? How about NO."

Seriously, screw Disney. If you've got little kids take 'em to Story Land or Santa's Village up in New Hampshire. It's way cheaper, it's not usually stupid hot, it's fairly uncrowded except for the North Conway outlet strip, and there's a lot of other things to do other than watching your wallet get hoovered.


We did Disney World in October when I was 17. It was hot as hell for a couple of days, but not too bad the rest of the week. However, my allergies were not really controlled back then and so I had sinus issues from flying in which meant I was pretty miserable after some of the rides, and I avoided others I had really wanted to go on, so that kinda sucked. However, that was a minor annoyance compared to my mother, who made herself the Task Master, and pretty much dragged us place to place at a rate that took a lot of the joy out of everything. And sadly that's like 80% of what I remember from that trip. I'm hoping to get back there one day with the husband so I can actually enjoy the whole trip, but it's behind a few other trips we'd like to make.

And my aunt (mom's sister) took her son to Disney World as soon as she felt he was old enough to enjoy it - I think he was four at the time, but maybe a little older. She and my grandmother dragged the kid to parks for a couple hours a day before he'd beg to go back to the hotel. Because, for him, the highlight of the whole damn trip was the hotel swimming pool.

kdawg7736: Niagra Falls does not surprise me. The American side really is boring. Disney World will really get my parents going since they love that place.

I will just stick to the many relaxing beaches the East Coast has to offer. Best ones in my opinion are Ocean City, MD, Outer Banks, NC, and Myrtle Beach, SC.


That was a troll, right?

MB is like one big theme park.  And the theme is white trash.

DrPainMD: List fails without Bourbon Street. Yeah, the bars are cool, but they're crowded. The food is awesome, but the entire French Quarter smells like fermenting vomit and rotting urine. And check for an adam's apple on that hot chick who wants to blow you.


Why would you do that?  Don't ask questions you don't want the answer to.

Some people are disappointed no matter where they go.  And they are surprisingly prolific about it.

GO!

Anywhere in Yellowstone about 200 yards from the parking lot.  The place is unique and impressive and you can have so much of it to yourself because most of the people there are only walking the 50 yards from the parking lot to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Old Faithful, Mammoth Springs, and the Lower Geyser Basin.  They barely even go in the Norris Basin.


I have a theory that even if you are in a tourist spot, walking a quarter mile from the main drag puts you in a whole different, (and apart from Baltimore) a generally better world.  If I get to Yellowstone, I'd like to take a few days and do some proper backpacking.

Jamieboy: Gibraltar is a total rip.  But if you are in the neighborhood, by all means give it a look.  Same for the Temple Bar in Dublin.  Just keep one hand on your wallet and the other on your junk in both places.

I had a blast in Vegas one of the days I was there.  We piled into a rental car, drove all the way down Las Vegas Blvd until it ended beside the interstate.
We came to a fork in the road:
To the left a paved road to a small collection of trailers.  Years later I found out that this is the closest legal brothel to Las Vegas and is pretty much there so hookers have a place to claim they work.  At the time we assumed it was a small town with a meth-based economy.  Both statements are probably true.

To the right, a nondescript dirt road leading out to the desert.

We turned right.  We saw the grand canyon, the hoover dam, and made it to California.  We were on dirt almost the entire time.  At one point the US Army turned us around and gave us a stern warning.

I assume we are no longer welcome at the Las Vegas Hertz Rental Cars.

Most people don't vacation to relax or enjoy themselves. They just want pictures to prove they were there.
