United States of America Tourist Traps: 44 reviews and 24 photos
Everyone has their own style of traveling and certainly everyone has different expectations about what they want to see and do in a particular place. One person just has to do that carriage ride around Central Park in NYC and another snickers at the absurdity of paying so much when a walk would accomplish "the same thing." I've certainly spent my life in the latter category but if everyone did the same thing, we'd all be traveling in a very crowded place with the result that we would all be subjected to a huge tourist trap.
Unique Suggestions: As with most things in life, the earlier you get somewhere, the less crowded it is. Plain and simple: most people want to sleep in when on vacation so if you get up early, you'll have even the most crowded places sometimes all to yourself.
Fun Alternatives: Look for a spot perhaps a little bit away from the "main" viewing area. Even in the Grand Canyon, just a few hundred yards can mean the difference between a scrum and a relatively peaceful sunset.
