Is there such a thing as overmarketing?

Recently, there was a report on NPR about Flagstaff getting too crowded during the snow season.

Then I recalled a trip to Yosemite where we couldnt even park to watch the wonderful sights. We had to drive through. Most cars were CA numberplates.

Is instagram crowd ruining nature a case of overmarketing?

If something diminshes an amenity, then it is overmarketed. Without RSVP, there will never be enough food to go around in a party.

In come ‘permits’. Vermillion Cliffs. Statue of Liberty and so on.
