What was the most overhyped place you've traveled to?
Well, this was a long time ago so places change and grow, but my trip to Williamsburg, Virginia was disappointing. I'm from a city in Pennsylvania USA with great historical facts. A friend and I drove around and visited a few historical points of interests. These included a village depicting life back in the 1770's during the American Revolution. At that time, they were just empty vacant shacks. I know there is now great improvement with artifacts given and volunteers reacting life from that period. I would like to revisit the site someday.
The other was specific sites of battles. It was just trees and swampy looking areas with a sign posted there. I was a teenager, so I'm guessing I didn't get the true spirit of the place as I would now, as an adult who appreciates what others have done to give we Americans our freedom.
Not exactly over-hyped, but a place we would have thought would have been better than it was. Milan, Italy. I would have much rather spent an extra day in Verona, then waste a day in Milan. Dirty, full of immigrants everywhere, not as much to do and or see as we had thought. Verona was a much more friendly and beautiful town, as was Turin.
