When taking a trip, we all know that planning can make the trip go smoothly and increase the fun you will have!
Some things I suggest to do before leaving home:
Print out the phone numbers and addresses of places you want to visit, such as restaurants. If you have time, obtain their hours before you leave home.
Install any applications that may help you while you are traveling. One of my favorites is Urban Spoon. This all allows you to input how much you want to spend, the food type you are seeking and where you are located. From there you receive suggestions, and the best part is you get to see other users’ ratings on the restaurants.
Print out maps or make sure you GPS software is updates.
Do an internet search for coupons for the area you are traveling to.
Contact the chamber of commerce in the area. Many times they have discount offers or coupons.
Visit your local AAA office (if you are a member) and request maps and guidebooks for your destination.
While you are away, grab brochures on things you did (and liked) and make a folder when you return home . This will make a return trip easier.
