Not one but three attractions in Illinois rank on a list of the biggest tourist traps and they are all located in Chicago.

A new list put out by USA Today ranked the top tourist traps around the world. They looked at cost to visit, location, and reviews, and not one, but three attractions landed on the top 100 list and one of them I don't agree with at all.

99 Cloud Gate

Also known as "The Bean." Don't get me wrong the bean is fun to go see and take a photo and cost nothing, but I agree it's not that great. It's always crowded, especially in the summer, and you see it once you are good. Again, it's a cool thing to visit at least once, but no need to visit it more than that. The bean has received over 26,000 reviews saying just that. Cool to see, but not that great.

45 Willis Tower Sky Deck

If you are not a fan of heights this is not for you. Again, another cool, fun thing to do in Chicago, and you get to see people look like ants cause you up so high. But, much like the bean, the Skydeck can get crowded, they do try to control how many people are up in the Skydeck at once, but still can get crowded. Also, it's not cheap. Depending on the day you will pay at least $35/adult. Now you do get some amazing photos, so if you're all about that then this is for you, but this is another one-time experience and you won't have to do it again for a few years.

17 Navy Pier

This is the one I don't agree with. Navy Pier is such a cool place to visit every time. You can just go and sit and watch the boats go by. You can take a boat ride, try one of the many restaurants, do a little shopping, and learn about the history of the pier. It's not overrated, in my opinion anyway, and a place we love to visit every time we go to Chicago. Plus, during the summer they have fireworks every Friday night. What's not to love?

The number one tourist trap in the world according to USA Today, Four Corners Monument in Azionia. I've never been, but I can see that. Cools to go once, but no need to visit multiple times.
