Tip #40 - Ask for Travel Recommendations
Get recommendations about the things you love from people you trust. Once you've decided on your destination, spread the word! Ask around among your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc--you never know who might have already traveled to where you're going and have some amazing suggestions for off-the-beaten-path places you should check out. Also, if you're an active Internet user, ask for the advice of your online community: post on Facebook or Twitter that you're traveling and looking for local places to hit, ask questions in forums you frequent or even take this opportunity to join the discussion groups of some new sites to see what the users have to say about the area you'll be visiting.
