A lot of people like to plan out every detail of their trip, including where to eat and what attractions to visit, before they even leave home. After all, this is the best way to ensure nothing goes wrong and everyone has a good time. Sometimes, though, it can be fun to go on a trip without any plans other than where you are going to stay at night. This type of spontaneity can provide a real adventure for you and your vacation party. Plus, most vacation destinations have plenty of attractions that don’t require additional planning.
If you are going on a vacation without any plans, it’s a good idea to spend some time in your hotel’s lobby once you get there. You can talk to other vacationers to see what they’re doing and get recommendations from the hotel staff. Then, the vacation group can get together and decide what to do.
Another place where you can get attraction ideas is from travel brochures. Many hotels have small gift shops or an area in their lobby where brochures are displayed. Brochures can be an excellent resource for travelers because they tend to include the most popular attractions in the area and provide lots of information and sometimes discounts too.
Some people don’t like to look at travel brochures because the attractions that are represented are too “touristy” or expensive. In a lot of the cases, this can be true, but they can still help you find places that would have otherwise gone unnoticed. You should always stop by these brochure stands to see if there are any attractions that are worthwhile, especially if you haven’t made plans ahead of time.
It can be stressful to go on vacation without any plans, but you can’t let the stress get to you. Have a sense of adventure and enjoy the spontaneity. Travel brochures can help you once you get there.
