Happy New Year and welcome back to the Like a Local Travel Blog. This year is going to be a little different. I’ve always focused on the fun travel experiences or tips for planning your next big adventure, but after some great Instagram DM’s, I’ve decided to make this year all about Traveling Your Town. Don’t worry, I’ve got some great adventures planned for 2018 that are sure to inspire you to get out there and see the world.
What Does It Mean To “Travel Your Town”
The concept is simple, see the city you live in. Like really see it. We all get in a rut, going to the same handful of places to eat and drink, but your city has so much more to offer and I’m going to help you find it. No I cannot feature every single city in the US, but what I can do is show you ways to find the information for yourself. I promise to make everything super simple, so whether your planning your next date night or weekend trip you’ll find something exciting in your own town
After much discussion in the Schuyler home, we’ve come up with our main travel locations of 2018. We will be going to Breck CO in January, Maui and Oahu in February, Moab sometime, London late August and Disney World early November. We also plan on traveling our town by going snow shoeing somewhere, eating at new places in Denver, taking a local sites road trip and hiking to hanging falls.
I don’t know about you but I love travel books. Yes, I want to see a new city or my own like a local, but you also want to hit the main tourist attractions. As your first step towards traveling your town get a travel book for your city (or large near by one) and a one for your state. I love the Top 10 DK Travel books, because they fit in your bag, come with a map and are detailed without being long winded.
Leave me a comment below with your thoughts.
Where are you going this year? Have you been to one of the cities on my list? What are your local suggestions?
