Travel Advice: 9 Tips For Visiting A Landmark You’ve Always Been Curious About


Whether you’re a local or just passing through, there are lots of ways to enjoy these attractions without having them overrun by large crowds. Here are some tips for how to make the most out of your visit:

Visit during the day.

Visiting during the day is a great way to avoid crowds. If you’re traveling with kids, this can also be a good way to keep them entertained and engaged in the experience.

If you have limited time, visiting during off-season will help ensure that there are fewer people around when you visit your landmark of choice. This can be especially helpful if it’s hot outside–you don’t want to deal with large crowds in the summer!

You might also consider visiting during a different time of year than normal (for example: winter vs summer).

Visit during a season you’ve never experienced before.

If you’ve been curious about a landmark and have never experienced the season in which it’s most popular, then now is your chance. Many landmarks are busiest during summer months, but there are many that draw visitors all year round–especially if they’re located near a city with seasonal weather extremes (like New York City). The winter months offer fewer crowds than any other time of year, so if you don’t like crowds or want to avoid them entirely, consider visiting in January or February when everyone else is hibernating indoors!

The best part? You’ll see things at these locations that no one else has seen before because they’re still covered with snow!

Don’t buy a ticket for an attraction that’s not open yet.

If you’re visiting a landmark that’s not open yet, don’t buy a ticket for an attraction that’s not open yet. You might think, “Well, I can just go back later,” but the attraction may not be open later and you will have wasted your money.

Here are some reasons why:

  • The attraction may not be open yet (it hasn’t opened for the season).
  • It may be under construction (construction crews are still working on it).
  • It may be closed for maintenance or repairs (the parts need to be fixed before they can reopen).
  • It could also just be closed because there aren’t enough people visiting at this time of year; if everyone stays away until summer rolls around again then no one will ever see their favorite tourist spots!

If you don’t want to be herded around, visit a smaller attraction that doesn’t have a lot of people.

If you don’t want to be herded around, visit a smaller attraction that doesn’t have a lot of people.

You can avoid the crowds by visiting during off-peak times, like weekdays and the middle of the day. Or go during a season you’ve never experienced before–the weather will be different and there might even be some new exhibits or events going on at your destination!

Some attractions aren’t even open yet (like Disney World’s Star Wars Land), so make sure that if you’re buying tickets for something like this, it will actually be open when you visit.

Take advantage of free entrance days and days when attractions have extended hours.

You might be surprised to learn that some attractions offer free admission on certain days. If you’re lucky, they’ll also have extended hours on those days and will stay open later than usual.

  • For example, the National Mall in Washington DC has extended hours on Martin Luther King Jr Day (the third Monday of every January) so you can enjoy all its monuments without having to worry about closing time.
  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City offers free admission for New Yorkers after 3pm every Friday during their “pay what you wish” policy.

If your destination offers both free entrance and extended hours at specific times throughout the year–and if those times correspond with your travel plans–then take advantage!

Pack snacks or buy them at the venue if they’re overpriced elsewhere.

Packing snacks is a great way to avoid overpriced and underwhelming food options at your destination. If you want to buy snacks at the venue, make sure they aren’t sold out of what you want before heading into the crowd or line.

If you don’t want to carry around a bag full of food and drink, consider bringing a cooler with ice packs so that nothing spoils while waiting in line for hours on end (or risk getting sick). If possible, bring friends who will share their snacks with each other! In addition to helping pass the time more quickly by chatting about anything from favorite TV shows to local news stories – this also makes everyone feel more comfortable because no one knows exactly how long they’ll have until their turn comes up again.”

Before you go, research all the different ways to see the landmark so you can choose what works best for you and your family or group.

  • Research the different ways to see the landmark. The best way to do this is by visiting the official website of your chosen landmark and looking through their various tours and packages.
  • Don’t go alone! If you’re traveling with children or another person who isn’t as interested in seeing landmarks, consider bringing along someone else who can appreciate what’s happening.
  • Make sure your kids are old enough for whatever experience they will have at their destination – some attractions aren’t suitable for young children (think: loud noises and flashing lights).

If it’s raining, you’ll want to bring appropriate clothing, like rain boots or umbrellas. And if it’s hot out, make sure you stay hydrated!

If you’re traveling in a place with a lot of rain, like Seattle or London, be sure to bring appropriate clothing. You’ll want rain boots and an umbrella! If it’s hot out and you’re visiting a landmark that requires walking around outside (like the Statue of Liberty), make sure to stay hydrated by bringing water with you.

Consider visiting during off-peak times (like during the week or midweek) or during particular times of day when crowds are smaller and lines shorter (early morning or late afternoon).

Visiting during off-peak times and days can help you avoid crowds. If you’re visiting during peak times, plan your trip to avoid the busiest attractions.

If you’re heading out of town for a weekend trip or vacation, consider visiting during midweek rather than on a weekend. Tourists tend to flock toward popular destinations on weekends and holidays, so if you want to avoid them altogether (or just minimize the number), try going midweek instead! This is especially helpful if there’s something specific about your destination that interests or excites you–maybe it’s an art museum exhibit or concert that has been getting rave reviews from critics? If so then consider checking out those events during non-peak hours when there are fewer people around; this way everyone gets their fair share of attention!

There are lots of ways to enjoy these attractions without having them overrun by large crowds

The most obvious way to enjoy your landmark is by visiting during the off-season. This means that you’ll probably have to travel a bit further and make sure you plan ahead, but if you do it right, crowds will be minimal and the weather will be just right! Some landmarks also offer free admission days or extended hours on certain days of the week–this can be a great way to get more bang for your buck if you’re looking for something cheap but worth seeing.

Another option is visiting early in the morning before workers have arrived yet (or late at night after they’ve gone home). You might think this would get boring quickly as there wouldn’t be much going on besides people walking around cleaning up after themselves or talking amongst themselves while maintaining their duties. However, this was actually one of my favorite parts because it felt like being part of some kind of secret society where only certain privileged individuals know how things work here…and now so do we!
