A travel website called Far & Wide put together a list of the most BORING tourist trap in every state. A few of their best picks are: The"Full House"house in California. The "Four Corners" spot where Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico meet. The biggest frying pan in Iowa. And Nic Cage's future grave, which is a pyramid-shaped tomb, in Louisiana
For Florida though, it's a little more interesting. They named The "City of Live Mermaids" in Weeki Wachee the most boring tourist trap in Florida. Here's what they said:
It should come as no surprise that this attraction featuring a popular male fantasy (all the “mermaids” wear appropriately skimpy bathing-suit tops) peaked in popularity in the 1960s. If “Mad Men” taught us anything, it’s that the ‘60s were wholly a man’s world.
But even though its popularity has waned over the years, the City of Live Mermaids is still very much kicking, or rather swimming, today.
So I decided to look on my own to see why it was getting such a bad rap. Here's what I found....
Alright I've got mixed feelings on this. While the whole show looks extremely cheesy and hokey, it's clearly not made for me. Now if my 7 year old daughter saw this, she'd flip out. On top of that the park overall looks kinda cool. A nice place to take the family for the day. Also some of the mermaids are smoking hot.
So if this is the most boring tourist trap in Florida I'm ok with it. It could be worse, we could have the center of the universe manhole cover in Idaho....
Here are some more Mermaid videos. It's kinda fascinating and the tube they go down to start the show makes me extremely claustrophobic
