“Times Square, New Year’s Eve.

I can’t believe people travel there just to stand around, doing nothing for hours, while doing crazy stuff themselves around strangers. I much prefer watching it on TV myself in the comfort of my own home.”

“Myrtle Beach. Jealous I never went as a kid because all my friends went every year.

I went two years ago, and holy hell, talk about a redneck dump hole. Redneck Riviera, for sure

Spend more money to go to Hilton Head.”


Wow, surprise and portrait with a black woman in shock standing on a blue background in studio. Omg, confused and face with an attractive young female looking shocked or surprised indoor.

“Branson, MO. There are several tourist traps, but the worst part is it can take 20 minutes to go three blocks. There was a lady with a walker that made more progress down the street than the traffic did.

I don’t like picking on Florida Man, but it seemed every major intersection took longer because the senior citizen with an FL license plate was trying to do something incorrectly. It’s both a family destination and a senior destination, and both groups are at extreme odds with each other.”

“Los Angeles as a whole is pretty dirty and underwhelming. The upsides are the food of any variety.

I live in LA. People picture beaches, sun, and Disneyland.

It is mostly homelessness, trash, and stuck-up people with the worst public transit system for such a large city.”


Wow, shock and discount with portrait of black woman and mockup for advertising, sale and deal. Creative, idea and omg with girl isolated on white background for announcement, secret or notification.

Wow, wtf and portrait of woman mind blown in studio by news, gossip or drama on green background. Omg, face and female model shocked, surprise and confused with open mouth emoji, hands or expression.

“Pigeon Forge, TN. It’s mostly just one long road with an offshoot that leads to Dolly Parton’s theme park. Lots of chain restaurants, goofy tourist trap things like a crime museum. I recommend just passing through Pigeon Forge and going to Gatlinburg instead.”

“The Kasbar. Believe it or not, we were taken there as part of a high school European trip. We were repeatedly warned about being kidnapped into white slavery, and two attempts were made.

We were constantly harassed by beggars. Four of the students were robbed. It’s so crowded you can’t get into the shops anyway.”

“India as a whole. Yes, there are some beautiful places there, but there are just so many people there at the exact same time as you. It’s hard to even get a look at the destinations.”
