Today I have an oddball selection of images from various vintage tourist attractions from around the USA.
Ringling Bros. Circus had its winter headquarters in Sarasota, Florida (notice the cypresses covered with Spanish moss in the background). This photo from the 1950's shows a woman posing next to a wonderful antique circus wagon, with carvings evoking India and the elephants found there.
From 1967, here's a closeup of the sign that you saw when entering Santa's Workshop, which is at the North Pole. New York, that is! If you look closely you can just see the ghosts of old words on the sign, it appears to say something to the effect of "Home of Santa's Workshop NORTH POLE".
Here's a photo from 1961, showing a corner of Silver Dollar City, found in the Ozarks (near Branson, Missouri). The park had opened only about a year earlier (May 1, 1960). Nearby Marvel Cave with its beautiful natural caverns had been a tourist attraction for many years, but Silver Dollar City is now a typical theme park with a western atmosphere. There are flume rides, roller coasters, and all kinds of amusements.
