Burlington, VT is still a gorgeous, weird place, mostly off the beaten path (unless you're on your way to Montreal). My son goes to school there so I get up a few times a year. The main pedestrian "mall" is more mall-like than it once was but the geographic limitations of town seem to keep most of the dreck in check. Can you drop a couple hundred bucks on a gourmet meal? Sure... but fingers crossed it'll hang onto some of it's weirdness and the mom & pops for a while longer. Road tripped through southern Utah and northern Arizona two years ago (as one does) and my sense was that Instagram had almost ruined every single place we stopped. I'm gaping in awe gazing out from one spectacular overlook after another.... while everyone else is taking selfies and not even looking at the view. It was like they were just "tagging" places they'd seen on social media for their own social media feed: Zion Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Horseshoe Bend near Page, Antelope Canyon, and the mother ditch of 'em all, the Grand Canyon all completely dominated by people grinning at their phones, ignoring the actual grandeur over their shoulders. Easily the most depressing part of the trip. But hey, I don't live there.
