I like to avoid chain restaurants. Some are ok. I don't like to drop a lot of $ taking hungry teens to fine dining establishments.
I am low maintenance when it comes to lodgings. I love camping and I don't care about cheap hotels if nothing else is around. I love the nice places if I can figure out a way to pay less! I use bidding sites to get cheap hotel rooms, and have stayed in hostels.
I like to find out what an area's local personality is, not just go the tourist sites. What do people who live there do for fun? I'd like to know. I have lived in many areas across the country and have tried to get to know each one.
I'd rather have the independence provided by a car, but will use public transit if it is convenient. I have an appreciation of the long road trip. My favorite trips are with a crowd. I like making a list of several ideas and then letting the group come up with a plan so I'm not a travel dictator.
