When I visit a city, I want to get all of the "sight-seeing" done in the first day. For the majority of the vacation, and my favorite part, I love to do the city like the residents do. Eat at the hole-in-the-wall places, run on the beach, read in the parks, explore the roads less traveled.
Can you tell vacation is on my mind?
