How not to be a tourist
Let's face it, it just isn't cool to be a tourist. Taxi drivers rip you off & you're the lowest of the low on the food chain. Yet every year millions of travellers fall into the largest trap of looking, acting & living like a tourist. You may score an A for studying your travel guide, but there ain't no smart like street smart.
Don’t go to the large chain restaurants like Morton’s or the Cheesecake Factory, unless you just really want to try them. There are much better local choices that are better value for money.
