No. Don't be that person. Extremely frowned upon by all parties involved (faculty, grad students, attendees). And trust me, being frowned upon for an entire day will not be fun for you.
I had to check your profile to figure out where you're coming from. Okay, you're an almost guaranteed admit to top 10 programs. But you're still likely to place into a #20-#100 program 5 years later. Or your paper might be reviewed by them. Academia is a small world, people are petty and have long memories, and there isn't much leeway for being a d*ck.

If spending two days traveling to visit a school you have no interest in attending and sitting through a bunch of pointless (for you) meetings sounds like a good way to "visit a city" then there's probably nothing much anyone can say to dissuade you.
