We travel for fun a lot, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be learning at the same time! Turn every trip into a memorable and applicable life-long learning experience.

If you plan ahead, you can request brochures and information packets to be mailed to you, but even en route there are plenty of places to stop for helpful travel resources.
If you are not already in the habit of stopping at local and state Visitor Centers when you travel, then add another stop on the itinerary. These helpful offices are staffed with locals who can give you insider information about the places on your travel agenda and can suggest places to stop along the route. Besides having a plethora of tourism brochures, many visitor centers also help with making lodging reservations.
State Vacation Guides
Each State has a tourism bureau that produces statewide promotional travel materials. The Vacation Guide usually looks like a beautiful glossy magazine with professional photography and text that could have only been written by an ad agency. More importantly, it also has a phone book style listing of every destination across the entire state including all attractions, and unique lodging and dining.
