Wander-friendly tips in a new city
As mentioned in Men’s Journal’s piece, “5 Simple Tips for Exploring a New City Without Getting Lost”, you don’t need to put yourself at risk by getting hopelessly lost in a new place. Not only does it waste time, but it can also be harmful! Stay safe with these tips:
- Take a guided tour: Offered with a discount in most hotels, you can get a feel for the main sights and landmarks with a group and make sure that you at least recognize a few things if you are wandering later.
- Travel with a card from your hotel: If you need to ask for directions, knowing the civic address of your hotel can really make the difference. Always have one or two on you.
- Climb to new heights: Get a bird’s eye view by climbing up high somewhere and getting a feel for the city’s layout. Knowing the number of blocks and the general direction can help when you are in the middle of a jungle!
