Ditch Your Itinerary and Explore

This is a great quick guide on exploring a city in a more spontaneous and fun way than just rushing between pre-planned sites. Explore and have fun!

πŸ‘‰ How to ditch an itinerary and discover a city

  • Research, ask around — ask your Uber driver, check local Instagram accounts
  • Be present — look around, pay attention to signs
  • Map a Google map — Yes! I always do this on a big trip. It’s fun and helpful. (NYC example)
  • Avoid making reservations — give yourself some flexibility
  • Walk different routes — go one way, come back the other way

I also liked that the cover art and some of the story mentions Austin as an example, mentioning legit local places like the Hope Outdoor Gallery and Caffe Medici. πŸ˜€
