Thrillist is a website that gathers tons of news and tips about anything and everything having to do with travel. Their latest article took a deep dive into the subject of tourist traps around the globe.

They explained the difference between a tourist attraction and a tourist trap as the level of disappointment you feel after you plan a whole trip around something, only to be let down by the experience. Tourist attraction = Good. Tourist trap = Not so good.

The majority of the facts and figures came from a study done by the USA Today which analyzed over 23 million Google reviews of the 500 most popular tourist attractions in the world.

Within these reviews, they looked for terms like, "tourist trap", "overrated" and "expensive". Then they used a whole lot of math to come up with the "100 Biggest Tourist Traps in the World".

Unfortunately for South Dakota, one of our well-known "monuments-in-the-works" landed near the top of the "overrated" list.

Top Ten Most Overrated Tourist Traps in the World

  1. Four Corners Monument, Arizona
  2. Salem Witch Museum, Massachusetts
  3. Calico Ghost Town, California
  4. Crazy Horse Memorial, Black Hills of South Dakota
  5. International UFO Museum & Research Center
  6. Blue Lagoon, Grindavik in Iceland
  7. VooDoo Doughnut, Oregon
  8. Capilano Suspension Bridge, Vancouver, Canada
  9. Penang Hill, Penang in Malaysia
  10. Pike Place Market, Seattle, Washington

When it came to being an overpriced tourist location the Crazy Horse Memorial also made that list, but in 16th position.

See Some of Sioux Falls' Beautiful Murals [PHOTOS]

I was in Canton, SD, and I happened upon a new mural.

It was really cool and that got me thinking that I know of a few murals in Sioux Falls, but I bet there's more than I realize. So, I put it out on social media for the people of Sioux Falls to tell me where all the murals are!

A few of them I had never seen, or never even been to that part of town, and a few of them, I drive by all the time and never noticed!

I know a few businesses have murals inside their establishments, but I decided to keep it to murals that are totally open for the public to see. No need to be 21!

So, here we go! Let's check out some of Sioux Falls' murals.
Did I miss one? Let me know!
