Travel Tip of the Day: Visit the Local Tourism Office

Visit the Local Tourism Office
My buddy Nomadic Matt (BTW: He has a New York Times Best Seller travel book out) just tweeted this tip: “Always visit the local tourism office. They’ll point you to the free activities, and special events happening during your stay.” Matt’s right, and although I’ve done this many times, I’d never thought of making it a tip. Thanks Matt!

  1. To tag on to Nomadic Matt’s tip – I bet people would be surprised if they decided on a “stay”cation and contacted the tourism office IN THEIR OWN TOWN (or nearby city). I bet a lot of people would walk away mumbling “Why didn’t I know about this 20 years ago!!??”

  2. I wonder if there is a on-line or other listing of the location of tourism offices for various or all locations. I don’t believe I have ever seen one in my travels over the last 50 years.
