Spend part of a day exploring the very best a city or cruise port has to offer.
Sometimes, you only have a few hours to spend in a city or town. You may just be passing through on your way to your final destination. Or perhaps you’re part of a tour group. It’s hard to know the best ways to spend the what little time you have in these places. When the cruise ships come in, port towns come to life. Seaside markets, unique boutiques, and souvenir shops abound. There’s often a lot to see right outside your door, but there are also options to venture beyond the basics to see more of the local culture and sights.
How do you decide what to do? Here’s where I can help. I’ll provide ideas for different ports of call, as well as the best ways to learn more about what’s available to do and see at each location.
