Seek Out the Local Deals
Wherever possible, use public transportation rather than taxis. Look for day- or weeklong transit passes, museum and attraction passes, senior or student discounts (if you qualify), and any other similar deals. Check with the local visitor office, either before you start your trip or as soon as you arrive, for any specials available to visitors. Use the discount theater booths in London and New York or online ticketing agencies that cover events nationwide.
