Everyone knows that planning a vacation can be tricky at times. You want to allow for plenty of relaxation time in a picturesque setting. Still, it would seem like a shame to visit a fantastic destination without getting out and about to experience everything that it has to offer. Moreover, how does one even go about picking the right destination that will provide for a holiday that is relaxing, memorable, and interesting?
One way to get everything you want from your vacation is to indulge your inner nerd. Most people have some genre of entertainment that they enjoy more than most. Use that as a theme for your vacation, and you will be sure to create and enjoy the experience of a lifetime.
Book a Tour
If you are going to indulge your inner nerd while on vacation, you will want to first pick a location that is relevant to the book, movie, or television show that you are nerdy about. Once you lock in the perfect location, the real fun begins. Do some research into the locations where famous scenes were filmed or into the places that gave your favorite author the inspiration, they needed to write your favorite stories.
While you can always visit these locations on your own, you can have a real experience by booking a tour. Companies like Silverscreen Tours specialize in such outings. Visit the scene of King’s Landing from Game of Thrones or explore the grounds that brought Winterfell to life. By booking a tour, you will learn all the behind-the-scene facts about your favorite show.
Pick Your Accommodations Wisely
When a highly popular film franchise or television show is set in or based on a real-world location, that place becomes instantly more popular as well. Such places generally see a boost in tourism and an uptick in the local economy as a result. For this reason, if you are traveling to a destination that has been made incredibly popular by a series as universally known and loved as Game of Throne, for instance, you will want to pick the right accommodations.
During the peak season for a destination, you might be hard-pressed to find a hotel or resort that isn’t full of people seeking the same things you are on vacation. With the right research, though, you can find places that aren’t overly crowded. You might even want to consider booking private accommodations like a vacation house or villa.
Reserve a Seat at Themed Restaurants and Bars
Another way that cities that have gained notoriety for being associated with a pop-culture phenomenon have are themed restaurants and bars. Such places can make you feel as if you have been transported to your favorite film or TV show for dinner, something that is sure to be a memorable experience. Enjoy food and drink that have been crafted particularly for enthusiasts that will be sure to take your anniversary vacation to the next level.
