A lot of major tourist destinations get besieged by hordes of travelers leading to resentment by the locals. This trend can be found across popular places such as Amsterdam, Venice, Berlin and Barcelona. Inconveniences such as over-crowding, noise and unruly behaviour have been commonly cited. To solve this problem, the concept of walkable urban tourism must be encouraged implying that the major destinations can all be walked along. This needs a drastic change from the current trend of preferring automobiles to concepts such as using cycles or ride-sharing. If executed successfully, favourable opinion will be built on disruptive business innovations such as Uber, Airbnb or Pokémon Go. Some examples of such holistic tourism planning can already be seen. Examples of such can be Downtown Atlanta, commercial areas in Brooklyn, suburban town centres at Pasadena in California and urban universities such as those in New York City, Philadelphia and Cambridge in Massachusetts. Such planning comes under Business Improvement District (BID) that acts on governance at the local level.
