Traveling to a new city is a fantastic adventure for me, and I'm lucky enough to do it regularly for work. Though I'm usually booked during the day, there's no reason to spend the rest of my trip cooped up in a hotel room. I love to read up on the local restaurant scene, find the hot spots for shopping, and book a hotel room in a great area - all within walking distance of where I'll be working. Sometimes it's a challenge, but it's always worth the effort.
