‘When experiencing a new location, we often want new experiences, as well,’ says Jeanette Bunn of Travel To Go. One of the more memorable experiences about a new location is the food that you find while there. The cuisine at a new location can leave a big impression of what we think of the destination, and can sometimes make or break a good impression. If looking for good places to eat is on the agenda, here are some good tips for locating those local favorites.
Do some research online before visiting. With social media being a powerful method of spreading information, there’s a big chance that a reputable company has written a review of award-winning restaurants. Jeanette Bunn believes that using this method to find restaurants around the area that will be visited will be helpful, as it would make for planning the trip a lot easier, as well.
- Ask the locals. If a place is popular, they’re most likely going to be talking about it. Local restaurants with good food don’t go forgotten by those who live there, and it’s guaranteed that asking people who live in a certain city will yield positive results when it comes to finding a good restaurant. If more than one local recommends the same restaurant, chances are that it’s the one to visit!
- Some smart phone apps are good for finding local restaurants to visit. They’ll tell you how far away they are, give a list of reviews from people who ate there, and even give the full menu and pictures of the food. Travel To Go Executive, Jeanette Bunn feels that this can be helpful for getting in-depth info about a recommended restaurant or just help with finding the next local hot-spot for a great dining experience.

Road trips are always a blast. Whether its with friends or family, there’s something about being in a car with them for a long period of time to head to a vacation hot-spot that puts a smile on one’s face. Though they’re not as fast as taking a plane, they’re certainly more cost-effective, and they can be a lot more fun. However, you always want to be sure that you are prepared for any trip, so here are some tips to make the road trip go a bit smoother.
- Bring plenty of ways to stay entertained. Make some playlists full of music you all love, bring movies for any back seat passengers (especially if they’re kids that will get rowdy without some sort of entertainment) or bring some games that could easily be played in a car. You may have a long drive ahead of you, and if all of the travelers are bored, Jeanette Bunn Travel To Go President says that it will make that long drive seem even longer.
- Bringing your own food will not only help food cost while on the road, but it can also shave off some of the travel time. Unless you have a specific place you like to go and eat when you’re traveling, bringing your own food will allow you and your travel companions to stay full without breaking the bank, and without having to make too many stops.
- Keep everything you may need close to you, rather than storing it in the back of the car. It’s never fun when you have to reach way into the back of the car just because the driver needs a water bottle, so to make things more convenient for everyone. Jeanette Bunn Travel To Go President recommends keeping items close so you don’t have to almost jump out of your seat just to grab one little thing.

Jeanette Bunn Travel To Go President knows that fall family vacations will be the highlight for many people this year. However, those with young children should be prepared so that they can travel with ease when they go on their vacations. If you take some extra steps you and your kids will both be able to enjoy the perfect family vacation throughout the whole travel process. Here are some tips to help you plan and allow you all enjoy your vacation.
When you are flying with your infants be prepared. Their little ears are very sensitive to air pressure and if parents can bottle-feed them during take-off and landing, it sure will ease the pain of the air pressure on their sensitive ears. Also having snacks and beverages on hand not only helps defuse a tantrum but, can save some money in expensive airport shops
If you plan on traveling near a holiday like Thanksgiving, get your accommodations in advance especially on a family vacation, as during the peak season it can become a problem to book in suitable accommodations. Moreover, you have to plan your sightseeing tours in such a way that your little ones do not tire out. A long sightseeing day is not always fun for young children and that makes it not fun for the parents. Jeanette Bunn Travel To Go President says that integrating playtime during the day and planning structured activities and walking tours will keep these kids happy, energetic, and occupied. It is also important to plan rest times to let you and your kids both take a breather.

Jeanette Bunn Travel To Go President highly recommends a visit to Manito Park. A solace from the hustle-and-bustle of city life, Manito offers refuge in the spans of greenery and botanical sights. For culture and arts lovers, one would be remiss to skip out on a show at the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox. This centerpiece of the entertainment district opened in 1931 and still shows top acts within its art deco walls. Others will cherish a visit to the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture, an affiliate of the Smithsonian.
