24 Tourist Attractions That No Longer Exist

You’re used to all the vloggers, instagram posts, and articles telling you about all the places you should visit, but what about the places you can’t go to anymore? Here’s some of the most popular tourists attractions that don’t even exist anymore. If they ever did. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr Watch our "Evidence That Aliens HAVE Visited Earth " video here:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iL227eb9FSI Watch our "CRAZY Ideas That Actually Worked!" video here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0n2wEAiOcg Watch our UNBELIEVABLE Items Found After Tsunamis !" video here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNNLwdBI7Gk 19. Pioneer Cabin Tree Once upon a time, people use to be able to walk underneath the Pioneer Cabin Tree, which used to be found at the Calaveras Big Trees State Park in California. No one knew its exact age, but it was estimated to be over 1,000 years old. It had a circumference of 33 feet or 10 meters and was nicknamed “the Tunnel Tree.” For years, it was apparent that the tree was weakening. In 2017, a powerful rain storm took down the tree, causing it to shatter when it fell to the ground. 18. The Sutro Baths The old saltwater swimming pool complex known as the Sutro Baths were built back in 1896. Exactly 70 years later, it burned down. If you look over the coast of San Francisco near the famous Seal Rocks and Cliff House, you can still make out the ruins of the public establishment. Former mayor and millionaire Francisco Adolph Sutro had the pool built with 7 seawater pools and included natural history halls and displays of fine art. 17. Wedding Cake Rock Look at this photo. It certainly looks like a slice of a white sheet cake, doesn’t? Therefore the name “Wedding Cake Rock” seems more or less appropriate. Despite the cheery name, however, Australia’s famous sandstone rock formation had to be closed due to concerns of danger to visitors. About 10,000 people used to visit Wedding Cake Rock, or White Rock, every year before they installed a fence and made regulations much more strict ever since 2015. 16. Dadipark This park in Belgium was built in 1950 and was meant to be a playground for the children. About 30 years later, it would begin to feature amusement park rides. Dadipark was originally meant to entertain the children of people on their pilgrimage to the local basilica and then would be open to tourists after its renovation. The rides were said to have gotten more and more dangerous. By 2002, the park closed to be madeover with safer rides, but it has since remained closed. 15. Chacaltaya Glacier It proves a treacherous journey to be able to reach the top of the Chacaltaya mountain in Bolivia. Still, outdoor adventurers still took it upon themselves to reach the only ski resort in the country and used to be the highest lift-served ski area in South America. It never got too popular, but if you never visited before, you can’t anymore since the glacier started to retreat and then eventually just melted. Rising temperatures recorded in the 90s seemed to be the start of the glacier’s disappearance. 14. The Old Man Of The Mountain You could call it the Great Stone Face, The Profile, or the more common Old Man of the Mountain. No matter what your preferred nomenclature was, what stays the same is how it doesn’t exist anymore. You see that piece of rock jutting out the side of that mountain? It used to be way more prominent. Its shape was once featured on the New Hampshire quarter since it was so iconic to the state. It would collapse in 2003.

Chicago Travel - How to Get Around - 5 Ways

Chicago PROMO CODES: • Uber – Type “uberLizFay” in the app for $5 off your first ride. • Via – Type “elizabeth4y4” in the app for $10 off your first ride. • Lyft – Type “elizabeth864459” in the app for free rides. • SpotHero – Sign up through https://refer.spothero.com/s/Lizzy for $7 off. • ParkWhiz – Sign up through http://ssqt.co/m5eej1c for $5 off. Feel free to use my codes above for free rides and discounted parking, and we’ll both get credits! Follow me @heylizzyfay on Facebook & Instagram! It’s easy to get around Chicago without a car. Here are my five favorites ways, and the apps that make transportation in the Windy City a breeze. Be sure to visit http://lizzyfay.com/ for more information and advice about Chicago! Thanks to Ismael Cossyleon for help shooting this video. Apps • Ventra – For the L trains and buses. • Via – On-demand car service. • Uber – On-demand car service. • SpotHero – Discounted parking • ParkWhiz – Discounted parking • Google Maps – Helpful for direction on L trains 1. The L This stand for “elevated train.” Chicago has 144 rail stations throughout the city, and they are relatively easy to navigate – especially with help from Google Maps. I’m a big fan of using the L to beat traffic. a. Cost: $2.25 per ride. It’s cheaper if you get a pass. b. Pro Tip: If you are coming from O’hare, the Blue Line will take you right downtown. Take the Orange Line if you’re coming from Midway Airport. 2. Water Taxi During the warm months, you can cruise to many of the city’s top tourist spots by boat. The Chicago Water Taxi or Shoreline Water Taxi will take you to places like Michigan Avenue, China Town, and the Museum Campus. You’ll take in beautiful views of Chicago’s architecture along the way. a. Cost: $10 day passes are available. b. Pro Tip: Go at sunset for a spectacular view. 3. On-Demand Car Service Download the Uber and Via apps to order a car on-demand. Prices are cheaper than a taxi, and it’s super convenient. Via offers black car service throughout downtown for a flat fee of $3.95, although there’s a chance you’ll be carpooling with someone headed in the same direction. ** 2018 update: Via now offers rides in all cars (not just black) and different price points. Still an affordable option! a. Pro Tip: If you’re taking Uber from the airport, go to the designated ride-sharing pickup area. At Midway, it’s the Departures level at door UL1. At O’Hare, it’s upstairs at Departures. *Note Via now offers standard car service and private rides. It is not limited to shared black cars. b. Tip 2: Use a promo code to ride for free (see mine at the end), and then share your own code with friends to rack up free rides. 4. Bike Rent a bike and ride around the city. Take advantages of Chicago’s 18-mile lakefront trail that goes to the Museum Campus. The new 606 path is a popular place to bike as well. Check out routes here: ChicagocompleteStreets.org. Bike rentals: Divvy or Bike and Roll. a. Cost: $10-$36. b. Tip: Bike and Roll offers helmets, Divvy does not. 5. Walk Chicago is a walkable city, so get outside and explore! The new Riverwalk is a great place to start. a. Pro Tip: Use Google Map’s walking tab for directions by foot. 6. Parking Download the ParkWhiz or SpotHero apps. They’ll locate available parking spots for you at a discounted rate. Use a promo code (mine is below) for even greater savings. Pro Tip: Stick to #1-5. Bringing a car downtown is unnecessary. My Promo Codes You can likely find promo codes online, but feel free to use mine and we’ll both get credits. Teamwork! (High five) • Uber – Type “uberLizFay” in the app for $15 off your first ride. • Via – Type “elizabeth4y4” in the app for $10 off your first ride. • SpotHero – Sign up through https://refer.spothero.com/s/Lizzy for $7 off. • ParkWhiz – Sign up through http://ssqt.co/m5eej1c for $5 off.

The following travel video is a comprehensive list of the best 35 Things to do in Chicago including all of the top Attractions worth visiting and seeing in this complete travel guide for the Windy City.
Many people don't realize this but Chicago is a world class city with festivals, arts, entertainment, dining and architecture that can rival any city in North America or even Europe. The only other city that I think can compare with Chicago - in terms of attractions - in America is New York. Whether you're scarfing down Chicago style deep dish pizza or taking in a Blues festival you'll find no shortage of things to do in the city. If you're a sport fan there are no shortage of professional teams to follow at any time of the year including the Chicago Blackhawks, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bears and the Chicago Bulls. When you're thinking of destination to travel to in the United States, Chicago should be near the top of your list. I guarantee that you'll have a lot of fun:
