destinations best skipped
Of all the joys of summer, crowds are not one of them. Nor are sky-high seasonal prices and tacky, pop-up attractions and tourist traps designed for the sole purpose of separating you from your money. With this in mind, we've compiled a list of more than two dozen tourist spots that, while worthy of a visit during much of the year, are probably best avoided in summer for exactly those reasons. The list was developed with input and recommendations from tourism authorities and travel bloggers nationwide.
