In this guide, we’ll share our top tips for how to travel locally so you can explore the best of your home country.
Your local tourist board website usually has events and programs in your home town and surrounding areas.
Not only is Instagram good for inspiration, but most photos have a geotag so you know where they’ve been taken. Search for your home city e.g. #Sydney and check out the stream.
Foursquare is a location based check-in social network which has become a good resource of getting tips and suggestions from locals. It works by users leaving feedback on where they’ve eaten, had a drink, chilled out at a cafe etc.
We love getting travel advice from other locals. They can tell you when specials are on, where to find deals and the best times to visit certain places.
It doesn’t mean driving for miles, we may simply visit the neighboring cities, but it allows us to explore more of what’s nearby without having to travel far.
