Whether we like it or not, tourist traps are part of the landscape of America. There are countless ways that citizens could trap you into spending most of your money on something colorful, cheesy, and “unique”, making you believe that you made the purchase of your life.
But somehow, some of these traps are yet to be admired by people. It is okay, though, because we have all been through that road and we got tricked many times before, but as they say; if you never try, you will never know.
Since we want to know more about this, we have asked travel bloggers to enlighten us, and we got these 10 crazy tourist traps that are located in 10 different States, and you have to watch out for.

Fisherman’s Wharf: California
This location has a glorious history and been around since the 1800s. Fisherman’s Wharf used to be the home of the fishing fleet of San Francisco, and now it is considered as the tourism center.
Today, it is filled with street vendors hunting on tourists and a lot of overpriced junks for sale. It is still interesting to visit this location, but just watch out to not be ripped off!
16th Street Mall: Colorado
Covering more than 1.2 miles in downtown Denver, 16th Street Mall is a transit and pedestrian space that has became a tourist trap similar to Hollywood Boulevard of L.A. and New York City.
The whole place is run by many chain restaurants and stores that are offering many things that are not even related to Denver.
Fountain of Youth: Delaware
How can we still call a well that is practically dried up the well of “Youth”? It somehow shows people’s obsession over preserving their youth. It was discovered back in 1631 by the Dutch colonists of that area, and the reason behind calling it that is still unclear.
