Graceland

The King of Rock and Roll may be long gone, but Elvis' memory lives on in Technicolor at Graceland Mansion. Die-hard fans will probably pay any price to be close to the musician they adore, but the $30 entrance fee to tour just the mansion may be a bit steep for only a happy listener. Some may pay as much as $69 for a more robust tour and access to other sites used during the King's life. Plus, depending on when you go, you may have to fight hordes of star-struck fans to even see the exhibits.

What do you think?

This is only the tip of the iceberg for the world's worst tourist traps, and we realize that one man's trap may be another man's treasure. With that in mind, we would love to hear from you. What's on your list of places that are simply not worth the time and money to visit? Please tell us what you think.
