Not Traveling? Go Local with Groupon Things To Do

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine. Look, not everyone can travel all of the time. Between my trips, I spent quite a bit of time at home. Enter Groupon. Since my recent trip to Europe, I have been trying to get out more and explore more of L.A., and given how much I have loved using Groupon in the past, I plan to accomplish this at a discount using Groupon Things To Do.

One major area I want to increase is trying different restaurants in various areas (I am a travel and foodie blogger, after all). It’s so easy to get in a rut and go with the same old restaurant you eat at every week. I have used Groupon to get some great restaurant discounts in the past, so my plan is to try some new spots in the coming months. And for the wine lover, they even have wine tours on sale. I’ve used Groupon to find things to do all over town, like spas, concerts, and other activities. And for the parents, they have great activities in Groupon Things To Do for the kiddos (and your sanity).

Another option for using Groupon to find things to do is if you are planning a local staycation (and of course, your regular vacation). Groupon is a great resource for finding activities you may not usually participate in or even know about around town. Sometimes it’s fun to be a tourist in your own city, as I mentioned in my post about doing local staycations. Take a bus tour, visit a museum, or explore an area of town that you aren’t familiar with. I have to admit, sometimes, I just search Groupon for restaurants and activities in town to make myself get out of my comfort zone and try new things. And who can argue with trying new things at a discount? And Groupon is worldwide, so what are you waiting for?

So let me know your thoughts? What are your favorite things to get for a discount with Groupon?
