"This clever collection of travel advisories lists all the places that are definitely not worth a trip, including a rendering plant, Times Square on New Year's Eve, and, bien sûr, Euro Disney." -- Entertainment Weekly
A spirited, ingenious, tongue-in-cheek guide to some of the least appealing destinations and experiences in the world.
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 lively tales of the most ill-conceived museums, worst theme parks, and grossest Superfund sites that you'll ever have the pleasure of not visiting. Journalist Catherine Price travels the globe for stories of misadventure to which any seasoned traveler can relate--including guest entries from writers such as Nicholas Kristof, Mary Roach, Michael Pollan, Rebecca Solnit, and A. J. Jacobs--and along the way she discovers that the worst experiences are often the ones we'll never forget.
