Do we really want this?

The advertising works.
Now sites that used to be one thing are quite another. Not much point in visiting a place that is extremely crowded. Might as well just go for a 5 PM drive on the 401.

Locally, don't even think of visiting Algonquin Park in the fall color season, on a weekend especially. You have to make an advance reservation and then share the place with thousands of others, all viewing the same leaves. Better to just go for a drive "out of the park". Colored leaves are the same and no entry fee is needed.

Tourism gets crushed by it's own success but that does not slow down the marketers.
