Usually a useless but pretty, mysterious, or large place or thing that attracts tourists.

Tourist attractions are merely the most advertised or hyped elements of an area. If tourists are informed that whatever tourist attraction is somehow important, different or trendy, then it will inevitably attract tourists. The problem with tourist attractions is they generally turn into tourist trap, and lose whatever attractive traits they previously had. See: Yosemite.
