Finding Fun Things to Do Near Me

When I’m traveling to a new area, I often search for “Fun Things to Do Near” and then include the city name. The trick is to switch over to an image search, in order to quickly find things that visually look like a lot of fun. Whether it be places to go with kids, or places that will appeal to the entire family, I find that image searches are a great way to quickly find the best places to go near me.

If so, the final step is to find the official website and check for hours, restrictions like age limits, etc.
