Cupid’s Advice: 

Whether you and your partner are visiting a new city for your honeymoon, anniversary, or a simple vacation, getting to know the food, sights, and general aura of each place will help you to get the most out of what each city has to offer. Gain inspiration from this famous couple and explore cities in a fun and delicious way. Here are three of Cupid’s tips for creative things you and your significant other can do when exploring a new city.

1. Go to their local market or grocery store: Eating a city’s local cuisine is one of the best ways to connect to each place on a deeper level. Visit a city’s outdoor market if they have one, or even grocery store and check out their fun and unique food. Sample a little or a lot of the local fare, and buy a few of your favorite snacks to stash into your luggage on the trip home.

2. Ditch the hotel: Instead of staying at a fancy hotel during your vacation, stay with a host family, or try a service like Airbnb to rent out someone’s home or apartment. Living how the locals do will help you and your partner to get an authentic feel for living in any particular city.

3. Walk around without a map: Once you and your partner have seen the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, or the Sistine Chapel , take some time to wander aimlessly around the city and explore to your heart’s content. Go into small shops or boutiques and practice your language skills with the shop owners. Buy a souvenir or two to take back home with you.
