With international travel still generally out of the picture, many people use the time on their hands to discover the beauty of their own country. If you’re running out of popular attractions to explore, use these tips to discover lesser-known attractions of your home country.

Proper Research

Every trip starts with research, and you should do your best to learn as much as you can about the place you’re heading to. Don’t stop at using Google—Instagram, Pinterest, and travel blogs can be an amazing source of travel inspiration.

Roam Around

One of the best ways to find out more about a new city is to get lost in it. By roaming around, you’ll stumble upon dozens of nice spots that didn’t show up in your Google search, and this will make you appreciate them even more.

Locals Know Best

If you don’t have enough time on your hands to roam around and discover the beauty of a new area on your own, asking friends for some pointers is always a good idea. Perhaps your friends have insider knowledge and will be happy to share it with you.
