Now that you can go to Europe for less money especially during the winter months, would it be fair to say that a different type of American tourist can be seen on the streets of London and Paris? Years ago, it really was the more affluent and cultured people who went to Europe because they simply could afford it. Now you can see more and more lower class people from the states in Europe. There are far more types wearing spandex or running suits chewing gum and holding cans of coca cola while waiting to get into the Louvre. Has the ugly American gotten uglier?
Has a different type of tourist emerged now that travel is more affordable for more people than lets say 20 years ago?
