New York.

Don't get me wrong, it's a nice city, but with all those people wearing 'I love NY' t-shirts, it has got to be the most 'over-rated' destination known to man !! There was an article in the paper recently where a journalist said that everyone 'should go to NY at sometime in their life'. I disagree. There's too many other (more interesting) places to visit.

It's really just another big city - slightly less 'American' than the rest of America, but still, just another big city with a McDonalds on every street corner. I'd say Chicago is my favourite American city (that I've been to), but I still wouldn't wear an 'I love Chicago' t-shirt ;)

On the other hand, I would wear a 'I love Budapest' t-shirt .. hehehe

The "London Dungeon". What a waste of time and money that was.

I actually found the Underground to be fantastic. I lived on the Picadilly/District Line for a few years and never had a problem.

I HATE the underground, esp when it's crowded and there are lots of smelly fat men on the train! URGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH! but we digress!

Most over-rated tourist destination - the Astronomy Clock in old town square in Prague. It doesn't do anything!

One word: Disneyland.

I hate to say it...I feel the same way..I did enjoy Sea World though (like that will make up for Disney bashing:( )

The problem is that you all went to DisneyLAND. Every kid knows that the real stuff is in Orlando at DisneyWORLD.
