Tips for Getting to Know the Best Parts of Your CityJanuary 29, 2018
When you are used to your city, you do not necessarily think about your tourist. And yet, you risk missing fabulous corners, which deserve to be seen. We give you some tips!
When you travel to another city or country, you first go to the tourist office to take leaflets. From there, we visit the monuments, we ride a riverboat, and we do activities. So why not do the same thing in your own city?
Then you can play the new technologies. Indeed, do not hesitate to ask your smartphone the right addresses. Help yourself from Siri or Google Now, for example. Ask your smartphone what to do, what to eat, etc. Obviously, this technique does not work every time, but it can help you to find yourself in a place that was unknown to you, and in front of which you spend every day.
Always with new technologies, you can refer to social networks. Take the Instagram example: the modern postcard. Indeed, thanks to the “#”, you can find everything that happens in a specific city. You will be able to find pictures of places, restaurants, small beautiful places that you do not necessarily know.
You can also take a look at TripAdvisor in mobile application, for example. You will be able to play the geolocation to find around you, the good addresses of your city. In addition, use comments to classify good deals.
You can also visit a local blog, which can help you find rare pearls. We invite you to visit Google, and type in your city name. It’s a good tip to have information, ideas for walks, restaurants or places to see. Do not hesitate to take a look for good deals.
When you go out, or meet new people, do not hesitate to discuss with them the nice places they know, restaurants they advise you, or simply offer them to see them in the place of their choice. It is by opening to others that you will open on the city.
Otherwise, you can play it, the old way, while strolling. Leave room for the unexpected, and walk. Do not put GPS, take different paths than usual, and let yourself go. Look up and look around; you will fall, inevitably on rare pearls.
These few tips will allow you to see your city from a new angle. That you lived there since 10, 20, 30 or 50 years that does not change anything. You have nooks that you do not know and that are worth seeing. That’s why, do not hesitate to take out your nose and start the adventure!
