Don't be this person. Find out what you should do and
Thoroughly research your destination and potential activities! In addition to checking out the guidebooks and tourism board, my favorite place to seek out is the webpage of the local paper or city magazine. Periodicals geared toward locals have reviews of newer places and upcoming events, and sometimes even post discounts, too! If you don't take the time to do this before you leave, make a stop at a grocery store once at your destination. In addition to stocking that local paper, these shops also have free community papers and other booklets usually at the front of the store. Sure, some of these discounts are for things you won't want anyway, but it just takes one good saving to make the extra effort pay off.
