Maybe we blame “influencers” a little too much.
Okay, probably not, but the blame for overtourism can’t lay solely in their selfie-snapping hands. It takes a world of people to make a destination painful to visit, and if it wasn’t for throngs of people flocking to the same places their friends went, overtourism might not be an issue. Perhaps the key in keeping the crowds down is finding other, comparable destinations that offer the same sights, food, and foreign experiences without the masses. We conferred with the editors from Hideaway Report, and they offered up some worthy alternatives to seven of summer’s most crowded places.
