Synopsis From the Grover Cleveland Service Area to the Beijing Museum of Tap Water to, of course, Euro Disney, 101 Places Not to See Before You Die brings you unforgettable tales of the most ill-conceived museums, worst theme parks, and the grossest Superfund sites that you'll ever have the pleasure of not visiting. Journalist Catherine Price travels the globe - and beyond - for attractions that aren't worth the trip, like Jupiter's Worst Moon, an Outdoor Wedding During the 2021 Reemergence of the Great Eastern Cicada Brood, and Fan Hours at the Las Vegas Porn Convention. With guest entries from globe trotting writers including Nicholas Kristof, Michael Pollan, Rebecca Solnit, and A. J. Jacobs, 101 Places Not to See Before You Die is filled with stories and anecdotes of misadventure to which any seasoned traveler can relate. It's also a testament to why we hit the road to begin with: to put ourselves in new and interesting situations, and to collect stories and memories that make even the worst experiences in the moment worth the trip. Irreverent and compulsively readable, 101 Places Not to See Before You Die highlights destinations we can all live without - while reminding us why we're willing to put up with the bed bugs and the food poisoning and set out to explore the world.
