Escaping Mass Tourism

Photo: dungbeetletours.comAfter spending time in Orlando and Miami this week I couldn't help thinking about the migration of the Wildebeest in East Africa and the scene where the herds are jumping the Mara river greeted by Alligators. For Tourists in Florida, the equivalent of the river crossing are Disneyworld and Miami South Beach. Predictable streams of masses seem to be irresistible to take advantage of. Disney takes care of both sides of the equation: shepherding large crowds through the parks as well as the Alligator part, catching them with very steep prices, e.g. in restaurants or souvenir shops. Also Miami South Beach is a very crowded place for what it is. Yes, it is pretty but unfortunately it has become a traffic-jammed cliche well short of it's promise. Cliches attract huge crowds. I believe things are starting to change - for the first time after many visits to Florida I had a genuinely good time there thanks to using social tools like Yelp and Tripadvisor. I could confidently stay outside the beaten path, found wonderful neighborhoods, had great food and interesting conversations.
