Support Local

Enhance your trip and the communities you visit by supporting local
The joys of travel come from seeing things you can't see in your own hometown. This includes national parks and scenic beauty, but also the one-of-a-kind shops, guided experiences, galleries and eateries that are unique to a specific community and locally-run and cared for. 
As a conscientious traveler, you can make small adjustments to your travels that will mean a lot to the communities you visit. When you support local establishments during your travels, you can feel good knowing that your trip and your travel dollars are making a difference in a local's life. This shared ethic of respect and reciprocity is part of the travel ethic we call, Forever Mighty
