Step 2: Ask a local Get away from overpriced and underwhelming tourist traps by asking a friendly local resident where they like to go for good food and entertainment. Step 3: Find events Browse online or request information from official visitor sites to find out what events are taking place during your visit. Tip Make reservations or buy tickets ahead of time if possible, or consider traveling in the off-season when popular attractions won't be so packed. Step 4: Seek out new things Seek out new places and cultures you don't have in your hometown. Visit a museum, try an ethnic restaurant, enjoy the performing arts, go to a major league ball game, or take your picture by a historic marker.
