How to Get to Know Your New Town in a Weekend

Wear comfy shoes. Walk everywhere you can.

Eat all meals at solely nonchain restaurants and at least one diner (if there is one) to check out the locals.

Visit the nearest park to people-watch.

Stop by at least two historic buildings or museums.

Go shopping (at local boutiques). Buy something.

Make your way to a local bar, and chat with the bartender (who will definitely have some tips for you).
