How to be a tourist in your own city

COVID-19 has turned our worlds upside down, even more if you love to travel. That’s why we want to give you some advice on being a tourist in your own city. 

Avoid your everyday ways to move

If you are used to driving, take the bus! If you normally walk, rent a car! Sometimes, the best way to experience  new things is to push your way out of your comfort zones.

Try those touristy experiences you’ve never imagine to try

Book a small hostel a couple of miles from your home and have a drink with the travelers there, take dinner at a traditional place you never visited before, book that city tour you always see on your streets. You will never know what your city can offer to you if you never try it. 

Be a tour guide

Sometimes, the best way to know your city is through someone else’s eyes. You can play a tour guide for your foreign friends, or even friends from another city or state. Make a list of places you like or what you think they would  like, search for their history, maybe in the middle of your research you will discover magical places you didn’t have a clue that existed.

Food first

It is well known that food is one of the easiest ways to our hearts. If you don’t know places to go, start by looking for places to eat. Gastronomy is a good approach to any culture.

Look for popular instagram spots

Some people don’t know but instagram can give you lots of recommendations. Start by looking for your city, search for hashtags or even that cute picture a friend of you has. There are many clues of awesome places you can visit.
