Vacationing for the Masses

Even villains long for a bit of a get-away now and again, riding the rails to their secret lairs; sunning themselves casually by the pool with a mai tai, sorting out their plots for world domination, reading absurdly long New Yorker articles; snorkeling from time to time.

Apparently, though, the rest of the world prefers to travel en masse, all going to the same destinations. According to the American Society of Travel Agents, for the socially, er, challenged, the North American places to avoid are as follows:
