Travel Like a Local: 9 Ways to Enrich Your Vacation By Experiencing Things Like a Local

Stepping out of the tourist traps and seeing a destination from a local perspective helps enrich our experiences. These are some of the things I do to make the most of my vacation destination:

  • Eat at the local's favorite restaurants.
  • Hop on a bus or train to get around.
  • Ask locals to recommend their favorite destinations or activities.
  • Use a paper map and walk the long way to your destination.
  • Hire a driver for a day or two and ask them to take you to the best local destinations.
  • Have a picnic in a park.
  • Take time to people watch or strike up conversations with locals.
  • Find a local tour guide or experience through Airbnb.
  • Use Like A Local site and app to connect with locals for recommendations or even a meetup.
