How many times have you experienced going to a place that seems interesting yet you have no idea what are the tourist attractions that city or country has to offer for its visitors? You would be fortunate enough if you have a friend, a family member or a travel agency that can guide you in that place you are visiting.
Unless money is not an issue for you, going through a travel agency could also be costly and many times many of you would say, "I wanted to see more of blah blah blah but I did not have enough time because . . . ." Wouldn't it be nice if you could have some idea of any tourist attractions of the place you are visiting?
Some of the resources you could find are books and the internet. Probably you could borrow a travel book from a library near you. Or probably buy a brand new travel book from the nearest bookstore. But just make sure that those books are updated, otherwise, you might miss new attractions.
Searching the internet is also a good idea. It has tons of resources, however, it could sometimes be confusing. Many sites offer some travel information. One of those is www.yourcheaphotels.com. This site feature a Travel Guide to the 50 states of the US. It features some descriptions of each US state and provides important tourist attractions that travellers should not miss to visit.
Let's suppose you visited South Dakota and you just visited the cities such as Mitchell and Pierre for sight seeing only. Upon your arrival back to your place, you tried bragging to a friend of your travel unaware that he had been there before. He would probably ask you, have you been to Mount Rushmore? You probably might say, why should I go visit a mountain? It is the site of the sculptures of the heads of presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt! You just missed the number 1 tourist attraction of South Dakota. How would you feel? Wasn't your trip a waste of money too? It would therefore be wise to have a travel guide or to do your home work ahead of time and know what to see and expect in that place you wish to visit.
Most of all, always try to make your hotel reservations ahead of time if you are visiting a place for more than a day or two so you won't keep on bringing your luggage with you as you travel around the place. You may make your hotel reservations at www.yourcheaphotels.com.
Well, well, well. Have you grasped the wisdom of the importance of having a travel guide? Are you ready to go for a tour now? Enjoy your trip and good luck.
