17 American Attractions That Not Even Americans Want to Visit

The United States of America—land of the free, home of the brave, and the location of some of the most ‘unique’ tourist attractions you’ll ever lay eyes on.

Get ready to chuckle, scratch your head, and maybe even facepalm as we look at 17 American attractions that not even Americans think are worth visiting. 

The World’s Largest Ball of Twine, Kansas

Let’s kick things off with the World’s Largest Ball of Twine in Kansas. Sure, it’s big and it’s made of twine, but is it really worth a detour? Chances are, even locals haven’t been there more than once—if at all!

You’d think standing in four states at once would be pretty cool. Well, once you get to this desolate attraction, you’ll realize it’s pretty much just that—a spot to stand. Most Americans prefer their geography a bit more exciting.

Wall Drug, South Dakota

Wall Drug is known as the mecca of highway billboards. Advertised for hundreds of miles, but once you arrive, it’s basically a glorified gift shop. Even the free ice water doesn’t make it a must-visit.

Winchester Mystery House, California

If you’re into never-ending staircases to nowhere, then this is the place for you. Though it’s a quirky kind of eerie, most Americans prefer their spooky spots to actually be haunted.

South of the Border, South Carolina

Bright lights, cheap souvenirs, and giant sombreros! It seems tempting, but once you arrive, it quickly dawns on you—it’s essentially a jazzed-up rest stop. Most would be tempted to just rev up and move on.

The Fountain of Youth, Florida

Hate to burst your bubble, but sipping from this fountain won’t rewind the clock. It turns out, it’s more fairy tale than magical experience. Let’s just say, if you’re looking for enchantment, you might want to keep searching.

The Corn Palace, South Dakota

Corn on the cob is great, but a palace made of corn is not as appetizing or exciting as it sounds. It’s one of those “see it once, never again” kind of places.

Roswell, New Mexico

Aliens or not, Roswell doesn’t offer much beyond its UFO museum. After one visit, even the most die-hard conspiracy theorists tend to say, “Beam me up from here!”

Carhenge, Nebraska

Stonehenge is legendary; Carhenge, on the other hand, falls a bit short.Though classic cars are generally loved, stacking them to imitate an ancient landmark doesn’t capture everyone’s interest.

The Mystery Spot, Michigan

Another vortex, another letdown. It’s not that it’s terrible; it’s just that it’s not as exciting as it claims to be. Most people would rather save their time and money.

The Thing, Arizona

It’s called “The Thing” for a reason – a classic American enigma that’s losing its appeal. You won’t know what it is until you see it, and even then, you’ll wonder why you stopped..

Dollywood’s Splash Country, Tennessee

Dolly Parton may be a gem, but her water park? Let’s just say it’s not making waves. Other parks seem to offer much more splash for your cash.

Metropolis, Illinois

You would think a town named after Superman’s city should be exciting. Wrong. Apart from a Superman Museum and a large statue, it’s just another small town.

The Cabazon Dinosaurs, California

The idea of massive dinosaurs in the middle of the desert has a certain allure, doesn’t it? But the actual experience leaves something to be desired. Unless you’re in the under-10 age bracket, the thrill fizzles out fast

Lucy the Elephant, New Jersey

Lucy the Elephant has the charm of being unusual but falls short of breathtaking. Generally considered a one-time visit kind of place, it’s more novelty than must-see marvel.

London Bridge, Arizona

Yes, it’s that London Bridge, but in Arizona. While it’s an interesting piece of history, it just feels out of place and makes you miss the Thames.

Foamhenge, Virginia

Foamhenge offers a lighthearted take on the iconic Stonehenge, but it quickly loses its novelty once you see it in person. Most people prefer the real thing or nothing at all.
