Research

When was the last time you spent wandering around your hometown or the surrounding area?

  • Begin by researching your hometown.  
  • Look for anything new that interests you.
  • Join social media groups that focus on your hometown or county. The shared information is a great resource.

Check Seasonal Events for Autumn

The changing seasons bring new community events. The autumn events are generally a yearly occurrence.

  • Farmers’ Markets
  • Pumpkin weighing contests
  • Corn mazes
  • Haunted houses
  • Homecoming parades
  • Fairs and festivals
  • Craft shows

Write a Local Bucket List

Approach your hometown like any other travel destination. Begin by making a list of places you want to see. Are you traveling solo or with family and friends? Travel buddies are a great way to enjoy your hometown experience with a new perspective.

  • Check out new restaurants, revisit childhood favorites, and go to art galleries, historical sites, or other interesting events.
  • Consider taking a different mode of transportation to get around your hometown. Ride the bus, rent an e-bike, or walk around your neighborhood. The change in transportation is a great way to see everyday sights from a new perspective.
  • Go ahead and use coupons for discounts on meals, tours, or admission costs.  Many coupons use free items as an incentive for spending a certain amount of money. Businesses use self-promoting products as a way to draw tourists to their locations.
  • Check out the tours of your local hometown attractions. Follow the tour guide throughout the museum or local sites. Every tour is a learning experience.
  • Buy postcards.
  • Take business cards.

Document Your Travels

Do not forget your camera. Or use your phone to document your travels around your hometown.

  • Eat or get a beverage at a local café. Try the hometown special. If you are traveling solo, bring a small journal with you. Use the time at the cafe to write notes about your day’s experiences.
  • Take photos of everything. Even if you pass the place every day going to work or running errands, stop and take a photo. Try different angles. The final results may surprise you.
  • After each hometown adventure, create a scrapbook with photos, postcards, and notes.

Have fun! Enjoy your day acting like a tourist in your hometown.
