SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- If you're planning a trip to Big Sur, you might want to think twice. Fodor's Travel has added the popular tourist destination to its list of places you should avoid in 2020.

The publication says "over-tourism" is one of the reasons for their decision. Fodor's also blamed illegal camping, writing that "locals lament in the lack of public bathrooms and the disgusting roadside consequences."
