Most Overrated: Mount Rushmore

That's right. According to Far and Wide, one of America's most iconic landmarks is the most overrated spot in the entire state. Why? Well, they explain how access was limited to certain parts of the monument late last year due to construction. But by all accounts, the 8 million dollar renovation project is now completed, so in my opinion, this doesn't make it overrated at all.

Most Underrated: The Badlands

This one's hard to argue with. The badlands are a beautiful and majestic place everyone should visit at least once. According to Far and Wide, the badlands are not only the perfect destination for a scenic drive but also hiking as well.

For the state of Iowa, they list the most overrated as the Iowa State Fair and the most underrated as Adventureland. In Minnesota, the most overrated is the Mall of America (hard to argue) and the most underrated is the Boundary Waters. And in Nebraska, they have Chimney Rock as the most overrated and the Omaha Zoo as the most underrated.
