Sometimes there just isn’t a way to travel. Life can get in the way. You read articles about how the only thing holding you back is you, and there are no excuses, and you feel yourself get tense. Whatever your reason is, I have good news for you. You can travel in your own city! If you want to take a few hours out of your day, there are plenty of things you can find.
Take advantage of tours in your area. So many cities offer walking tours, bus tours, food or wine tours etc. Find out what is offered in your area!
If you want to save a few bucks, you can also tour by yourself! Decide what you want to see, then do it! Perhaps you want to stroll through specific neighbourhoods, or check out different tourist attractions. During the summer months, festivals are also quite common.
If you live in a smaller town, thats okay too! Take the time to check out any local farmers markets and independent shops in the area. Explore a part of town you don’t typically see. Are there any free events like music in the park? Check it out! You don’t need to venture far or spend a lot in order to travel.
If you blog, be sure to write about what you see. You may be so used to your town that you don’t find much exciting about it (we’ve all been there) but someone else will love to see what you have to share! Many others haven’t had the opportunity to explore where you live, and you could be helping out potential visitors!
Have you had any success traveling through your town/city? Leave me some links below so I can read about them!
