If you are a fan of travelling, it can be easy to always be ticking items off your 'bucket list' and visiting new locations. However, now and then it's nice to explore your city in more detail and have a 'stay-cation'. Here are a few ways that you can explore a familiar location from a different angle.
One way to get a different perspective on your city is from above. An aerial tour can be a great way to take in the tall buildings or sweeping vistas of your home. Even those long roads that snarl up with traffic at the end of the day often seem quite a bit more scenic and beautiful when you can see them from above. You can also get an aerial tour to take you over areas that you may not have explore before, such as harbours or local nature reserves.
Exploring the underground
If you live in an older city, there can be a lot of interesting infrastructure hidden under the surface. Why not see if your city has a tour of the sewer or other underground caves and tunnels? While these may not seem like the most romantic locations, they can be beautiful and interesting locations to explore. Equally, exploring your city from a new angle is a good way to appreciate the magnitude of all that activity going on below you. Why not contact your local tourist bureau and quiz them on less-common underground tours?
Navigating the water ways
Many of our cities were built close to large waterways to help support the city, but these days we don't think about them as much, as we get water out of the tap and mainly travel by land. Exploring the local waterways can help you to see the city from a different angle and can even help you to see how much wildlife exists alongside the city. This can be a fun way to see the city from a different view and is often a very peaceful way to observe the natural flow and motion of your city.
If you are planning on travelling but want a relaxing minibreak, why not consider a stay-cation in your city? You can often find fun and unique tours including aerial tours and underground tours by contacting your local tourist bureau. These tours can help you to experience your city from a whole new perspective.Share
