“Brooks Falls is the centerpiece of Katmai National Park in Alaska. We were there in July during the height of the summer salmon runs, and it did not disappoint!,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Douglas Croft. “Brooks Falls is a natural barrier for the fish on their way to spawn and the bears gather there to catch and eat salmon, and fatten up for the winter. Truly an amazing place.”

“We have seen a lot of images of Grizzly bears at Brooks Falls, but this one made us stop for a moment. The bears focus enormously on the fishing — you can feel the tension in the air… And all of them look in the right direction, forming a nice composition around the waterfall.” — @natgeo photographers Orsolya & Erlend Haarberg (@haarbergphoto)

“There’s no doubt that today’s young people face enormous challenges. Still, the data tells us that they’re healthier, better educated, and have greater potential than any group of young people that’s come before—and I’m willing to bet that the generation that will transform the world into a better, more equal place has already been born. ” – @melindafrenchgates #Goalkeepers18

Can we broaden our view...even within a country?
.
We continue our #overtourism series this week by sharing some ways travelers can help combat this problem while also having better travel experiences themselves.
.
Tip #3: Visit secondary cities and regions. .
We understand the draw of wanting to visit popular destinations, marquee cities, and iconic regions. As you plan and move about, consider the less well-known or “secondary” cities and regions in or near the destination you have in mind. These may offer you a similar experience — and sometimes even a more genuine and local one — compared to the marquee destination, but with fewer crowds and often at a lower cost.
.
For example, Tuscany and the Val D'Orcia typically steal much of the limelight in the region — and for good reason, we admit. (We were married there nearly 18 years ago.) However, consider the Tuscan sub-region of Maremma. The area is less well known on the tourist trail (we learned of it thanks to a blogger living in Florence), but it features some incredibly beautiful hill towns like Pitigliano (pictured here). .
So which secondary city or region in a popular country are you curious about or have considered, but you haven’t yet taken the leap? What's keeping you? Let’s talk it out.
.
Bonus: if we've been there, we'll offer some ideas and advice.
