The Most Interesting Place In Your State

Redditor Midwester looked up each state on Wikipedia, and grabbed the first item under “points of interest” to compile this U.S. map of the most interesting place in each state. I was surprised to realize how many of these I have actually been to. Large size here. 

Then a day later, he came up with a second map, this time using number counts for the most popular attraction in each state. Large size here. As you can see, they don’t match with Wikipedia’s “points of interst." I like the first map better. Land Between the Lakes is nice, but it's mostly in Tennessee, and only really enjoyable if you have a boat or a vacation home. Mammoth Cave is awesome! -via Uproxx

Navy Pier is the LEAST interesting place in Illinois. Even the water treatment plant next door is more interesting. (Actually, it is: it's the world's largest.)

These "facts" are picked by tourists.

The San Antonio River Walk is indeed a nice place. It's quite romantic, especially at night. My wife and I have enjoyed its ambiance.

The battlefield park at Vicksburg is also great. It's my favorite Civil War battlefield park.

Crazy Horse Memorial in the black hills has Mt. Rushmore beat HANDS DOWN. Rushmore = lame! it's just like looking at a postcard. Crazy horse is a lot more inspiring, informative, and just better art
