Have you lived in a city for many years and ever stumbled upon a new spot, seen a new store, or discovered a new restaurant? If the answer is yes, it's the most thrilling feeling. Even though you think you've been everywhere in your city or town, there are still places that need to be explored.
Local travel is a great way to get to know your community, nearby towns or cities. Most travellers seek exotic countries, remote places, and unique experiences. However, local travel is the best means to get a more raw, real, and authentic travel experience with much cheaper costs.
There should always be something close-by that you can look forward to or take advantage of. With local travel, it does not mean you always have to stay somewhere overnight. There are many things you can look into and discover locally. You can take a one-day trip to a nearby city or hike local paths where you will meet no one but people living in the area. You can also discover new biking paths, scenic views, hidden waterfalls. Local travel also provides opportunity to give back to your community. Going strawberry or apple picking; seeing local zoos and bee farms helps you experience the best of your city.
Overall, when you travel locally, you have more opportunities to feel relaxed while solely focusing on the chosen experience.
COVID-19?... just travel locally, you won't regret it.
