Despite the effects of globalization, cities vary significantly from one another, and they are not necessarily converging. Boston, for example, is a walking city for residents and visitors alike, notwithstanding the presence of the world’s first Rouse mall at Faneuil Hall and an interconnected mall and hotel complex at Copley Plaza (Ehrlich and Dreier 1999). The streets outside these enclosures are crowded with local residents and visitors, and visitors spill over into business and residential areas far more freely than a decade ago.

Package tours demystified the place being visited by breaking it into manageable parts, each of which carried significance and meaning. By the turn of the century most major European cities had been thus interpreted through guidebooks, and guiding services had sprung up to compete with Cook. In the United States, a parallel process evolved, but local tourism entrepreneurs took the lead. Guidebooks, sketches, drawings, and photographs “coached” visitors about what to see and do.
