Top Tips for Navigating a New City

  1. “Always forward, never back.” Meaning, if you get lost, don’t get upset and don’t turn around. Just keep going, find a new way to your destination or discover a new destination on your way. – Kerstin
  2. “I’m a planner, so I always come with some type of agenda, but we depend on Google Maps to help us navigate. We try and visit locations that we can mostly walk, but when that’s not possible, we use Uber.” – Jody
  3. “I like to run! It’s my favorite way to explore a city (and get a workout at the same time).” – Chantelle
  4. Paper Maps. They are so underrated these days! But no data fees, no zooming in on a tiny phone, and no worry that your phone is going to die.” – Danyl
  5. Bike Tours – A great way to stay active and see a lot of the city!” – Edgar
  6. Ask a local to be your tour guide – you’ll see the city in a whole new way and it’s fun for both parties” – Kerstin
  7. Plan to get a little lost. I love to walk around and find the little nooks and crannies – whether thats a small boutique, local trattoria, or a park that doesn’t make it into the guidebooks.” – Brittany
