Being in a new place is already scary enough, but having to do so in the middle of the pandemic can make it even more challenging.
With a little flexibility and an open mind, you can change the way you do things to fit in and get accustomed to a new city!
Be a Tourist with Virtual Resources
Plan out a few days to tour this new city with your family. Look up tourist hot spots, family-friendly places around town, and anything that can help you learn about the town’s history — in a fun way! The sooner you feel like a local, the happier you’ll be.
Treat this like a vacation and plan out your entire day. Be sure you look up the hours, guidelines, and safety rules for establishments in the area.
Use Your Virtual Resources to Dine Like a Local
Plan a menu for the first few nights at your new home. With some new food and less stress of finding the pots and pans, you can get to know the city through its tastes and smells as you take in the many cuisines it has to offer.
Pick a different kind of food every night or battle it out and see what pizza place really is the best! You won’t have to worry about social distancing when you’re eating at home!
Use Your Virtual Resources to Read the Local City Events
Many cities have event-based blogs and websites, like Austin’s Do512, where you can find things for any interest that may be happening around the area. Other online publications, like the local newspaper, usually offers a calendar of events so you can know what is going on for you and your family!
Join a virtual community for your hobbies and enjoy them in-person once the country opens back up. Don’t be afraid to connect with new friends in your area!
Join neighborhood social groups and pages can help you get quickly connected to local resources, events, and services you may need in the city!
